Tribal Tours through Operators
One of the greatest attractions of the Northeast is the fascinating mix of tribal groups who have retained intact their traditional culture despite pressures from outside. The tribes, mostly originating from Tibet to the north and Burma and Thailand to the east, are a major feature of Purvi Discovery programmes. Our trained anthropologists will take you into some of these communities and let you experience for yourselves the traditional way of life of these friendly people. We will let you spend time with individual families, who will welcome you into their homes, not just treat you as a tourist who stops for a short time and then leaves for another photo opportunity.
What you can be sure of is that we will ensure that our activities within communities directly benefit these communities without, in any way, compromising their cultural integrity. Our guests take away with them a lasting bond with the community and their "family" in particular. Whether they take photos or handicrafts or simply memories, the trip will be one of the highlights of their stay in the Northeast.
