The land of the warrior race of the Naga people is tucked away in the far end of North-East India, sharing international boundary with Myanmar. Nagaland is well known for its legend of the fearsome headhunting tribes. Up until the 19th century, the practice of headhunting was still prevalent more out of pride and glory in battles than for bounty or rewards. The entry of Christian missionaries swept in an overwhelming cultural transformation, showing the exit door to several customs, including headhunting and animism. Sixteen different tribes in this dominantly hilly state, with their own unique traditions and languages, find common ground through the Nagamese language and a fierce warrior tradition of yore.
Arunachal, literally translating to “the land of the rising sun” is the last frontier state of India surrounded on three sides by Bhutan, China and Myanmar.

Tucked away in the remote reaches of the Himalayas, only a few of its mountain peaks have been named and numerous yet to be scaled and explored. Its jungles are teeming with various life forms, and houses numerous endangered species of wild life, birds, plants and orchids. It has over 500 bird species (most popular being the Great Indian Hornbill, Masked Finfoot, Sclater’s Monal, Baer’s Pochard, Greater Adjutant, etc.) and new species being discovered in the recent years, making it one of the top birding sites in the world. It is also home to the red panda and rare cats like Clouded Leopard and snow Leopard. The state has 26 major tribes and a number of sub tribes with delicately tattooed faces and pierced skin and their festivals that still see traces of paganism. It is also a place for some famous monasteries and a rich Buddhist culture.
