Sikkim is a melting pot of two different cultures, where traditional monasteries of Tibetan Buddhism and Hindu shrines coexist in absolute harmony. The verdant Himalayan state has fortunately managed to stay away from the deadly virus.

Meghalaya recently saw a big tourism event — The Meghalayan Age — which attracted visitors from all across the country. However, it was still at the time when coronavirus had just entered India. The state was quick to implement preventive measures and travel restrictions in place, which has helped it remain untouched.

3. Nagaland
