A Trip to Arunachal Pradesh Full of Oranges to celebrate New Years!

Guwahati, Assam, India.

Description

It is not every day that you get to visit a geographic location that remains cut off from the rest of civilisation for half the year due to the lack of a motorable land. In winters nature allows you to enter Dambuk and use the dry river bed as a road. Hope you have an appetite for oranges!


Places covered

  • Guwahati, Dambuk, Bomjir, Kamakhya temple

Itinerary

  • Day 1:
    A train ride where we break the ice!
    Like every trip to Northeast India, you need to fly into Guwahati. Arunachal Pradesh is quite far from the Guwahati airport and this particular destination requires you to take an overnight train to enter Arunachal Pradesh. This journey to the last station in Assam before you cross over into the gargantuan forest-covered region of Arunachal Pradesh is a time to get to know fellow travellers, as we break bread and play different games.
    The train departs from Kamakhya station at 8:30 pm and reaches Murkongselek station at 8 am.
    Alternatively, you could also land in Dibrugarh on this day, and join us in Dambuk on Day 2|

    Day 2:
    Driving across a dry river bed to reach a remote village!
    As the train chugs into the station. Prepare for your drive to Dambuk. This is one of the most fascinating drives one can ever take as we drive across a river bed. Yes, there is no road, and locals wait for the winters to approach when the riverbed dries up and serves as the road. It is inaccessible in summers due to the high levels of the river. If you are familiar with the visuals of the salt flats of Rann of Kutch, this will remind you of the same but beneath your feet will be white rocks.
    After the 45-minute off-road drive check into your resort facing the mighty Dibang river, as blue as the picture on the right shows. Breathe some of the freshest air and look at the rugged mountains behind these royal blue waters.
    The resort you will be staying at consists of simple bamboo huts with minimal, to no extra fittings. As authentic as it gets without being uncomfortable.
    It offers the most stunning views of the Dibang river, you will have to be there to believe it.
    The village/ resort is your playground to ride ATVs, cycles or even feeding salt to the Mithun (the state animal of Arunachal Pradesh).
    Overnight stay at  Bomjir Resort.|

    Day 3:
    Exploring the village of Dambuk and Bomjir and rafting!
    There isn’t much that can be written about this day since what you will do depends on how you are feeling that day. Honestly, doing nothing and just going for a walk along the riverside is as good as doing multiple activities. We do have a casual rafting experience planned for you on the very river that you see from your cottage.
    The traditional huts of the Adi tribes are something that will definitely draw your attention and we will enter some of the homes to see how it feels living inside an Adi hut.
    Bring in the new year with your new friends and enjoy local alcohol and food for the night.
    Overnight stay at Bomjir Resort.
    Oh did we mention the local oranges which you will be feasting on? This village is known for them and you should get your hands full, before the exports to UAE finish them off.|

    Day 4:
    A sumo ride and train to Guwahati!
    Today’s morning should be utilised in taking in the views and just being one with the place. Since it’s time to bid farewell to your hosts and hop to your Sumo for a ride back to the station after lunch. On the way make a stopover at Pasighat to enjoy views of Bodak ghat and Ranaghat before driving to Murkongselek to catch your overnight train to Guwahati.
    Total drive from Dambuk to Murkongselek will be 3 hours and the train journey will be 12 hours long.
    The train departs from Murkongselek at 7 pm and reaches Guwahati at 7 am.|

    Day 5:
    Bye Northeast India
    Board your flight/ train back home, until you return.
    In case you want to visit the Kamakhya temple, then flight tickets can be booked in the evening so that you get enough time for the visit.
    You will reach Guwahati at 7 am if the train reaches on time.
