Early riser, Arunachal Pradesh, which translates to “land of the dawn-lit mountains” is also known as the Orchid State of India or the Paradise of the Botanists. This land of the rising sun is the remotest and one of the loveliest regions, yet the most scantily populated state in the entire North East, adding to the allure of this mysterious land.
Its very isolation has been a blessing and boon in many ways, having protected it from the ill affects of overdevelopment and its consequent problems. Tucked away in the north eastern tip of India, Arunachal Pradesh is home to picturesque mountains, unexplored passes, tranquil lakes and famous monasteries.
Arunachal Pradesh borders the states of Assam and Nagaland to the south, and shares international borders with Bhutan in the west, Myanmar in the east and China in the north. Itanagar is the capital of the state. China claims the northern part of the state as a part of the Tibet Autonomous Region.
Arunachal has the thinnest population density in the country with only 13 persons per sq km with 26 major tribes and a number of sub-tribes. Visitors have a host of experiences awaiting them in various fields of interest- Culture, Adventure, Nature, Heritage and Art & Crafts, that serve up a mélange of joyous holiday experiences.
