Our tri-state Northeast motorcycle tour takes you through the best places to visit in Assam, Nagaland, and Meghalaya. Discover the best of these states as you ride through the stunning landscapes – from riverside rides to zipping through bends in the mountains. Discover the best sights in Assam as we explore interesting places in Guwahati and indulge in traditional Assamese cuisine. Explore the lesser-known destination of Umrangso, a waterside town known for its simplistic charm.
Meghalaya is often referred to as the Abode of Clouds and is a crown jewel of the North-Eastern states of India. The ever-growing tourist hotspot can wow you with its stunning waterfalls, pleasant climate, gorgeous valleys, lakes, caves, and lively culture. However, the focal point of tourism seems to be the numerous, scenic waterfalls scattered all over the hill region, and these attract thousands of people to the heavenly state each day.
Just 15 kilometers from Shillong, is Smit village that is known for its misty hills, undisturbed locales, and gorgeous views. The pollution-free village revels in its simplicity and that’s what is attracting travelers. If you are looking to get away from the hustle and bustle of Shillong, then the serenity of Smit will take your breath away. Close to Smit, is another unique destination, Laitlum Canyons. Often dubbed as the Grand Canyons of India, the Laitlum Canyons are a sight to behold. Located just 8 kilometers from Smit, you can drive to the top of the canyon from where you get scintillating views of the surrounding landscapes. And if you want something dreamy, go there during sunrise or sunsets!
The landscape of Nagaland is mostly mountainous and everything – right from the food, culture, farming habits, and traditions, is influenced by it. The Naga hills start from the Brahmaputra Valley and range in altitude of 2,000-6,000 feet. But the highest point in Nagaland is Mount Saramati that stands tall at 12,552 feet. It is the point where the Naga Hills converge to meet the Patkai Range in Myanmar.
One of the most breathtaking and scintillating landscapes of Nagaland is in the Dzukou Valley. It’s an ethereal combination of meadows, rivulets, green hills, meandering clouds, and massive open lung spaces that leave travelers speechless! The undulating curves of the hills in the Dzukou Valley are extremely charming and a feast to the senses. And this makes Dzukou Valley one of the best places to visit in Nagaland.
