Far Northeast India Photos, Group One

    The Far Northeast region or India is an area where many westerners do not often go to, or are not always able to visit due to permit restrictions. Plus, merely going as a tourist will not give a person the opportunity to interact with many of the tribes or indigenous people that I was able to visit. So many of these photographs are somewhat rare for a foreigner to take. However, traveling with friends and knowing the culture as I do helped break through the barriers to allow me to have these extra experiences that I can now share on my web site. However, these are only a few of the hundreds of photos that I took.
