Nature's Cradle

  Nocte and Namphake, India

In this journey, we take you to nature’s lesser-known secrets of Northeast India: Nocte and Namphake. Rich with biodiversity, the place is a treat to nature lovers. Traditional chang-ghars and roofs made of dry toko leaves adorn the village. We will camp in nature’s lap here and explore the nearby hills while immersing in the unique culture of the region with the Tai Phake Buddhist community and Nocte Naga tribe. Many other communities like The Tea Tribe, Ahom and Kachari live here as well. These colorful cultures live here together harmoniously with community living and practices and unique traditional ritualistic practices. The nearby region also houses a rainforest with world’s highest number of cat species recorded. A variety of orchids adorn the places and during this time, golden paddy would be visible everywhere. We will immerse in traditional practices of the local people and end the journey by hosting a unique community festival as a memorable imprint of our time here.
