The Dibang Adventure takes you deep inside Dibang valley,  one of the last wild frontiers in our country.  Tucked away in the far eastern corner of Arunachal Pradesh this thickly forested valley is a biodiversity hotspot – home to  6000 plant species, 100 mammal species and about 700 bird species. This 200 odd kilometer valley inhabited by the Idu Mishmi community is also referred to as Mishmi Hills.

The Dibang Adventure is our humble attempt to make you experience the vanishing culture of the Idu people . For thousands of years this this little known community has lived a life in close proximity to the forests they reside in . Their culture, lifestyle , weaving patters, food habits are all deeply interconnected with nature. This slow paced journey through some spectacular landscapes will open your eyes to a new culture, making you think of more sustainable ways of living.
