Right at the top of north-eastern India, crowning its six clustered sisters like a protective helmet, is Arunachal Pradesh, the `Land of the Dawn-lit- Mountains.' This is the first Indian soil to greet the morning sun. Dawn first illuminates Arunachal's border with China: a long border which stretches all the way from its east, over to its northern boundaries and down to its north- western edge where it merges with Tibet. To its west is Bhutan and on its southern end it touches Assam, Nagaland and Burma before sweeping up to Calcutta.

Starting at the airport of Tezpur in Assam. The road passes through low wooded slops about 60 kms beyond Tezpur. Anglers or those who want a brief rest should wait till they encounter the broad spread of the Bharali river as it emerges from the mountains into the wooded upper plains. On the banks of the river, at an elevation of 190 meters is Tipi, a glass house with over 7,500 orchids. From here the road is fairly steep as it soars up to the small headquarter of the West Kameng district Bomdila at a height of over 2530 meters. It has a tourist lodge, a Craft centre, Apple orchards and Buddhist Gumphas. There are also views of Himalayan landscapes and Snow clad ranges. Bomdila is a good place to rest over nights.

Itanagar the capital of Naharlagun is enchanting. The people of Itanagar are the greatest attraction of this beautiful land. The Nishi warriors wearing their 'bopiah' hornbill caps, carrying their 'chokh' bearskin bags with their 'oyjo' knives in their monkey-skin 'burkhey' scabbards are worth seeing. Itanagar captures the spirit of this desire to minimize the conflicts that arise when a traditional society is guided into modernity. Traditional huts are scattered amongst the more recent constructions and between them lie the administrative offices, shops, the bazaar and thatched huts. It's all very low-profile and unassuming and even the most diffident tribal from the remotest village is unlikely to feel uneasy when he comes to the capital. Itanagar has been identified with Mayapur, the capital of the 11th century AD JItri dynasty.
