Agartala the capital of Tripura is arguably one of the most diversely populated cities of India. Tripura has always been a home to various mixes of tribes and all these tribal amalgamation has led to an influx of people representing their own clan. Agartala, with its verdant forest cover, near perfect green backdrop, great tourist sites and laid back attitude presents a sight of an ideal tourist destination. The rich and varied tribal culture thriving on the high mountains and vast and alluring green valley adds its own charm to the attraction of the state.
Propelled into limelight after Maharaja Krishna Manikya shifted the state capital here in the 19th century, Agartala is not only forests, hills, lakes and wildlife sanctuaries. This city presents life in a totally distinctive way, very unlike the life we in our so called big cities endure. Replete with religious and historical monuments directly involving great personalities like Gurudev Ravindranath Tagore, Agartala presents a new-fangled aspect of tourism to the visitors for exploration. Located at an altitude of 3,600 ft above the sea level is the highest peak of Agartala region, Beltingchhip (32 km from Vanghmun).
