We Nature-Hunt, know North-East of India very well. Assam and its six neighbouring states of the North-East are known for their bio-geographic richness. With its dense forests, uneven topography, flora and fauna, the majestic Brahmaputra and its tributaries, diverse cultures, North-East India offers basically nature-centric tourism.
We provide the best accommodation available in keeping with the natural environments of our destinations. Traditional houses, ethnic meals, camping, folk cultures etc are arranged where appropriate and as per needs. We give chances the guests to interact with the local peoples, their ethnicity, cultures.
Eco-Tourism is recently hitting the headlines and perhaps the mostly used word in travel industry now a days. But this is an area we have taken seriously for some time. We are trying to make the local people as well as the guests aware about the conservation of flora and fauna through our activities.
In addition to the above, we are also trying for extra degree of customisation of the tour. So if you have any idea, suggestion or question, please communicate to us.
