Arunachal Pradesh Tours & Travel Guide


Arunachal Pradesh, land of the Dawn-Lit Mountains, is an Indian State that is located in the northern eastern part of the country. Earlier the state was referred to as North-East Frontier Agency. It is commonly acknowledged as the Paradise of the Botanists or the Orchid State of India and is the biggest among the North-east states in the country, which are called the Seven Sister States.

The climate in Arunachal Pradesh varies according to the elevation. The higher-elevated regions near the Tibetan border experience tundra or alpine climate, whereas the lower regions, usually experience temperate climate. Currently Arunachal Pradesh is one among the richest and most varied regions in terms of languages in Asia. It has 30- 50 different languages, including countless sub-languages.

The earliest history documented about this region dates back to 16th century AD, when Ahom rulers of Assam extended their kingdom along these lands. The Ahoms rulers never interfered with the customs and rituals of tribes residing in the extended kingdom. This helped them to maintain their individuality and traditions.  Most of the populations and tribes worship the nature and the mountains for their protection.

Agriculture is the mainstream occupation of the people here. It is also a booming sector for medium to small-scale industries. Arunachal Pradesh has an immense tourism potential, owing to its unrivaled visuals and varied cultural inheritance.

The capital, Itanagar, tells the story of Ita Fort that was built in 14th century by King Ramchandra of Mayapur. Also, Parasuram Kund and Brahma Kund are regarded as sacred places, where pilgrims come to cleanse themselves in the holy water.

Rice is the staple food of the people here. Their diet is healthy as they avoid spices and fried food. The tribes make a nourishing and light drink called ‘apang’ (rice beer).

A rich variety of festivals help people get together and enjoy the common brotherhood and spirit of belonging. The Losar Festival of Monpas indicates the beginning of their new year, which is celebrated for five days. The houses are cleaned and decorated, and Buddhist prayers are offered for good health and prosperity.
