Mechuka: Instagram Teaser

The Mechuka Trip was not as successful as I’d wanted it to be. It started raining as soon as I reached and my explorations were minimal. I also could not do the actual trek I was hoping to do.  However, even reaching that place was an adventure, due to the remoteness and road conditions. More details will come later. As of now, let me just shamelessly promote my Instagram account by embedding my phone images leading to Mechuka during the last few days.

It started with a marathon train ride. The Gangetic plains were already burning like hell. But the weather changed dramatically as I entered Bengal and the Assam. This is what I was hoping for!

I reached Murkongselek, the last station on that frontier and then entered Arunachal through Pasighat.

Next stop was Along or Aalo. The scenes got better while the roads got worse progressively.

The next part was the long, very long trip to Mechuka that lasted more than 8 hours but had its own rewards.

Four hours and only halfway through… #arunachalpradesh #_soi #northeastindia #_hoi #instatravel #road #indiatravel

So, I leave you with this today. Will be back with proper details soon.
