The enigma called Arunachal

Arunachal is a state that yields curiosity and expectation. Many of us know that it has largely unspoilt eco-regions, unparalleled biodiversity and untouched mountainous terrain ; all of which is true. The thing is , we are very fortunate that a region like Arunachal “still” exists in a country of a billion , and we need to protect the region. Let us not spoil it , let us explore.

Let us trek Arunachal if and only if we strive to be a true sport in the game of trekking. Be responsible, proactive , caring. Anything less will not do.

Contact us with your ideas to maintain sustainable trekking with zero (read nominal) effect on the ecology of areas as virgin as this.

Below are a few snaps from a gem of a trek in the region.
