Central Arunachal Pradesh


Arunachal Pradesh is the easternmost state of India and has a distinct character. It shares an international border on all three sides, except the south where Assam and Nagaland are its neighbours. Literally translating to ‘Land of the Dawn-Lit Mountains’, Arunachal witnesses the first rays of sun in India.

Like most other states in the northeast, the demographic of Arunachal is dominated by numerous tribes. It is believed to be the home to at least 26 indigenous tribes.

The topography of Arunachal is consistently green with high plateaus and deep valleys. The easternmost stretch of the Himalayas makes an appearance. Western Arunachal—Tawang and West Kameng districts—is the recipient of the mighty snowcapped mountains, with dramatic Buddhist settlements and architecture jutting out from its panorama. Central Arunachal is renowned for its terraced and agrarian landscapes of Ziro, and deep forested valleys of Siang and Subansiri rivers. On the other hand, the shades change rapidly as we move to east Arunachal. With abundant national parks, this can be touted as one of the most biodiverse pockets in the state.

All-in-all, every journey in Arunachal Pradesh is unique and memorable.

Departing from Assam’s Dibrugarh town, we start our central Arunachal exploration with Pasighat in East Siang District. Often referred to as ‘Gateway of Arunachal Pradesh’, in Pasighat we will witness the war dance performance by the Adi tribals in Ranaghat.

We will drive onwards to Aalo (or Along) and Mechuka but not before a thrilling adventure. Get ready to kayak on River Siang’s rapids. The river is a sought-after destination for river rafting and angling. Once in Mechuka—only 29 kilometres away from the MacMahon Line which divides India and China—prepare to interact with fascinating Memba tribals. Here you will also visit a farm where Mithun and Jersey are cross-bred.

As our trail takes us onwards to Basar, Daporijo and finally Ziro, the journey becomes a confluence of cultures. Here we will also stop at Kile Pakho for dramatic views of the valley’s rice fields and snow peaks on the other side. We will stop en route to try angling in River Subansiri.

Meghna Cave Temple is a tourist attraction for its natural contours and legends. This cave temple is dedicated to Lord Shiva and is believed to have existed for more than 5000 years. We will conclude our central Arunachal exploration by meeting the friendly Apatani tribe.

This Arunachal adventure is meant to give an insight to every thing that the state has to offer.
