The drive route on this Trans Arunachal drive looked to connect Namsai, Hayuliang, Walong, Dong, and Kaho. Five destinations to be covered in a week's time. Before the second wave of covid virus strikes back..
On a sunny morning in April, the Pegasus of our dream trip (here an Indigo flight) took off for Dibrugarh. Having toured the world, this was my first trip to the far east of India.
As we came out of the airport at Dibrugarh, the view outside wasn't what we had thought it be. For in our minds this was supposed to be a place of fairytale rivers and hills. Instead the airport is underoing a revamp and scattered concrete somehow made the sun scorching.
A convoy of Mahindra Thars had queued up for this Adventure. And thus began our trip.
As we crossed the bridge on the river Lohit, we official entered Arunachal. There were blue hills very far off almost hazy line and nothing more exciting. It was almost a drive of three hours. In between we had stopped for a tea break in a small shack on the banks of a small river.
