by Alexander A. Founder
The mighty Himalayas and spectacular views of lush green tea plantations, yes this is what north-east has to offer to its tourists. The seven sisters give a visual treat to the travelers who wish to enjoy the unadulterated beauty of north-east, and one can always plan a quick trip to the splendid hill stations. There are many budget and luxury resorts near Darjeeling and around in competitive prices. For backpackers, the Kanchenjunga and lesser Himalayas can be enjoyable enough to trek and explore, while tea bungalows are ideal destinations for the honeymooners.
Here are the three lesser known places in the north-east that are hidden from the prying eyes of the tourism industry, and are ideal for weekend trips.

Ravangla -

Ravangla is a small hilly town near south Sikkim and not known to many tourists, even who have visited north-east many times. It is an ideal destination to visit this winter as one can enjoy the chilling atmosphere and the astounding landscapes here. One can spend some quite time walking around the forests or visiting the ancient monasteries. Trekkers can take the trekking route to Maenam wildlife sanctuary and enjoy the invigorating smell of magnolia. The forest has some extra-ordinary trees like rhododendron and chestnut oak and home to some nearly-extinct spices like red panda and black bear. Watching sunrise from Ralong is a treat to the eyes. Tourists can stay here in beautiful resorts that offer ample of facilities and decent lunch & dining facilities.

Shillong -

Shillong is called Scotland of the east India, and there are a number of reasons behind it. It has some breathtaking locations with gushing waterfalls and serene lakes, perfect for a romantic escapade. The lush green forests and hilly regions make the place no lesser than a dreamland. One can take a romantic walk around and watch sunrise and sunset here, or enjoy rafting on Umiam lake. Around 12 kms away from Shillong are the elephant falls, which is actually three small waterfalls merged into one. Enjoy the untimely monsoon at the most wettest place of earth here, at Mawsynram. While your stay here, fill your lungs with the earthy smell and sooth your eyes with lush greens.

Sukhia Pokhari -

While going around in Darjeeling, there’s a small spectacular village named Sukhia Pokhari that has some beautiful viewpoints. But the place is popular for the tea bungalows located near the tea estates. One of the most beautiful tea bungalows located there is Chamong Chiabari, the destination known as honeymooner’s paradise. Chamong Chiabari offers some quite moments in the lap of Mt. Kanchenjunga. While their stay here, travelers can enjoy bird watching and trekking around. The bungalow authorities arrange for local dance and song programmers and campfire for the dwellers of this exotic place. Additionally, the tourists can get a taste of authentic local food while their stay here. When in Darjeeling, luxury resorts like tea bungalows are the ideal places to stay and unwind.

So here are the three most exotic locations to keep in the bucket list for the tourists who love to visit north-east and love the exotic locales of the seven sisters.
