When for most of India 3 am hosts the deepest leg in their slumber, there’s a village in the easternmost corner of the country that wakes up to a new day!
No, let Global Connection Siliguri tell you that it’s not because the villagers need to take to cultivation early,but because the sun actually rises in the village at 3 am.
That’s Dong Basti in Arunachal Pradesh in northeast India. No wonder, the state is described as the Land of the Rising Sun and there’s been the talk of introducing a separate time zone to do justice to the working populace there.
Arunachal Pradesh shares borders with Assam, Nagaland, Bhutan, Myanmar and China. It can be accessed through Tezpur in Assam. Numerous river valleys dissect the state, literarily givingthe feel of living on mountainous islands that have popped out from rivers.
The state receives up to as much as 5,000 mmrain annually and this has turned it into a pristine biodiversity hot-spotharbouring over 5,000 plants, rare orchids, medicinal shrubs, butterflies, insects, reptiles, some 85 terrestrial mammals, over 500 birds species.
The state is also home to 11 prominent archaeological sites,with the 337 years old Tawang Monastery being the prime.
Arunachal Pradesh is the most magical state in the kitty of Global Connection Siliguri and has offerings for all types of tourists. For the leisurely it has serenity by the riverbanks, for the adventurous tracking through deep forests and rafting through the rapids, for researchers a host of medicinal plants and orchids to explore, for the ill it offers a bath in the medicinal hot water springs, and for the ones seeking forgiveness from worldly sins a dip in the river where sage Parasuram washed off his sins.
An Inner Line Permit (ILP) is required to visit Arunachal Pradesh,but Global Connection Siliguriis there to shoulder the trouble on your behalf.
