Western 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. Come with us to travel to this lesser explored state of India.

Get ready for an experiential journey on Arunachal’s Buddhist circuit. On this overlanding experience, we will encompass the best of western Arunachal.

We will depart from Guwahati in Assam for Nameri National Park, which is on the border of the two states. Driving northwards, we will come across the famous town of Bomdila. This town is nestled on the foothills of the eastern Himalayas. Bomdila is spoilt with many trekking options, though many tourists flock here to marvel at the Buddhist monasteries.

Before we reach Tawang, we will stop at Dirang for an overnight stay, by River Kameng.

The picturesque town of Tawang is located at 3048 metres and is one of the most scenic towns of western Arunachal. Wrapped in spirituality and spoilt with Buddhist monasteries, this town is frequented by tourists and trekkers from around the world. We will visit Urgelling Gompa which is the birthplace of the 6th Dalai Lama’s in and head to the beautiful Sangestar Tso Lake (also called Madhuri Lake) which is near the Indo-China border. No visit to Tawang is complete without a visit to the sacred Tawang Taktshang Monastery. Perched on a cliff and surrounded by dense forests, this monastery dates back to the 8th century.

If we are lucky, we may spot some rare wild animals in Zemithang like the red panda, barking deer and black-necked cranes, when in season.

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