Cycling in Arunachal Pradesh is not very popular and this makes it totally an amazing experience where one can experience the unscathed tribal life & civilization, forests and hills and much more. On this route we cross Sella Pass of 4116 meters and explore the monasteries of extreme fame and spiritual wisdom.
Virginal Arunachal Pradesh appears as a giant patch of green on the country’s map. India’s wildest and least explored state, Arunachal (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. Home to 26 indigenous tribes, Arunachal is perhaps the last sanctuary for India’s natural and anthropological heritage. Much of the state remains beyond tourism’s reach, but new areas are slowly being opened to visitors. (Explained by Lonely Planet)
