TRAVELLER'S KIT

Nestling deep within a lush green corner of Northeast India is the wondrously beautiful little Shangri-La called Manipur. Literally meaning - "a jeweled land" this little corner is a veritable paradise on earth where Mother Nature has been extra generous in her bounty.

Untouched and undiscovered Manipur promises to be the great tourist discovery of the 21st century. An oval shaped valley surrounded by blue green hills, rich in art and tradition has inspired descriptions such as the "Switzerland of the East" with it’s cascading rapids, tripping rivers, carpet of flowers, exotic blooms and lazy lakes.

The people and the tribes of Manipur include Meiteis, Nagas and Kuki-Chin-Mizo groups and other colourful communities, which have lived in complete harmony for centuries. These are the people whose folklore, myths and legends, dances, indigenous games and martial arts, exotic handlooms and handicrafts are invested with the mystique of nature and an indefatigable "joie de vivre". The wonders are never ending, the place is Manipur
