Discover Arunachal Pradesh
The last frontier of India’s tourism, the virginal Arunachal Pradesh comes across as a gigantic patch of the unchartered green on the map of India.
The wildest and definitely the least explored state of the country, Arunachal Pradesh is also known as the Land of Dawn-lit Mountains. It rises precipitously from the plains of the Assam as a large mall of densely forested and fatally steep hills which finally tower off as the snow-capped peaks along the border of Tibet. Arunachal is indeed the last sanctuary for the anthropological and natural heritage of India. It is also a home to 26 primitive tribes. Major section of the state remains beyond the reach of the tourists however there are certain new areas which are gradually being opened for the tourists.
If truth be told, China has never really accepted the Indian dominance here and it did take the surprise invasion of China in the year 1962, for Delhi to actually begin the funding for the major infrastructure here. At present, the border passes are massively hoarded by Indian military and the atmosphere is significantly calm. In comparison to its neighbors, Arunachal has relatively been unharmed by the civil unrest or the political violence. This does not stop the rebels of Naga to continue being active in the north eastern states along the border of Myanmar and Nagaland.
