Tripura Tourism

In the far northeastern corner of India, the sleepy state of Tripura is an idyllic place to travel. Rolling green valleys, dense woods, some picturesque palaces and pristine Buddhist sites would make you forget the worries of daily life as you travel to Tripura.

Tripura is the second smallest state in India. The place traces it past even in the age of the Mahabharata. The popular belief is that the name originates from "Tripura Sundari" - the presiding deity of the land.

Tripura was formerly ruled by Maharajas of Manikya dynasty. With the Independence in 1947, the kingdom merged with India and in 1972 got the statehood.

How to Reach Tripura

Tripura is cast away in the northeastern India. Though small, the state is charmingly beautiful. Tripura, as a sum total of old Buddhist shrines and Hindu temples, wild life habitats replete in exotic flora and fauna and vibrant composition of several tribes, exudes an unexplored charm.

By Air

The main airport of the state is located in Agartala the state capital. Many public and private airlines operate regular flights to and from Agartala. From Kolkata and Guwahati it takes less than 45 minutes to reach Tripura by air. The state has 3 more airports in Khowai, Kamalpur and Kailashahar where small chartered-planes can land easily.

By Road

National Highway No.44 connects Agartala to Guwahati via Shillong in 24 hours. But the location of the state makes it more convenient to reach Tripura from Bangladesh by road.

By Train

Kumarghat is the nearest railhead, which is at a distance of 140 Km. away from Agartala. Kumarghat is linked by railways to Guwahati, which is in turn connected to the rest of the country. One can approach Guwahati from most major railway stations in India.
