The meaning of Arunachal Pradesh in Sanskrit is ‘land of the dawn lit mountains’.
It is located in the north eastern tip of India, Arunachal Pradesh is consequently known as the ‘land of the rising sun’. A fraction of the famous Ledo Burma road passes through this state which was a salvation to China during World War II.
Mostly covered by the Himalayas, this state is one of the most meagerly populated states of India covering an area of 83.743 sq.kms. It took on a self governing political status in January 20, 1972, hereby being declared as a Union Territory.
The climate is humid and hot at the lower altitudes as compared to the higher altitudes where it becomes exceptionally cold. Arunachal Pradesh experiences the heaviest rainfall in the country with an average rainfall of more that 350 cm.
This Union territory inhabits 26 tribes and a variety of sub tribes which are culturally similar being derived from original mongoloid stock.
Itanagar is a beautiful place. Its natural beauty is unique. tourists can enjoy a lot by visiting the place. I recommend this place to all for spending holidays.The hanging bridge of Doimukh is a special attraction. The river Dicrong is a river where there was gold long time ago. The river is also rich in many vaeiety of fishes which are rarely found in other rivers. The forts of Itanagar are watchworthy. they have historical background.
Great Place to visit. I like it Very much. Itanagar is the capital of Arunachal Pradesh which is dotted with archeological sites of great historical value. There are also institutions of great socio-cultural significance.
