The land where the sun rises first in India, Arunachal Pradesh is a border state in the far north-eastern region. Though the state is abundantly gifted in terms of natural beauty, resources and cultural heritage, it has largely remained untouched by tourists. A sizable tribal population inhibits Arunachal Pradesh, some friendly, some not-so-welcoming, which is the reason travellers need special permission to visit many areas of this region. Arunachal Pradesh is a part of the ‘seven sisters’ of the north-east and shares its borders with China, Myanmar and Bhutan. Arunachal Pradesh boasts of an enviable biodiversity and geographical diversity. Lush green valleys, river-fed plains, inaccessible mountains, mysterious lakes, colourful local festivals and amazing weather together make Arunachal Pradesh a perfect travel destination.
