Choosing a roadway will require an inner line Permit to go through Manipur. And to reach your destination, you can either choose a long road transport going through the N.H-53, N.H 39 and N.H 150 connecting with its neighboring states. The roads are great, so you can ride a bike or drive a car while enjoying the greenery surrounding the road. Though I highly don’t recommend a road trip to Manipur during rainy seasons.
