Arunachal-The Ultimate Experience And The Perfect Getaway!
Paradise exists! Yes, it does, in Arunachal Pradesh, in the far Northeast of India. A land as yet largely unexplored, and completely unspoiled. 84,000 square kilometers of spectacular terrain, less than a million people. From high Himalaya to verdant valley, white capped mountain to steamy jungle, it’s all there. Arunachal borders three countries- Bhutan, Myanmar and China. It is a land where civilizations have met, where peoples and cultures have mingled. Over a hundred tribes, thirty languages, a treasure trove of flora and fauna, this is indeed the last frontier. Abor Country Travels & Expeditions offers you an unparalleled opportunity to journey to this fascinating region.
Top Places To Visit In Arunachal Pradesh
What would you like to see and do? Would you wish to concentrate on the profusion of bird life-over five hundred species? The four hundred and fifty varieties of orchids? The hundreds of butterflies, many rare? Would you seek out the big cats-tigers and leopards, clouded or spotted? Go after the red panda, the takin, or the Himalayan black bear?
Do rivers fascinate you? Travel along the Siang, transformed from the Tsangpo of Tibet, and destined to become the mighty Brahmaputra, the son of god. Spend an evening on the banks of the turbulent Lohit, as it rumbles down to the plains. Laugh along with gurgling brooks, cross their bigger cousins on swaying cane suspension bridges.
Would you want to trek in the Mishmi hills, where there are a thousand and more shades of green? Or on the snowy heights of Dibang, where earth meets sky? Does river rafting enthrall you? Take on the challenge of rafting down the Siang.
Are you a ‘people person’? Arunachal is a kaleidoscope of cultures, a hundred and more tribes, each is distinctive, their way of life insulated till recently by the region’s inaccessibility.
Is it tranquility that you seek? Would you travel up to the Tawang, steeped in Buddhist tradition, and dotted with monasteries? To Subansiri, amidst the Apa Tani tribe, to savour the solitude of space, the comfort of community
