Hornbill Festival, Meghalaya and Kaziranga National Park
The north-east of India has been isolated for many decades due to geographical and political conditions and was considered a black spot on the tourist map.
It is only in recent years that the strict entry regulations have been relaxed somewhat, meaning that we are now allowed to build a bridge to this region between Tibet and Burma. The traditional way of life of the more than 500 indigenous groups living here has been little affected by the modern world to this day and the natural environment has also been preserved in its original diversity to a large extent. A tour to these remote areas impresses with breathtaking panoramas, fascinating animal observations and inspiring cultural experiences.
Every year in the first days of December, the 17 major peoples of the region present their history, dances and songs, skillful handicrafts and many other traditions at the Kisama Festival Ground as part of the Hornbill Festival. Try the local dishes! Visits to the villages of some very different indigenous tribes give you a glimpse into the everyday life of these friendly people. The naturalness with which they live sustainably in and with nature is extremely impressive. Visits to sights, temples and museums round off the cultural experience. The exuberant and often almost untouched nature of the region presents itself at all times when looking over mountain ridges, valleys and plains – the drives to new stops on the tour always provide highlights.
The flora and fauna of Kaziranga National Park, a World Heritage Site that protects populations of various endangered animal and plant species and which can be explored on safaris during this tour, is explained in more detail. Will we catch a glimpse of Indian rhinos and tigers? Let us whisk you away into a diverse, exotic and enduringly impressive world and cross the bridge with us into the mysterious region of north-eastern India, into a world of pristine nature, indigenous peoples with a living history, ancient legends and impressive craftsmanship.
