One of the prettiest destinations in Northeast India, the sacred fertile Ziro Valley which is nestled in the hills of Arunachal Pradesh like a mythical kingdom. The layered landscape of rice fields, bamboo groves, pine forests, and villages has been carefully created over many centuries by its Apatani tribal settlers (today numbering about 30,000), whose clever use of the available land includes farming fish in the water of the irrigated rice paddies.
In Ziro trekking finds its place as the place can be best traversed on foot. For wildlife enthusiasts, we have Talley Valley Wildlife Sanctuary, where they can enjoy the rich and precious flora and fauna. We shall also include must-see places like Kile Pakho, Ziro Puto, Meghna Cave Temple, Dolo Mando, Hapoli, and Pine Grove to make your holiday a complete and memorable experience.
The popular Apatani villages dispersed around the valley are tightly packed with wooden stilt houses, though most of their roofs are now tin instead of roofing, and an increasing amount of people have moved into the valley’s more recent two towns: Hapoli (also called New Ziro) in the south and the smaller Old Ziro in the north. The climate of Ziro varies from season to season. Tourists visit Ziro throughout the year. The climate is dependent on the terrain and the location of the place. The months of October and November are the period of transition. However, throughout the year relative humidity is high except in winter.
