Arunachal Pradesh


Itanagar Bomdila Namdapha National Park

Right at the top of north-eastern India, crowning its six clustered sisters like a protective helmet, is Arunachal Pradesh, the 'Land of the Dawn-lit-Mountains.' This is the first Indian soil to greet the morning sun. Dawn first illuminates Arunachal's border with China: a long border which stretches all the way from its east, over to its northern boundaries and down to its north- western edge where it merges with Tibet. To its west is Bhutan and on its southern end it touches Assam, Nagaland and Burma before sweeping up to China. 

The people of Arunachal are the greatest attraction of this beautiful land. And even in the capital at Itanagar, the visitor comes across Nishi warriors wearing their 'bopiah' hornbill caps, carrying their 'chokh' bearskin bags with their 'oyjo' knives in their monkey-skin 'burkhey' scabbards. But the visitor should not be misled by their appearance. As a community's level of civilizations is judged by its health, its urge to fulfill its social responsibilities and its emotional stability, the tribal of Raunchily Pradesh are highly civilized.

Places of Interest 

Itanagar 

The capital of Arunachal Pradesh is actually two twin towns. Naharlagan the older town, is said to have been born in 1973, and Itanagar, the official capital came up later. Though most of the administrative offices are located in Itanagar, there are some offices like the Govt. of India tourist office, in Naharlagam also. The twin town presents a very picturesque aspect and combines the old with the modern.

The Buddhist Temple 
A new, but beautiful, yellow-roofed shrine, it rises in well-maintained grounds behind a stupa bearing the portrait of a monk. At one side is a tree planted by His Holiness the Dalai Lama. The grounds of the temple afford a good view of Itanagar town. 

Ganga Sekhi Lake 
The 6 km drive to the lake from Itanagar takes visitors on a rugged road through some superbly primeval jungles: bamboo, orchids massed on tall trees, tree-ferns are some of the vegetation which can be identified by the interested traveler. Stopping at the base of a hill, one has to cross a bamboo bridge floored with a bamboo mat spanning a culvert. This leads to a flight of steps cut into the red clay of the hill. At the top of the ridge one looks down at a serene, green forest lake, which one can cross in a rowboat. A beautiful picnic spot. Go To Top
