Dear Reader,We travelled to the North East in Mid May 2015.We were six of us:My husband and myself in our 60s,our 2 daughters and two grandchildren,11 and 9 years of age.We were so excited at the very thought of the verdant states of Assam,Meghalay and Arunachal that was on our minds.My daughter contacted Greener Pastures and Vaivah was the right choice.Inspite of our diverse age group of Senior Citizens,young adults and children, he could tailor make our tour;Vaivah co-ordinated with our vehicle drivers and saw to our comfort throughout the trip.His choice of our guide was also good in the way that he was patient and took pains to answer all our questions on the 3 states ,took us through the diversity of cultures,the unifying factors and the highlights.Vaivah was always available on call and so we didn’t feel insecure in spite of the many warnings some of our acquaintances had given about the security aspects in remote areas.
We travelled to Daporijo, Aalo in Arunachal Pradesh which were quite interior.Itanagar and Ziro were surprisingly well equipped with informative Museums and we loved the Rice Fields;we could participate in the rice seedling planting;Meghalay was no doubt THE BEST!Shillong ,of course was the icing on the cake and we loved our 3 days stay there.The crossing of the Brahmaputra into Assam was a once in a lifetime experience which we loved.Assam was also a pleasant surprise .We loved the shopping;Dibrugarh,the Tea City of India, had lovely experiences for us.We loved our stay in Dibrugarh Club;It was homely,hygienic and luxurious, a very unique combination.Our drivers were so skilled that inspite of the rains,slippery, mountainous terrain and sudden landslides,could navigate us safely and comfortably,so much so we could enjoy the sudden waterfalls that dotted the entire route, cascading effortlessly down the slopes, the never ending wild bananas and the tropical forest landscape.
Now, when we go over the entire set of photographs, we realise the enormity of efforts Vaivah would have taken to have enabled a safe and enjoyable holiday,inspite of the rains and tricky roads.We have a BIG THANK YOU to VAIVAH and greener pastures.
Hi Gowri. Thanks so much for this feedback on your trip with us. I am so glad you and your family have great memories of northeast India. The region is surely very beautiful and we hope to do our best in keeping it preserved. We also hope to see you guys again and go back with further memorable experiences of new exotic places. 🙂
Vaivhav and team.
