Arunachal Pradesh is a state where you can experience nature at its very best. Sharing its border with Bhutan, China and Myanmar, Arunachal’s lovely hills and vales are indeed a sight to behold. Apart from its natural grandeur and soothing climate, the natives of this state are known for their simplicity and warm hospitality.
A major part of Arunachal Pradesh is covered with lush evergreen forests. Apart from thick forest cover, five rivers namely Kameng, Subansiri , Lohit , Siang and Tirap flows through the hills of Arunachal thereby offering great opportunities for adventure sports like trekking ,angling ,boating and rafting. In fact the state is much sought after for adventure tourism that is quite frequently organized in its upper reaches.
At a time when the population of the big cat family is declining rapidly in other parts of the world, Arunachal Pradesh proudly enjoys the distinction of having the big four namely tiger, leopard, clouded leopard and snow leopard in its jungles. In addition, the state is also home to two endangered feline species- golden cat and marbled cat.
Regarding avian varieties, over 500 species are found in Arunachal with a notable number being highly endangered and rare. Species like white-winged duck, scatter, monal bangal florian etc are not found anywhere except here.
Apart from these there are also other varieties of wildlife including the exclusive Takin (one of seven species of primates found in Arunachal) and the majestic mammal called Mithun.
