Arunachal Pradesh, one of the most sparsely populated states of India, covers an area of 83743 sq. Kms. Being situated in the North-Eastern part of India with 83743 sq. kms area, Arunachal has a long international border with Bhutan to the west (160 km), China to the north and north-east (1,080 km) and Myanmar to the east (440 km). It stretches from snow-capped mountains in the north to the plains of Brahmaputra valley in the south.
Its virgin isolation, due to restricted entry regulations has been a blessing in disguise as Arunachal still retains its centuries old pristine vistas, diverse tribal heritage and unpolluted geographical features.
Strung out along the misty hill tops and deep valleys, Arunachal’s picturesque townships and villages are the first in the land to be kissed by the rays of the morning sun giving Arunachal its unique position as literally ‘the land of the rising sun’.
