Storm clouds gather over the Khasi Hills with densely forested slopes and deep gorges near Cherrapunjee, the wettest place on earth. Cherrapunjee is in the state of Meghalaya, north east India.

If the excellent fare -- yes, there's a world beyond momos and thukpa -- and the vibrant music scene are not enough to make you want to visit the northeastern states of India, then maybe a taste, or rather a glimpse, of its stunning natural beauty would.

Chances are that going through this Instagram account will change your mind. There is a lot of beauty to be found in the rugged landscape of the region, with its lush rolling hills and majestic snow-capped mountains, emerald green lakes, misty waterfalls and dense forests. And the Instagram account, simply called northeast india, showcases a set of photos that do justice to the regions rugged and diverse natural features.

It's not just the scenery either. The account also features a rich mix of the local food, trendy fashion and locals in striking traditional costumes, from all seven sister states -- Arunachal Pradesh, Mizoram, Manipur, Nagaland, Meghalaya, Tripura, and Assam. It is enough to make you want to pack your bags and give Goa a miss this year.

Here are some beautiful images that showcase Northeast India at its best.
