Spread from 1700 to 2400 m high, the wide-open landscape of the Ziro Valley is an earthly paradise. Lush, pond filled open expanses of paddy and millet are dotted with hills covered in pine and bamboo.
Ziro is home to the tribal group called the Apatanis who are one amongst very few tribes in the world who worship nature (sun & moon). They are famous for their unique methods of sustainable farming and social forestry. Apatani cultural landscape even features in tentative list of UNESCO World Heritage Site for “extremely high productivity” and “unique” way of preserving ecology.
