A trip to Sikkim, perched between Nepal, Bhutan, Tibet (China) and Darjeeling is a true Himalayan experience, considering that it is home to Mount khanchendzong, the third highest peak in the world. The rich biodiversity in flora and fauna, the variety of ethnic faces in their customs, traditions and cultures and the climate, between the tropical heat of the valleys and the alpine cold of the snow-covered regions, will make these places unforgettable.

Arunachal Pradesh is the northernmost and borders directly with China and Burma. For strategic or war reasons it was therefore closed to tourism for a long time and is now one of the wildest places in India and perhaps Asia. The railway, omnipresent in India, does not arrive here, nor are there direct flights to this state. The semi-isolation has favored the preservation of ancient traditions kept by the tribals who still live here.
