ARUNACHAL PRADESH

Arunachal Pradesh, unspoilt, green and safe lies in India's North East bordering China (Tibet), Bhutan and Myanmar. Arunachal Pradesh offers a broad spectrum of interests from snow-capped mountains, free flowing streams and rivers to tribal people with their customs still living in their traditional villages to rich flora and fauna that has started attracting tourists from all over the world.

Jungle Travels offers exciting package tours covering Trekking to Gorichen base and Banganjang wildlife viewing, jeep safaris through hill tracks and tribal villages, angling and sightseeing of Tawang, Ziro and other places of tourist interest.

BEST TIME TO VlSlT

Mid September to mid December, then again, from mid March to mid June is considered the best time to visit Arunachal for trekking when the sky is clear and the cold weather is bearable. December, January and February months are bitter cold months when upper regions of Arunachal are under heavy snow and temperatures below minus zero degree.

HOW TO REACH

Guwahati is the gateway to the North East including Arunachal Pradesh. Guwahati is well connected by train and air both from Delhi and Calcutta. Jungle Travels head office is located in Guwahati and Itanagar in Arunachal Pradesh Jungle Travels staff will meet you on arrival and arrange transfer to your destination.
