Tour Details

Known as the “land of the dawn-lit mountains”, Arunachal Pradesh – is a treasure trove of natural beauty, rich cultural diversity, and ancient heritage. From picturesque mountains, unexplored passes, tranquil lakes, and mesmerizing valleys; to peaceful monasteries, lush farmlands, dense forests and remote villages, the state has it all. It is known to be one of the richest biodiversity and heritage hotspots across the world.

But it is not just the natural beauty that makes Arunachal unique. It is extremely important from a geographical and political stand point as it shares a border with three of our neighbours – China Myanmar, and Bhutan. Culturally, it has the highest number of regional languages being used in any state in India and also presents an interesting overlay of Buddhism with the tribal way of life.

You’d also come across the “the abode of clouds” on the back-end of the trip. With the thrilling state-capital Shillong and the relentless rain-receiver Cherrapunji on the list, Meghalaya is sure to leave all your senses baffled.

However, since the North-East isn’t the most popular destination on the tourist circuit, options for accommodation and eateries are somewhat limited. Planning in advance is essential to make the most of your trip. So, I’ve put together a 10-day itinerary covering some of the more popular and must-visit places in these two states. Pack your bags and hop in with us in an offbeat tourist paradise to the exotic north-east.
