JULY 2019
ARUNACHAL PRADESH, INDIA

India’s wildest and unexplored state, Arunachal Pradesh appears as a patch of giant green on the map! Arunachal, meaning Land of Dawn-Lit Mountains, rises beautifully from the plains of Assam with steep & dense forested hills finally ending in snow-capped peaks along the tibetan border. It brings the promise of adventurous journeys to distant mountain valleys and villages and rendezvous with 26 indigenous tribal peoples. 

 

Visiting Arunachal Pradesh is a slow travel experience and we have put together an itinerary that will appeal to a discerning globe-trotter.

Please note that the tourism infrastructure such as hotels or homestays are limited and is yet to reach many areas. Travel to Arunachal is far beyond ant standard tourist trails.
