Landscape Photography, Astro Photography, Travel Photography and People and Culture Photography, Tribal Photography Tour North East India, Assam and Nagaland

This tour has a great mix of everything - wildlife photography, people and culture photography, and then festival photography.

Kaziranga is home to one-horned Rhinos and people come here from all over the world to see them. After spending a morning in Kaziranga, we go to Majuli.

The place is so beautiful and the lovely inhabitants of this island (the largest river island on a river in the world) will make your tour worthwhile. There is so much to see and do in Majuli that you would always want to come back for more.

After spending a night in Majuli, we drive to the Hornbill festival in Nagaland. This is the only festival in Nagaland where all the tribes from all over Nagaland come here and participate in cultural activities. 

As it is organized by the Department of Tourism, it is a bit polished and not raw as these people actually are, but again the only place where you will see all the tribes in one place. 

If you want to see the raw festival in Nagaland, you should attend the Aoling Festival.

After spending two days at the festival, we will spend a day going around Kohima inhabited by the Angami tribals which will give you an introduction to life in Nagaland.
