5 Amazing Adventure Sports You Should Not Miss in Northeast India


The entire Himalayan range is a delight and attracts tourists, nature photographers, and wildlife lovers every year. However, those less restricted enjoy exploring the unknown roads of Northeast India. These states are becoming hubs for adventure seekers who will be able to do more than take photos of snowy mountains or nature. If you’re looking for extreme sports to do while you travel the Northeast, here are some options. Here are the top ten adventure activities in North East India tour packages.

1 White Water Rafting

White water rafting enthusiasts will find many places where the rivers flow through hilly terrains. You can simply jump into a raft to experience the excitement of floating. Northeast India, Assam, and the borders of Arunachal Pradesh all have River Brahmaputra (or River Siang in Arunachal Pradesh). It flows through most places. You can consult local guides to find out if rafting is allowed. Manas river, near Manas National Park, and Jia Bhorali River in Nameri National Park are the best places to experience water rafting in Assam.

Water rafting down the beautiful icy waters of the Rangit and Teesta rivers is a must-do activity when you visit Sikkim. For some Grade IV rapids, you should raft down the Subansiri River of Arunachal Pradesh.

2 Trekking

Trekking through unknown terrains is a popular outdoor activity. This includes the dense forests of Arunachal Pradesh and the higher ranges in Nagaland or Meghalaya. For those who want to trek through the Himalayan ranges, the activity can be a pure delight. However, the thrill seekers might feel awed and excited by the unknown terrain. Most trekkers visit Dzuko Valley and the living root bridge, which are only a few of the top destinations for trekking. These are not the only difficult to moderate trekking routes you can enjoy in Northeast India. A couple of modest trekking destinations are the double-decker living root bridge in Cherrapunji and the David scot trail in Shillong.

Goeche La trek, Sandakphu, and the trekking trails in Namdapha National Park make these some of the most difficult places to visit.

3 Kayaking

You must visit Mawphanlur or Nongkhnum Island in Meghalaya if you love adventure sports and kayaking. Mawphanlur is a beautiful place to visit and a great base for kayaking. Kayaking is also possible at Kynshi River, 15km from Nongstoin. This amazing adventure sport is available to anyone who drives down to Meghalaya.

4 Rappelling

You can rappel in Meghalaya from small hills and waterfalls. There are also risky rapids that will test your endurance and challenge your spirit. Elephant Falls is a great place to rappel down waterfalls. Shnongpdeng village is another option for rock climbing and rappelling.
