IMPORTANT TRIP ADVISORY:

 

Things to know before visiting Arunachal Pradesh

1)Mobile network:
Only BSNL Postpaid works in the region. No other Postpaid connection works. Prepaid connection doesn’t even work in Assam. Other Postpaid connections work in Assam. So if you need to be connected while you are there, please don’t visit unless you have a postpaid BSNL connection. If you don’t have BSNL then be prepared to be disconnected from the point you leave Tezpur/Guwahati till you come back there.

2)Inner Line Permit:
Everyone who is entering Arunachal Pradesh needs to show the ILP at Bhalukpong (if entering byroad) or at the Guwahati Airport (if using the helicopter). Presently ILP is available from these places (official site of AP Govt).

If you are an Indian, you can apply personally in advance for a 15 day inner line permit (easily extendable for 15 days) in Delhi, Kolkata, Guwahati or the places mentioned in Assam. Foreign nationals have to get it from Delhi.

The fee for Indian Nationals is 20 Rs per person last updated You can get it within a few hours, or in worst case, within one day of applying. It will take much more time for foreign nationals. Do not go for agents, who charge in the range of 8000 Rs just to take your documents in advance and email or fax it to you. Get it done personally, or send your documents to someone you trust in these cities to get it done for you.

All DC offices of Arunachal Pradesh Govt, whether in Tezpur or Guwahati or anywhere they are present their office remains are closed on Sundays and Public holidays. You won’t get your ILP made on these days.


3)Travel Duration:
Keep at least 4 extra days in hand .If by good fortune you do get back as planned then you can visit other good places like Shillong (2 days), Kaziranga (1 day), Tezpur (1 day) and of course the Kamakhya Temple in Guwahati. If you are returning by road, then you can very well visit The Nameri Eco camp and Tiger reserve (rafting is on between Oct and March) for a day or two or Tezpur for a day.

You need at least 2 days to See Tawang properly. we recommend 3. You can do local Sightseeing including Tawang monastery in one day. You can visit Madhuri Lake and the destinations on the way in one day. If you plan to visit China border, you need one more day, and yes you need another Permit apart from your ILP from the Army Brigade. It is done easily if you have your ILP, but beware of holidays and Sundays, when you won’t get the counter sign from the Brigadier and the DC.
