Until a few years ago, only Tawang and Ziro were famous tourist destinations in Arunachal, and even these areas were not fully documented. Around 7-8 years ago Mechuka started getting famous. Around 3-4 years ago unheard-of places like Basar, Dong, Dambuk, Pangsau Pass, Namsai, etc started achieving fame through planned promotional activities and tourism festivals. Barely a year ago, the Seven Lakes Trek of Anini became a rage as high-resolution photographs of this pristine region finally made it to social media. Apart from the general sightseeing, many other activities such as birding and wildlife, trekking, river rafting, biking, cycling, paragliding, ethnocultural explorations, rural tourism, etc. have gradually come up of late.
This book intends to be the ideal travel companion for such 21st-century backpackers. I self-published it with print on demand model & went for colour print. So, the paperback prices are a bit higher than I would have liked myself. Anyway, there’s the eBook version for those who need it.
