Arunachal Pradesh is stunningly distinct from the archetypal image of Himalayan scenery and culture. The strong Tibetan and Buddhist culture is infused in the people and landscapes. With its vast expanses of impenetrable forests and tiny population, Arunachal is the untouched beauty in its purest form. Then there is the state of Nagaland most famous for its unique indigenous tribes.

Meghalaya is considered as the wettest region in India and the state capital Shillong is known as the "Scotland of the East". Out of the 5 highest waterfalls in India, Meghalaya is home to 3 of them (Langshiang Falls, Nohkalikai Falls and Nohsngithiang Falls).
