All about the Cultural tour Ziro DapriojoAloo and pasighat / Bori booth Festival and wild Life Assam Nagaland Tour

Tucked away in the far north-east of India, wedged between the borders of Bhutan, Burma and Tibet, Arunachal Pradesh is India’s newest and least-known state. Before the region was elevated to statehood in 1986, Arunachal Pradesh, along with Assam, Nagaland and 4 other states was known as the North-East Frontier Agency (NEFA). Except for occasional forays by administrators and anthropologists during the time of the British, nothing much was known about this area for most of the 20th century. The isolation of the North East Frontier Agency was legally safeguarded by India's own government; before laws permitting limited tourism were passed in 1995, even Indian citizens were not allowed to visit.   The North East Frontier Agency lands never belonged to ancient India. They were, and still are, peopled by Mongoloid and Mon-Khmer austere stock, far removed from Aryan-Dravidian blood of the mainstream. The people here are animists (except the area of Tawang where they accepted Buddhism); in the Highlands, wild Burmese tribes enthusiastically practiced indiscriminate headhunting until as late as the fifties. To the north, Mongoloid tribals, bare-bodied in breech-clouts, are today still encountering “civilization".   Nagaland is almost entirely inhabited by 16 groups of Tibeto-Burmese tribes. Among them are Angamis, Aos, Konyaks, Kukis, Lothas, Semas and Wanchus.   The Nagas, who were once head hunters, have been known for their fierceness and the regular raids they made on Assam and Burma.  The warring tribes believed that since the enemy’s animated soul, waha, was to be found at the nape of the neck, it could only be set free once beheaded.  However, since the spritual soul, mio, resided in the head and brought good fortune, enemy heads (and those of dead comrades) were prized as they could add to a community’s own store of dead ancestors.   The hilltop villages are protected by stone walls.  The morung, a meeting house, acts as a boy’s dormitory, and is used for storing weapons and once displayed the prizes of war i.e. the enemy heads.  The huge sacred drum, which stands by each morung is hallowed out tree trunk carved to resemble a buffalo head.

  15. Day 6 6/2/2018 TO2020 : Ziro

    Using Ziro as a base, the entire 02 days are spent visiting the Hong and other Apatani Villages.  Everywhere we go we are warmly welcomed. As E.T. Dalton noted in 1845, “The men do not rejoice in much drapery, they wear a girdle of canework painted red which hangs behind in long bushy tail.”  Just as the tail is the distinctive part of the male dress, so is the nose plug peculiar to the Apatani women. It is the ambition of each woman to wear the largest possible nose plugs, which are made of wood.  Both sexes extensively tattoo their faces. Each sect has distinctive features. Their hats, clothes, ornaments, language and even physical features are totally different.

  16. Day 7 7/2/ 2018 TO 2020 : Ziro – Doporijo

    Departing early in the morning, we descend from the Ziro plateau and drive along the Kamla River valley through dense jungle country, passing picturesque villages of Nishis and the Hill Miris tribes.  We’ll visit MuriMugli, a Hill Miris tribe, and if road conditions are good we will continue another eight miles on a mountain dirt road to Noori, a small traditional village of the same people.  The Ghansi sect of the Miris that we encounter here are of short stature, scantily dressed with a sleeveless jacket and loincloths.  They will usually carry woven cane knapsacks and a dao (broad sword) along with bow and arrows.  The Panibotias, another sect of the Miris that we will meet, are just the opposite: tall, well-built people.  Continue driving to Daporijo on the banks of the SubansiriRiver . Daporijo is the junction of three important tribes; Hill Miris, Tagins and Adi-Gallongs. 

  17. Day 8 8/2/2018TO2020 Doporijo

    Doporijo – Along early morning visit Lida village of Adi-Gallong tribes.  A short twelve-mile drive  brings us to Tajipara, another Adi-Gallong tribal village.  Adis are ery accomplished weavers of cane goods.  They make baskets, hats, breastplates, shield, but the excellence of their cane work shines supreme in the famous cane suspension bridges of Arunachal Pradesh.  “Marvels of untutored engineering skills,” was how a 19th-century British explorer described the bridges.  The Adis also excel at weaving intricate patterns for their clothing, and we may see examples of their pottery today.

  18. Day 9 9/2/2018 TO 2020 Along – Pasighat

    Drive to Lower and Upper Bari village.  On the way cross the river Yamgo.  From here  hike for one hour to Mobuk village which sits pretty on a saddle.  Also visit Monku village.  We will also organize cultural evening in the village here.    We drive back towards Along before heading east to reach the Brahmaputra River Valley.  We continue to drive on a military road downriver to Pasighat.  Pasighat is a fairly big town on the banks of the Brahmaputra.  Here the mighty river exits the mountains to empty onto the Assam plains.  From being a few hundred feet wide, it suddenly grows to six miles across.  In the evening visit the local market here.
