Package Overview

This short tour is a delightful experience covering the quaint valley of Ziro, a scenic landscape hidden in the eastern Himalayas of Arunachal Pradesh. The valley is known throughout the world for the rich indigenous culture of the Apatani tribespeople who live here and for the fish-cum-rice cultivation which is practiced in the terraced farms of the valley. Though they have lived in the remote valley and co-inhabited their surroundings with primitive tribes, the Apatanis evolved with brilliant scientific advances that reflect their means of well sustainable living and good use of natural resources. The Apatanis are also friendly by nature as compared to their fierce neighboring tribes. In this tour, you will get to meet and interact with the Apatani people, opening a doorway into the lives of one of India’s most fascinating tribe. Living in the homestays with local families is an excellent opportunity to learn about the ways of the locals. Most village elders are tattooed in traditional patterns, and their unique features stand as a reminder to the old days when the region had no roads and tribes reigned in all their savage glory. Apart from the cultural exchange, one can also explore the surrounding mountains by enjoying short hikes through the bamboo and pine plantations. A perfect short trip apt for an elongated weekend, where you can escape to a hidden valley filled with serene landscape and warm hospitality.
