Northeast India Wildlife Tour

Northeastern India is often called India's forgotten corner and it was perceived that the remoteness of the place has helped preserve its biodiversity.
India's Northeastern states represents the transitional zone between the Indian, Indo-Malayan and Indo-Chinese biogeographic regions and is the geographical 'gateway' for much of India's flora and fauna. As a consequence, the area is one of the richest in biological values, high in endemism and holds a large number of rare species that are now under serious threat. Hotspots are areas that are extremely rich in species, have high endemism and are under constant threat due to human pressure (having lost 70% of their original habitat). The Northeast is among the 34 Hot Spots of the world, identified in India, the other being the Western Ghats. Northeast India is thus the geographical 'gateway' for much of India's flora and fauna. It is in this lowland-highland transition zone that the highest diversity of biomes or ecological communities can be found, and species diversities within these communities are also extremely high.
Northeast India has 64% of the total geographical area under forest cover and it is often quoted that it continues to be a forest surplus region. North East India is a landscape of lush evergreen forests and grasslands which provides a home to a range of significant species, including Asian elephants, Indian rhinoceros, tigers and leopards.
This region perhaps supports the highest diversity of bird species in the Orient. More than 400 species of birds are recorded from Kaziranga National Park alone in Assam and although not thoroughly explored, the State of Arunachal Pradesh has a record of 665 species of birds. Northeast India is exceptionally rich in freshwater fishes, and it is heartening to note that the region has been extensively surveyed, and accounts for 236 species. From the State of Manipur alone, 167 species of freshwater species belonging to 11 orders, 31 families and 84 genera are recorded. The fish fauna of Loktak Lake in Manipur comprises 64 species.
