Photography Tour - Part 1
Cultural heritage is something we cannot physically touch, yet which has a major bearing on the way people live. Particularly in a tribal society with no written history, the knowledge carried by the tribe’s members that is inherited from previous generations needs to be protected and preserved.
In this unique tour, we turn to photography in our attempt to record this intangible cultural knowledge as it manifests itself in the customs of North East India’s tribal communities. Our aim is to photograph villagers dressed in their ceremonial attire and to hear their folk tales about the significance of the dress; to document the ribbon of tradition that runs through them all, tradition that can still be traced back to the time before modernizers and missionaries came.

About the Guide
It was a huge stroke of good fortune that I found out about Sange Tsering - The Holiday Scout. Highly knowledgeable about the natural, historical and cultural treasures of Northeast India, well organized and committed to customer satisfaction in his approach, Sange is more than a qualified travel guide.
Given his contagious enthusiasm for discovery, Sange encouraged me to try everything and what started out as a tour quickly became a glorious pursuit of new life experiences which we found and swallowed whole for eleven straight days! Northeast India is a truly mesmerizing region, and I will surely return to travel with The Holiday Scout - the guide makes all the difference."
