Back to Shillong

back to Shillong, Meghalaya, northeast of India, going to visit the only living root bridges in the world , the wettest place in India or in the world so claimed the Indians (they seem to claim a lot of things), the cleanest village in India. Just completed my Arunachal Pradesh leg of this trip.

Quick wrapup on Arunachal

Completed this part of the trip to Arunachal Pradesh, Northeast India. The permit was for 1 month. cost Us$50 + $20 travel commission.
Places visited : Via Tezpur in Assam
Diriang, Tawang, Bomdila, Itanagar, Ziro, Aalo (Along) , Mechuka, Daporijio, Yingkiong, Pashighat. Varied climates, tribes, landscapes. Amazing place, visited I had more time to do some longer hikes to places where the roads are not built yet.

Here in Arunachal Pradesh

arrived in Along, or the new name Aalo, this is the area of Adi and Galong tribal people. Traditional villages with pretty modern people, and famous for their hanging bridges. Spent today in the market and hanging out with the old Adi ladies selling tribal stone bead jewellery. Went crazy and bought some necklaces for sg$50, choose some beads and got them to make it for me. Planning to walk to the various villages which will take around 10km each way. Kinda like it here, good vibes will spent a few days here.

Weather wise not so great, rained with grey and cloudy weather. Humid but on good side not so hot, a little cool. Quite a lot of mosquitos and other bugs since this is jungle region.
