Ziro Tribal Discovery Tour in 1 Day

1 Day Tour
0 Nights / 1 Day
Arunachal Pradesh
Surrounded by undulating hills and punctuated by streams, the Ziro valley is a highly fertile landscape which is home to the Apatani, an ethnically distinct tribe whose relationship with nature lies at the heart of its cultural identity.

The livelihood of the Apatani people is based on agriculture, specifically paddy cultivation, where every centimeter is prudently utilized to maximize the yield of three crops: millet is planted on the inside walls of the plots, rice is grown in the irrigated fields, and within this carefully constructed network of ponds and channels, fish are also farmed. This one day tour opens a window onto the way of life of these fascinating people.

About the Guide

"I'm a woman entrepreneur from Austria and run a resort in Goa, India. I have rarely followed the crowd, have always lived curiously and am unafraid to travel alone. But when the time came for me to explore India, I wanted someone else to put together a fascinating itinerary and look after the logistics for me so that I could totally let my hair down and have fun.

It was a huge stroke of good fortune that I found out about Sange Tsering - The Holiday Scout. Highly knowledgeable about the natural, historical and cultural treasures of Northeast India, well organized and committed to customer satisfaction in his approach, Sange is more than a qualified travel guide.

Given his contagious enthusiasm for discovery, Sange encouraged me to try everything and what started out as a tour quickly became a glorious pursuit of new life experiences which we found and swallowed whole for eleven straight days! Northeast India is a truly mesmerizing region, and I will surely return to travel with The Holiday Scout - the guide makes all the difference."
