Arunachal Pradesh

Arunachal is the land of the rising sun. Snow clad peaks, towering mountains, roaring rivers, high altitude meadows and vast unspoiled sub-tropical forests sums up this wildest, least explored hilly beauty. In the sense of topography and ethnicity, Arunachal feels like an entire world of its own. Come close to nature. The serene looking Penga Teng Lake with snow capped mountains surrounding it on all sides, offer an interesting trail to walk around. Some good hours of drive takes you to the small town of Dirang. Spectacular landscape and the pleasant weather await you in this beautiful hill station. The high historically and culturally significant Monpa Village houses good number of people from Monpa Tribe. These tribesmen are claimed to be one of the only nomadic tribes of North-Eastern India. Visit the Gentse Gaden Rabgyel Ling Monastery of Bomdila, which is said to be an exact replica of the Tsona Gonste Monastery in the south of Tibet.

Best time to visit October to March

The best time to visit is from October to March. The monsoon is over and leaves its mark with green all around. The valleys of Dibang and Dirang see the best time during the year. Even low altitude areas look pretty in green.

The chilly winter arrives by late November and stays on till the end of February. It does get pretty cold and it snows at higher elevations like Tawang. The skies remain clear and you can get a good view of the snow-clad peaks.

The almost incessant rains arrive by mid-June and it's officially monsoon time. Landslides are pretty common during this time. The mountains play with mist and clouds and is a great time away from the crowded cities.
