ARUNACHAL PRADESH IS THE LARGEST North Eastern state, sharing borders with China and Myanmar. Home to more than 125 tribes. It is also the birthplace of 6th Dalai Lama. Arunachal Pradesh is also known as the orchid state and a paradise to botanists. These evergreen forests include 500 species of orchids and are the habitat of exotic species of birds, insects and animals. People of the state are simple, charming and friendly, who still preserve their traditional crafts and way of life. In addition, spectacular view of snow-capped mountains, terraced paddy field and valleys dotted with waterfalls. Well spent evenings by singing and dancing – every tribe has its own distinct music and culture.

Special permits are still required to visit the state which can be easily obtained from the Indian High Commission in your country. Unusually less than four people are not allowed to travel together. In these remote areas, you will find only basic & occasionally camping facilities only.
