The drive from Ziro in Arunachal Pradesh, to the base of the Himalayas in Assam, was a very picturesque drive. A new road being carved out of the mountains, not yet asphalted gave us the thrill of driving off-road!
Destination: Mangaldai, Assam
Distance Covered: 376 kms
States Covered: Arunachal Pradesh, Assam
We had a very thrilling drive on a highway still being carved out of the high mountains in Arunachal Pradesh between Potin and Bandardewa. We witnessed first-hand, the incredible job being done by the Border Roads Organisation – the unsung heroes of India’s road network!
We also met people of the Apathani and Nyishi tribes, and took pictures of their long houses and churches with strong local influences.
