We all know that North East India is one of the offbeat and less visited sector in India. It’s difficult to conduct outings there because of its geographical position as well as lack of tourism infrastructures. Kindly go through the below points before confirming your registrations and make yourself ready for this Unique journey.
1. Lunch : While travelling, lunch is not included in the cost as we are going to halt at stand alone Dhaba’s enroute which gives you limited options and also there are chances that lunch gets delayed due to any circumstances.
2. Roads : The roads from Guwahati to Nagaland are bad, so the actual travel time may increase than mentioned in the itinerary.
3. Schedule : Because of it’s geographical position we will have to shuffle our schedule according to the situation. Sun rise time there is 04:30 to 05:00 am and Sun set time will
be 04:30 to 04:45 pm. so we have to start our journey early morning so that we can get more time to explore. at some point we have to do en route breakfast also ( as the most of the hotel restaurant starts at 08:00 am onwards)
4. Changes in Itinerary : We reserved all the rights to shuffle the tour program according to the current situation.
5. Hornbill Festival schedule : The schedule of activities and cultural performances at Hornbill Festival is published a day prior to the festival.
