Arunachal Pradesh, India

A river of gold flows through this exotic land of dawn-lit mountains and that's only the beginning of the story. Mysterious, powerful and beautiful, with faces and moods that change dramatically ever so often, rivers with distinctive individualities form the colorful lifelines of Arunachal Pradesh-the land kissed by the first rays of the sun. Arunachal Pradesh, earlier known as Northeast Frontier Agency, and largest of the seven sisters of North East India, shares international boundaries with Bhutan, Tibet, China and Myanmar and state boundaries with Assam and Nagaland.

Arunachal Pradesh, whose name means Land of the Dawn-Lit Mountains in Sanskrit, is also known as the Orchid State of India or the Paradise of the Botanists. Geographically, it is the largest among the North-east Indian states commonly known as the Seven Sister States. As in other parts of Northeast India, the people native to the state trace their origins to the Tibeto-Burman people. In recent times, large number of migrants from various parts of India and other lands have built extensive economic and cultural ties with the state's population.

Main Attractions in Arunachal Pradesh


If a paradise isolated from worldly chaos, unmatched charming landscapes, forever joyous people with monks whispering Buddhist chants creating a mystical atmosphere is your thing, then you are welcome to Tawang. Home to the 400-year old monastery, one of the oldest and largest monasteries in India, Tawang is a prominent centre for Gelug or Gelugpa, the Buddhist school in Tibet. Located between Tibet, Bhutan and India, Tawang is highly unexplored and is a discovery in itself once reached.


Ziro is a census town in Lower Subansiri district in the Indian state of Arunachal Pradesh. It has been a favorite town for World Heritage Site for a number of years now. In a meeting of Archaeological Survey of India (ASI) on December 12, 2012 it was shortlisted for inclusion in the Tentative List for further nomination to UNESCO for inscription in the World Heritage Site. The part of the town which is the centre of economic activities and where the administrative offices are located is called as Hapoli or locally known by the Apatanis as "Hao-Polyang".


'Aalo' is a census town and headquarter of the West Siang district of the Indian state of Arunachal Pradesh. It is located about a days drive 220 kilometres from Likabali which is at the border of Assam and Arunachal Pradesh.


Bomdilla is a tiny settlement that is 276 km away from Itanagar, the capital of Arunachal Pradesh. It incorporates a few administrative offices, hotels, local markets and road-side eateries. There are three beautiful monasteries in the small place of Bomdilla, which are Lower Gompa, Middle Gompa and Upper Gompa. The Upper Gompa is a splendid piece of structure and is the most majestic of all. To reach the Upper Gompa, a taxi can be hired which is 4 km by road. Doe-Gu-Khill Guest House and Hotel Tsepal Yangiom are a couple of most famous accommodations that provide amazing views of the town and are lively places to be in.
