Domestic and international travelers have yet to unravel Northeast India. In a virtual tour of the region, this fact came to the forefront recently for various stakeholders of the tourism.
While displaying the various festivals, crafts, tribes, culture of the local people and valleys like Dzukou and Sangti of the region, the Tourism Ministry arranged a webinar and offered many attractive destinations of four Northeastern states — Nagaland, Arunachal Pradesh, Assam and Sikkim.
Named as ‘Northeast India for the Immersive Traveller’, the Dekho Apna Desh webinar has emphasized innumerable facts in regards to the province which remained quite untouched to the outside world. The presenters threw light on the unexplored destinations, tribes, festivals, crafts, culture of the local people to put across the message that this region of India is not only related to gorgeous hills and mountains but a lot more is in store. Some of the wonders and experiences that Northeast India offers to the travel aficionados were highlighted in the webinar like the Dzukou valley located between Manipur and Nagaland, a crater base of an extinct volcano.
Also, the well-known Dzukou lily is specifically found in this region only. The annual Hornbill festival is observed from 1 December to 10 December in Kohima. It’s a major attraction for domestic as well as international tourists, leading to the development of tourist amenities in Nagaland. The opportunities that Arunachal Pradesh, the largest northeastern state in India, offers to tourists were well covered by the presenters in the webinar.
