Arunachal Pradesh

Arunachal Pradesh – abode to the dawn-lit mountains

Arunachal Pradesh is the largest among the Seven-Sister States of Northeast India. The state is a highly diversified domain in cultural grounds due to the presence of 36 indigenous tribes & nearly 306 sub-tribes in one state alone. The land shares its borders with China, Bhutan & Myanmar. Arunachal is blanketed in alternating layers of snow & thickets that lend it a hauntingly beautiful allure.

The state houses India’s largest monastery at Tawang. A giant effigy of Gautama sits amidst the meticulously hand-painted thankas & elaborately designed pillars and ceilings that offer a stellar demonstration of Tibetan architecture & art. In a place that is swarmed by diverse dialects & unique tribes, being a part of a community festival is an ethereal experience. The Solung Festival, Losar Festival & the Ziro Music Festival are some of the events that cannot be missed. Since it is an inherently blessed Himalayan abode, indulging in a full-blown trekking expedition to the Talle Valley or towards the Sela Lake & Pass is inevitable.

The nearest airports to Arunachal Pradesh are the Guwahati Airport of Assam & the Dibrugarh Airport. The state is also connected to Assam’s capital via road. The Arunachal State Transport ferries buses on a regular basis to Guwahati. Railway connections do not exist. Hence, reserving a ride is the best way to tour through this beautiful province.
