    From crystal blue water to endless luxuriant greenery and from unexplored, undulating hill ranges to mouthwatering delicacies – Northeast India is a treasure trove of scenic beauty.

    To help you explore the Northeast, keeping aside the worries of lining up the itinerary and bookings, the Indian Railway Catering and Tourism Corporation (IRCTC) has introduced an interesting tour package. For the first time ever, the Indian Railways is offering tour packages to Northeastern(NE) states of Assam, Meghalaya, Nagaland, Manipur, Mizoram and Arunachal Pradesh on Royal Enfield motorcycles.

    While the motorbike tour package to Meghalaya will be available between July-September, in Manipur, Nagaland and Mizoram, it will be available from August. A daily trip across the Guwahati city is also available for the tourists. Keeping in view of the famous Hornbill festival, the IRCTC is offering motorbike trips to Nagaland in the month of November as well.Advertisement
