Firstly, for travelling to Arunachal Pradesh, all tourists require an ILP (Inner Line Permit), which can be acquired from Arunachal Pradesh Houses situated in Kolkata, New Delhi and Guwahati. You will need to get a permit for each of the sectors you intend to visit and here is their break up:

1. Sector 1: Bomdila, Dirang, Tawang
2. Sector 2: Itanagar, Ziro
3. Sector 3: Namdapha, Changlang

For reaching Itanagar, you will have to either take a train or plane to Guwahati, from where the former is a seven hour car ride away. You can find modes to travel from your city to Guwahati by just typing in 'City name to Guwahati' in the search box above. Now that the logistics are clear, lets start planning your holiday!

First stop: Itanagar!

Land of Dawn lit Mountains, Itanagar is the capital of the largest northeastern state of India, Arunachal Pradesh. Hemmed in by the lofty snow capped Himalayas, this pristine city has an unmatched splendor attached to itself.

Places to see in Itanagar include the Fort Itanagar, Jawaharlal Nehru State Museum, Ganga Lake and Gompa Mandir. A few hotels in the city are:

1. Hotel Donyi Polo Ashoka
Address: Near All India Radio, Itanagar, Arunachal Pradesh
Telephone: +91-360-212626

2. Hotel Arun Subansiri
Address: 0' Point Tinali, Itanagar
Telephone: : +91-360-212806

For more hotels, you can check out Arunachal Pradesh Hotel Directory. Its a good idea to stay for 1 night in Itanagar and head out by the second day.

Next Up: Bomdila

Bomdila is a paradise for adventure lovers. Go rafting, trekking or angling when here and gear up for an exciting time! You also have a few places to see in Bomdila, making the place great for those who love to click pictures.

Couple of hotels in Bomdila are:

1. Hotel Siphiyang Phong
Address: Near Himalayan Holidays, Main Bazarline, Bomdila, Arunachal Pradesh

2. Tsepal Yongjam

Telephone: : +91-33-2486500 (For Bookings only)

You should spend two nights in Bomdilla and head to Tawang on the third day.

Coming up: Tawang

Experience the unexplored, awe-inspiring charm of Arunachal Pradesh in this quaint hill-town. Understand the Tibetan-Buddhist elements that influence the culture, food and lifestyle here, granting it an absolutely unique flavour. A trekker's delight, Tawang will simply steal your heart away.

Check out the various places to see in Tawang and your accommodation options here. Staying for 2 nights and 3 days in Tawang is a good idea, giving you time enough to soak in all the natural beauty and understand the cultural fabric of the place.

You will now have to returrn to Itanagar, to continue your journey to Namdapha National Park. It is advisable to stay in Itanagar for a night again, and then proceed to Namdapha.

4. Namdapha National Park

Arunachal’s vast mountain forests, with gigantic trees and sunless forest floor, appear to be straight out of paradise. You can make your arrangements for stay in Namdapha National Park at the Tourist Office in Itanagar (Telephone: +91-360-20398). This is a fantastic place to spot rare tropical creatures and huge varieties of birds, like wild dogs, barking deer and yellow-throated marten.

Spend 2 nights in nature's lap before you return to Itanagar to head back home after a memorable holiday.

Hope this helps!

There are plenty of options for ten days when it comes to Arunachal Pradesh. A few are somewhat popular, but most of them are offbeat routes. The following are a few examples for what you could do in ten days:

1. Guwahati - Tawang - Guwahati

This route will take you to the high mountains of eastern Himalayas. The drive is extremely scenic and you get an opportunity to visit a very important Buddhist settlement of the world.

2. Dibrugarh - Ziro - Daporijo - Along - Pasighat - Dibrugarh

This route will take you to the interiors of Arunachal Pradesh to the tribal territories. The journey throughout is extremely scenic and remote. It is quite an experience to learn about the tribes of the region. They are delightful and their culture is way different from mainland India. You will also get to sail in the Brahmaputra in this route. Greener Pastures, an ecotourism outfit provides a similar tour called the central Arunachal Pradesh tour of tribes.

3. Dibrugarh - Namdapha National Park - Dibrugarh

This is for the adventure enthusiasts and the wildlife lovers. The park offers an opportunity to spot some exotic wildlife and trek in India's largest national park in terrain that consists of rainforest. It is the only rainforest adventure that is available in entire India.

4. Dibrugarh - Kibithu - Dibrugarh

This scenic route consists of driving till the eastern most edge of India, to an army settlement known as Kibithu, near which are the mountains of South Tibet. It is an offbeat adventure where the drive is extremely scenic. You will also visit orange farms and meet tribal people from the charming Mishmi Tribe.

NOTE: There are few other treks which happen around Tawang and eastern Arunachal Pradesh area. Mostly, these adventures are best arranged via a tour operator of the region.
