About Lohit

Why travel to Lohit Valley?Previously known as Mishmi Hills, Lohit derived its name from the Sanskrit word Louhitya translating to red, and was also influenced by the Lohit River, whose rust-tinted waters, and the district's somewhat red mountains run from the north to the south of the valley. A southward extension of the Great Himalayas, the sun-doused valley is quite literally the northeastern tip of India, and Tezu, Chowkham, Namsai and Lekang are the constituencies that throng Lohit.A brief lay of the landGeographically speaking, Lohit is interspersed with the flood plains of Brahmaputra tributaries, snow-capped mountains, and the lower Himalayan and Shivalik ranges. And as we scour through the timeline of this valley's past, in the 19th century, it was one of the last territories to be conquered by the British Raj. In 1980, Dibang Valley was separated from Lohit, and 2004 saw a district bordering Tibet and Myanmar, and going by the name of Anjaw, being carved out of northern Lohit.
