North East India : Meghalaya, Assam, Manipur

Hello,
Has any one of you recently gone through North East India? We have obtained our permits for Sikkim and are wondering if we still need special permits for Meghalaya, Assam and Sikkim.
Thanks a lot
Guillaume

We were there last nov/dec 2012. Only needed the permit for northern Sikkim which was easy. Nothing required for Assam (baaad road) & Meghalaya which is fantastic. Don't miss the root bridges. Can't speak to Manipur tho, didnt make it there. Enjoy!

Sikkim permit

Hi All,

Can you tell me how to go about getting a permit for Sikkim? I'm hoping to head there in the next couple of weeks once I clear customs at Kolkata (after shipping from KL)

Cheers

Jonny

Yep you get it in Rangpo if memory serves. Just head up that way and there will be a big ornate arch & checkpoint. There is an office you can get the permit. I think it's also possible to get it at a tourism office in Kalimpong but they were closed. After we got it I don't think anyone bothered to check it...

Brilliant. Cheers for that.

Any recommendations for the area? How long do you think it would take to drive up to the area from Kolkata? Is the road reasonable?
