ARUNACHAL PRADESH TOUR (HILL TREKS & TRIBALS)

Tawang Arunachal PradeshRight 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 Calcutta.

Arunachal Pradesh, a mysterious, magical and mystical land tucked away in the north eastern tip of India is one of the most compelling holiday destinations in India. Arunachal Pradesh offers a broad spectrum of interests from snow-capped mountains, free flowing streams, verdant valleys and rivers to tribal people with their customs still living in their traditional villages to rich flora and fauna that has started attracting tourists from all over the world.

Arunachal Pradesh is Sanskrit for "Land of the Rising Sun".
