What comes to your mind when someone mentions Northeast India? I think of untouched pristine beautiful vistas, mouth-watering cuisines, friendly locals, misty waterfalls and an intriguing rich culture. Northeast India has somehow still managed to hold an aura of mystery in the world, even though just about all information is just a click away.
Kaushik Shanmugam, a 24-year-old hailing from Chennai, went on a spontaneous trip for a month right after quitting his job to experience the mystical charms of Northeast India and came back with a whole bunch of marvellous stories.
Let's get more insight into his beautiful journey.
Hi Kaushik. Your journey sounds very interesting! Please tell the Tripoto community more about yourself.
I was born and brought up in Chennai. While growing up, I went on frequent trips with my family and I think that's when I discovered my love for travel. I did my engineering studies in Chennai but I was not ready to take up a job as I felt that I would hate losing my freedom to someone and would not be able to do what I want. I moved to Ireland for my master's degree and apart from attending the college, all I did there was travel.
