Tribal North East India Holidays

Meghalaya Hills

Possibly India's best kept secret

Stay on the world's largest river island, cruise along the Brahmaputra and meet indigenous tribal groups

As you hit the highway out of Guwahati you know you’re on the very edge of India, and are about to venture somewhere rather special. These lands are unexpected and nothing like the rest of the country. The remote tribal regions of the North East are quite possibly India’s best kept secret.

Here you can stay in a family home in Majuli, the world’s largest river island where houses are built on stilts. You can cruise down the mighty Brahmaputra river in luxury, and explore the villages on the banks. Or say hello to the one-horned rhino in Kaziranga National Park before heading back to the peace of the river lodge. This is also where you can rub shoulders with head-hunting tribes, have a proper cup of tea in Assam, and walk across forest rivers on the famous living root bridges in Meghalaya, the “Abode of the Clouds”. This latter little pocket of India is fondly known as the “Scotland of the East” - a land where clouds sit at the bottom of valleys.

Our Difference

The Far & Wild Community...

We think that the best people to talk about an experience are those directly linked to it. Our website and brochures let the ‘real experts’ show their stuff… local experts, travellers & industry insiders. Look out for the coloured markers all around the site... they mean that you are reading something contributed directly by a person from one of these different parts of the community we are part of.

The best memories aren’t simply places and hotels, they are made up of experiences and people… so we connect with local communities, and strive for sustainable travel to make your holiday special
