  • There are uncountable places to visit in North East India. Some are mostly untouched and as beautiful as the North, the South or the Western part of India. From rich diversity and a rare multitude of species, unique wildlife and the authentic tribal touch in all the eight states; this far eastern corner on the map of India is literally unexplored. North East India tourist places promise experiences found nowhere on earth with their extraordinary beauty.

    The hilltop monasteries, the meandering curves, the crystal clear water of rivers and falls and the thick stretches of green forests; North East India is brimming with landscapes and sceneries that you must see once in a lifetime. If you are looking for something off the grid and ready to take challenges then head to Arunachal Pradesh. The land in Arunachal Pradesh is largely undiscovered, also because of strict border rules and a dearth of proper roads and routes.

    Places like Tawang, Ziro, Bhalukpong, Bomdila, and Gorichen Peak etc are few of the known places with working roads to travel to. Imagine yourself sitting atop an Elephant while you come face to face with a Rhino in Kaziranga. The crystal clear pools of Dawki and Majuli look celestial and lures travelers in taking a dive. The evening boat rides in lakes like Maswani and Nagula are calming and give you a sense of isolation.

    A simple walk with lamas and monks of Bomdila monastery and Tawang can be life-altering. The village walks in Dibrugarh and Mon will give an insight of the region and slow life that unfurls in the mountains. Northeastern corridor of India has unhindered landscapes and nature, there is still time for it to become commercial and before that a trip to all the eight states is mandatory.

Goecha La Trek

Goecha La is a high mountain pass in the Himalayan range. The trek starts at the sleepy little town of Yuksom in West Sikkim. The town is very pretty with lush green surroundings and a salubrious weather to go with it. You can shop for all supplies at Yuksom before beginning the trek as this is the only place where you will get to buy all your necessary items.

Furthermore, before trekking the Goecha La, you will have to do two things, first make an entry at the local police station and second pay the permit fees at the forest check post. Usually the agencies take care of all these hassles and you will not have to bother about them.


The first phase of the trek to Goecha La will take you from Yuksom to Sachen. Yuksom is situated at an altitude of 5,700 feet and Sachen is situated at an elevation of 7, 200 feet. The trekking trail passes through a route of immense natural beauty. You will come across lush green fields, valley of the Rathong River and thick forests. From Sachen you will need to climb ahead to Tshoka which is at an altitude of 9,650 feet.

This trek is quite enjoyable in the initial phase but becomes tryingly steep towards the later phase. On reaching Bakhim, you can enjoy a spectacular view of the Yuksom valley.
