7 sister states of India: Unexplored and Isolated Paradise…A place of pure and undamaged by Modernization : They are;

Assam, Arunachal Pradesh, Meghalaya, Manipur, Mizoram, Nagaland and Tripura

A living-land; rich in biodiversity, resources of an excellent nature, forests, hills, mountains, waterfalls and rivers. Plenty of innocence and many more to remember, praise and also to celebrate. But…??? How regularly we hear about these places?

I Think that’s the reason behind of calling it as the land of untold, untouched and rarely spoken…Though, filled with beauty of nature, ethnicity presence of many origins and cultural variations. Let’s get more into these beautiful places… A motivation to explore the unspoken and unseen marvelous beauty of nature, biodiversity and people.

Arunachal Pradesh:

Final words to recall and memorize about the mesmerizing places, Those I have in my mind to visit in the next coming year.

When I look at these places I realize that India has so much beauty of nature, and is a place of beautiful people with pure heartedness and blessing smiles. The living, The people, The culture, The food, The festivals, The dance and music make these places a lot better and beautiful to be visited undoubtedly.

A lot many things other than the fascinating and pure with greenery and biodiversity make these places so special. Exquisite North Indian cuisines, Koat Pitha (Banana pitha), Bamboo Shoot Fry, Poora Haah (Roasted duck), etc., Tea based, silk, bamboo and handicrafts industries, One-horned rhinoceros, elephants and other endangered wildlife makes these places most beautiful.

For security reasons, like inter-tribal tensions and disputed borders with neighboring China, restrictions on foreigners visiting the area, hampering the development of the potentially profitable tourism industry.

Guys, aren't they really mesmerizing places, aren't they calling you there, of course undoubtedly with out any thought right ;)
