Lush green valley with a small stream trickling
On reaching Agartala, our program was to visit Unnakoti the next day. We contacted the hotel for a suitable car to take us there & return on the same day. The hotel could manage a car which was willing to take the round trip. We were told to start early by 6 am . Next day we started at scheduled time. Knowing the uncertainty of having any reasonable hotels, we packed some cakes, biscuits & of course bottled water. The car made way through Agartala & then to a highway. After an hour, we took a break & we took breakfast in a roadside eatery. There are no good hotels all along the route Soon the car took a turn and entered a narrow road. We had to cross 3 hills and the ghat sections of this road had many twists & turns. Some could easily put roads of Kalimpong & Kurseong to shame in terms of the thrill and adventure. Mind it, I was not driving the car but still it was extremely adventurous. The entire journey in this section was amazing. The greenery is something unique. It is unbelievably lush green. Rubber & tea plantation could be seen on a large part of the journey. In patches, where paddy is cultivated, the background hills give a wonderful unique scenic beauty to the place After 4hr & 30 minutes we reached Unnakoti covering a distance of 150 km. The place is un-polluted, with very few people visiting. There are carvings on the rock which are 800 years old. The setting is on a lush green valley with a small stream trickling through. We were amazed & flattened by the setting. We soaked in the ambience for around 1 hour & started for the return journey. We reached Agartala around 5 pm We feel that this place should be at par with Ellora or Diwara temples & is worth taking 9-10 hours of journey. It is indeed remote & quite costly We were charged Rs 4000/- for this trip, which is on the steeper side. I would advise travelers to carry food & water and plan the return in such a way that the hills are crossed when there is daylight Attached are some pictures.

Terrafic place in India
Tripura is a state in Northeast India. The third-smallest state in the country, it covers 10, 491 km2 (4, 051 sq mi) and is bordered by Bangladesh (East Bengal) to the north, south, and west, and the Indian states of Assam and Mizoram to the east. In 2011 the state had 3, 671, 032 residents, constituting. 3% of the country's population. Indigenous communities, known in India as scheduled tribes, form about 30 per cent of Tripura's population. The Kokborok speaking Tripuri people are the major group among 19 tribes and many subtribes. The Bengali people form the ethno-linguistic majority in Tripura The area of modern Tripura was ruled for several centuries by the Tripuri dynasty. It was the independent princely state of the Tripuri Kingdom under the protectorate of the British Empire which was known as Hill Tippera  while the area annexed and ruled directly by British India was known as Tippera District (present Comilla District).  The independent Tripuri Kingdom (or Hill Tippera) joined the newly independent India in 1949. Ethnic strife between the Tripuri people and Bengali population led to tension and scattered violence since its integration into the country of India, but the establishment of an autonomous tribal administrative agency and other strategies have led to peace Tripura lies in a geographically disadvantageous location in India, as only one major highway, the National Highway 44, connects it with the rest of the country. Five mountain rangesâ€”Boromura, Atharamura, Longtharai, Shakhan and Jampui north to south, with intervening valleys; Agartala, the capital, is located on a plain to the west. The state has a tropical savanna climate, and receives seasonal heavy rains from the south west monsoon. Forests cover more than half of the area, in which bamboo and cane tracts are common. Tripura has the highest number of primate species found in any Indian state. Due to its geographical isolation, economic progress in the state is hindered. Poverty and unemployment continue to plague Tripura, which has a limited infrastructure. Most residents are involved in agriculture and allied activities, although the service sector is the largest contributor to the state's gross domestic product Mainstream Indian cultural elements, especially from Bengali culture, coexist with traditional practices of the ethnic groups, such as various dances to celebrate religious occasions, weddings and festivities; the use of locally crafted musical instruments and clothes; and the worship of regional deities. The sculptures at the archaeological sites Unakoti, Pilak and Devtamura provide historical evidence of artistic fusion between organized and tribal religions. The Ujjayanta Palace in Agartala was the former royal

Tripura- A land of unity with all the natural beauties and old culture
Its a land of Natural beauties. Quietly nestled in the lush greenery of hills, verdant valleys and transparent waterscape, Tripura, a land of plentiful myths and legends, beckon tourists from across the globe. This state, home to nineteen indigenous tribal groups, Bengali speaking non-tribals and a diversity of culture, resembles a tiny dot on the peninsular India's map dangling between Northeast India and Bangladesh. But the wealth of Tripura's traditional art, culture, history and archaeology, flora and fauna, biodiversity and flushing meadows always cast a magnetic spell on casual visitors and tourists. The state's rich handicrafts, traditional music, diversity of cultural streams and faiths, coexisting down the annals of history in pristine peace constitute its irresistible charm as a tourist destination. Any visitor or tourist in Tripura can trace the state's glorious history in its archaeological remains, cultural heritage, exquisite sculpture and architecture spread across its landscape and return, richer by a finer aesthetic sense and sensibility.

It was a nice experience to visit the wild greenery of Tripura. Full of natural resources. Nice people. A must visit place. Recommended place: Sipahijala, Trishna Sanctuary. You can also enjoy the driving in hilly way. Neermahal is a must see, which is located at Melagarh, 56 KM distance from capital Agartala. Pilak can be seen for ancient Tripura.
