Tripura is located in the northeastern part of the country. It is bordered to the north, west, and south by Bangladesh, to the east by the state of Mizoram, and to the northeast by Assam. It is among the smallest of India’s states and is located in an isolated hilly region of the country, with various indigenous peoples—or tribes—accounting for a significant portion of the population. 

Roughly half of the state’s population belongs officially to Scheduled Castes and Scheduled Tribes. The Tripuri constitute more than half the tribal community. Other prominent tribal groups include the Reang, the Chakma, the Halam (a subgroup of the Kuki), the Garo, the Lusai (Mizo), and the Marma (Mogh); most originally moved to Tripura from various hill regions in neighboring states. 

About half of Tripura’s land area is under forest cover. One of the most notable types of trees of the state’s forests is sal, a valuable tropical hardwood. There also are large tracts of bamboo, some species of which are believed to be endemic to the state.
