2. I choose my stay with a campsite, centrally placed in the Ziro Valley that gave me a panaromic view like no other campsite would have.

4. All four days saw some mind-blowing performance and acts by brilliant bands, duos and soloists from not just India but around the world. It was a mixed bag of regional bands with their native language. Having said that, it wasn’t just for the bands originated in India but International artists as well.

6. One of the most beautiful things about the fest was how organically the entire set up was arranged. Bamboo for the win!!! So you ate your meals and drank Apung/Zu Sa out of plates and glasses made of Bamboo.

8. The love and the warmth Apatanis have for their culture was felt through and through when they invited us all to join them from one stage to another stage location in their Daminda dance style.
