Transportation, which originates from the Latin words trans, whose meaning is across," and portare, which means to carry, emphasizes prominently the occupations of men, advanced civilization, expansion of domestic and international trade, economic growth, etc. The countries whose geography is highly covered with mountains have been heavily affected by the transport network, and the same is true for northeastern mountainous India, where it is impossible to move goods through road transportation. These situations not only harshly affect the residents of such areas but also result in a lack of economic growth, the formation of spatial relationships, and revenue production. As a result of this, there is a need to keep these problematic things in the attention of country residents and their governments, for which a critical analysis is needed through a systematic review that can present a clear concept of transportation and their impact on the economic growth of the regions. Motivated by the same, the present work has been proposed to conduct a review article on transportation, its concept, and its impact on economic development from the perspective of the mountainous region. The work presented in the article will be of great interest to working professionals in this area.
