India’s wildest and least explored state, Arunachal Pradesh (literally the ‘land of dawn-lit mountains’) rises abruptly from the Assam plains as a mass of densely forested and impossibly steep hills, culminating in snowcapped peaks along the Tibetan border. This cycle tour of Arunachal Pradesh takes you to the far east of the state close to its border with Myanmar. This is where the major tributaries of the Brahmaputra River come together, and hence the Brahmaputra Valley is born.

Surrounded by the Himalayas and the Patkai Range on three sides, and the Brahmaputra Valley on the other, you can expect breathtaking scenery throughout your journey here. The people in this region have distinct Mongoloid features, with each tribe enjoying their own unique language, food, textile pattern, headgear, and overall lifestyle. Although there are 26 major tribes, with over 100 sub-tribes and clans that speak some 50 odd dialects, they are a tight knit society and have a nonchalant ease in and around the forests. Arunachal Pradesh is perhaps the last sanctuary for India’s natural and anthropological heritage.

As followers of Theravada Buddhism, even to this day, their village life revolves around the local Buddhist temples. The Khamti migrated here from northwestern Myanmar about 500 to 600 years back.
