Adventure trips by OK North East

The team behind OK! North East believes that it is not a company but a child who is going to build a world of sustainability, a world of helping hands and smiling faces and a world of peace and tranquility. The idea started sometime in 2008 to preserve the nature and the age old traditions of North-East India as well as helping backpackers and tourists travel across North-east like a local.
With that in mind, the team started the first page on Facebook dedicated to the North-eastern region of India. The page kept growing while continue to give information about the culture, people and the amazing facts of the North-east. In 2017, few like minded people, who left their corporate jobs, joined hands to form a group which dedicatedly nurtured the ideologies of the child called OK! North East.
The team travelled extensively through different states of the North-east to understand the biodiversity, ecosystem, as well as different culture and behavior of each place. They connected with the farmers, potters, hunters other people with different occupations and made them aware of preserving the nature and cleanliness. The team also taught them about agrotourism and the benefits of keeping the nature as it is while finding other sources of income which would eventually be more beneficial than destroying the nature for money. Soon, the team started working on different projects which involved homestays, travellers hostels, farm-stays and campsites in not-very-well-known to unexplored, untouched places.

The OK! North East team is presently engaged in different activities in Arunachal Pradesh, Assam and Meghalaya. The team is working on creating farm-stays in rural areas for tourists and travellers by adopting villages. The team is regularly organising soft skill and life-skill training sessions for the locals as well as different events especially designed for farmers to showcase their products to the tourists. Apart from that, they are also helping out housewives mainly in the urban areas to set up homestay rooms and guesthouses within their boundaries for backpackers and budget travellers.
The team has taken up special tour projects for adventure lovers and people who are looking for a relaxing time away from the daily routine.
Some of the destinations the company is working on extensively are Shergaon and Doimara in Arunachal, Pobitora and Kaziranga in Assam and Umsning and Nongsder in Meghalaya.
The main motto of OK! North East is to allow a visitor to ‘live like a local’.
