Arunachal Pradesh

Arunachal Pradesh, North east India's remotest state, also known as 'Land of the Dawn-lit-Mountains'  is the first Indian soil to greet the morning sun. Arunachal Pradesh is the northeastern tip of India with its borders touching China, Bhutan and Burma (Myanmar). Towards the south is Assam and Nagaland. Arunachal offers a dazzling array of flora and fauna that is sure to enchant any tourist. The state is proud of having more than 500 rare species of Orchids.

Arunachal Pradesh's mysterious, powerful and beautiful rivers with faces and moods that change dramatically ever so often form the colorful lifelines. These are ideal for rafting and angling and the rugged terrain is ideal for trekking, hiking and holidaying in a serene atmosphere. River Rafting routes include Kameng (Seppa- Bhalukpung), Subansiri (Taliha- North of Daporijo), Siang (entire course), Dibang (Anini- Assam Border). 

May and October are the best time for trekkers. Bomdila- Tawang area is the most interesting choice for trekking especially around the Tawang Chu. The trek starts from Jong, located between Se- la and Tawang, to Mago amidst forests studded with waterfalls.  Besides the World's second highest pass, the Se la Pass through a high altitude lake is located here. The sixth Dalai Lama was born in the soil of Arunachal Pradesh and the 13th found refuge and safety here. 

The main destinations of Arunachal Pradesh is Tawang, Bomdila, Tipi, Itanagar, Ziro, Daporijo, Along, Mechuka, Pasighat, Roing, Anini, Tezu, Hayuliang, Parsuramkund, Namsai, Miao and Changlang. 


The climate of Arunachal Pradesh varies with the altitude. The southern part of the state has hot and humid sub-tropical climate. The central region is cooler while there is alpine climate in the higher altitudes. Rainfall is uneven and continues throughout the year. The wettest periods are the months from May to September.  Mid September to mid December and mid March to mid June is considered the best time to visit Arunachal when the sky is clear and the cold weather is bearable.
