Surreal Northeast

I always dreamt of travelling to a secluded place, a place less travelled, a place which has surreal beauties hidden deep inside. I always thought that these places are far from where I live, unreachable. Expense was one of the biggest concern while thinking of these places, as they are not easily accessible… until we decided to visit the less travelled states of north-east India.

We decided to step on three beautiful states of the north-east – Assam, Meghalaya & Arunachal Pradesh. With this visit I have now been to 24 of 36 states in India (as of Jan 2016). Hope to cover the remaining ones soon :).

It was a 11 day trip covering three beautiful states. We were 6 adults and 1 kid. We booked a Tata Sumo for complete trip. Our friend Hemanta picked us from Guwahati airport and dropped us back there safely with bags full of happiness and delightful experience. I would strongly recommend him for your northeast travel. He is not only an excellent driver but a calm, friendly local who injects you with his endemic knowledge throughout the trip.


Dawki – Hidden gem of India

Throughout my life I have always been fascinated with water, fascinated by its beauty, fascinated by the number of forms it can take, fascinated by its nature. Water can be calm and violent too, it can be soothing and disturbing too, it makes sea and covers mountains too in the form of snow. I always wanted to visit a place where water would look surreal, as I’ve always seen in images on the internet. Let me confess that every time I saw these images with pristine blue waters I would question myself if it really is true or is it photo-shopped.

However on my recent journey through north-east India I discovered these surreal water-bodies that I always dreamt of. This was by far most exquisite trip of mine till date.
