It is mapping by you andLet me tell the bitter truth..
Sitting in mainland without any practical knowledge we always decide this part is safe and that part is so called disturbed... which place is safe in this world ??
info by other travellers that can
map peaceful areas and safe passagees too.
even in early 1980s the area was called disturbed.
A cousin went there regularly for business as a marketing Executive.
He travelled in those years with public transport only.
He covered main cities only.
He went out for few months from Delhi after rest of a month in Delhi.
Every alternate month was his target to cover NE.
