Sneakpeak of NorthEast

My recent vacation to Northeast was the longest, the most rained and the most relaxed one. We had been to Shillong, Cherrapunji, Dowki - The Indo-Bangladesh border, the root bridge near Mawlynnong village, Tinskiya town and nearby villages, Lekhabali in Arunachal, the historical town of Sibsagar and Guwahati. Trip to Khaziranga and Majuli were, unfortunately, rained out, however, as a recompense, we happened to be a part of Bihu festival celebrations in a small village.

Like I had tweeted, I have really huge number of photos to deal with and my life, both professionally and personally, has become very busy. So before I actually start editing my photographs and writing blog posts on individual places/events, I thought of giving a sort of preview with sample photographs of all the places we had been, hope you like it. So here is how northeast looked to me:
