Due to the state’s eastern most location on the map, Arunachal Pradesh is also known as the ‘land of the dawn-lit mountains.’ Arunachal Pradesh tourism is all about dense forests teeming with wildlife and rich ancient cultures. The variations in the climatic conditions throughout the state results in a variety of landscapes and forests that support one of the largest Bio-diversity on the Planet. To add to its diversity in landscape and topography, nine rivers flow through the state including the mighty Brahmaputra. Each of these rivers form valleys which remain detached from the main land and outer world. Arunachal Pradesh is known for its Tribal culture and population. There are around 26 tribes that live in the state that trace their origin back to Mongolia and South East Asia. The remoteness of these areas and the lack of accessibility to the main land, the cultural heritage of the indigenous people are preserved till date. Covering vast distances on foot just to get their daily supplies is a part and parcel of the villager’s lives. Different tribes have different sources of incomes. Some take part in trading while some weave some of the finest rugs and specialise in wood paintings. Some tribes are experts in animal rearing. With all the natural and cultural diversities, Arunachal Pradesh is an entirely different world of its own.
