I was thinking to write my first blog about Tawang -the land of ice and fire - the land of 108 lakes. Latter i found out why not wrote a blog an informative blog of a place that happens to be in Arunachal Pradesh, but still not so popular as that of Tawang. I know a number of you will be reading about it for the first time. But before you lose your interest, let me tell you about this beautiful holiday place.

After a long tiring journey, we finally reach the camping site.It was 4 pm in the evening. The sun was about to set and the temperature was moderate. The camping site is actually a small rural village.

Reaching there, the only question I had is how can a place be so much beautiful and perfect. From the very first step, all we can see an old country like a village where everything is made of wood and timber, and little muddy roads filled up hens, cows, and Dogs which reminded me some old cartoon network days.

The Camping:

We then went to camping tents. The tents are prebuilt and can be rented. Since we were six people, we booked a luxury tent for 3000 rupees. The tent has one large bed, long sofa along with an attached bathroom.

They also provide food and prices of food are reasonable( 100 Rupees Veg Thali).

Local beverages were also offered by them as complementary.

The Dirang river passes through the camping site. This blue river and green meadows, long mountains, playing arena are really happy pills to everyone's mind.

The Night Life:

Staying in the night was beyond experience. it was one of the best night. Staying under the Deep blue sky enchanted with dimming stars, a bunch of good friends, a glass of Rum and fire to cop up with freezing cold, these things were rarely happening.

Day 2

Next day, At the morning, i woke up early. It was about 4.30 pm and Sun had already been up. Due to the late arriving the day before, we never had time to visit the entire places. So, getting up early add some time for me to wander in the meadows. Being an amateur photographer, I have managed to get some clicks.
