Food tells us what grows in the area, and what people prefer depending on the climate of the place. If I have the time, sometimes I try...

Although it has its roots deep in Assamese history, very few people choose to stop at this place to visit. However, it is still the fifth largest as well as the oldest city in Assam. As per records, its earliest ruins run back to the 4th...

It is an essential highlight for the tourist who comes all the way to Tawang for sightseeing. As much as I can...

But I was speeding my way into Shillong and then to deeper parts of Meghalaya. But I quickly realised that Assam is very protective and extremely proud of these...

While it is a lovely small town, it is usually thought more of as a stopover for an overnight stay on the way to Tawang. But there are quite a few places to visit in Dirang. Some of us choose to...

I also wanted to travel in and around Arunachal Pradesh as a whole. However, as I researched and spoke to a few tour operators, I found that it's probably not a great idea to stuff...

Maybe you heard things from someone else about the remote inhabitants of this area that was once a part of the mystical land of Tibet. But most people go after looking at the photo of this 400-year-old gorgeous monastery. Isn’t this...

It is not that common for people to look to travel to someplace as remote as Arunachal. And to tell you honestly, it is pretty hard to reach. Just reaching Tawang takes 3 days and expect the same while returning back. But if...
