There is a lot of diversity in the heritage and cultural practices in the states of North East India. The diversity in the languages and traditions are still alive in the villages and cities of North East India. The most interesting thing about the cultures is that every state in the North East has several subcultures with its own traditions and rituals.
The famous Hornbill Festival of Nagaland and the Sangai Festival of Manipur are the most popular in North-East India. Many plans are being developed to make these festivals accessible to more and more people.
Most of North East India is opening up for the tourists and the time is right to make the necessary developments to support the revival of tourism. All the safety guidelines are in place to help in the return of the tourists and keep the tourism destinations safe to travel.
