Just as the Eastern Himayas are known for its rich biodiversity and wildlife, they are equally celebrated for its diverse people and their cultures. With more than 40 languages spoken here, the region is home to a mosaic of cultures and faiths - Buddhists, Hindus, Christians, and animists - all of whom have lived closely with nature for centuries. Many of these communities live in isolation, and as a result, their custom, lifelstyle and livelihoods have been shaped by their environment.
