Hey friends, here is a description of my super awesome trip to West Arunachal. A trip in which apart from flight bookings and hotels at Guwahati and an e ILP for 10 days, Nothing was preplanned. Just a rough route in head existed.:)
Day 1 & 2:
After an evening flight to Guwahati, I first went to ISBT even before getting to hotel to enquire about the Bomdila bus for the next day. Just got to know to come early,and look for APST bus near the exit gate. There will be private bus dalals here, didn't give in to them, I always prefer government buses for my tough terrain trips. Post which i reached hotel and got prepared for the trip to come and reached ISBT early around 4 am the next day. Found 2 APST buses with no destination displayed. And just waited in the ISBT, periodically checking the buses movement. The early morning incessant rain was not helping in this. Around 6, i saw the driver approaching towards the older of the 2 buses, the white one in fact is the one for Bomdila. The bus started in some time and i found a group of 4 people, as well as an army guy and started talking to them. I was in full spirits and the atmosphere was quite energetic, never mind the old bus , in an almost sorry state. The twists and turns awaited.
