Arunachal Pradesh, the “Land of the Rising Sun”, has added another feather to its cap by bagging the Best Offbeat Destination Award at the Outlook Traveller Awards 2023.

The award was received by Additional Resident Commissioner Sanjeev Dubey and Resident Tourism Officer Adong Moyong on behalf of Arunachal a ceremony held at Hotel ITC Maurya in New Delhi.

This recognition is a testament to the state’s breathtaking natural beauty, vibrant tribal culture, and unique experiences that it offers to travelers seeking something beyond the ordinary.

“This recognition is another pat at the back of all stakeholders – the department of tourism, tour operators, hotel operators, and the public of the state to re-dedicate themselves to preserving their nature and culture,” said Bengia Manna Sonam, Deputy Director of Tourism, Arunachal Pradesh.

Recently, the state also received the Best Upcoming Adventure State Award conferred by the Adventure Tour Operators Association of India (ATOAI) at its 15th Annual Convention held in Gujarat from December 16-19, 2023.

While expressing happiness upon receiving the award, CM Khandu, through a post on X, invited all citizens to visit the State and witness firsthand how nature has blessed the Land of the Rising Sun.

Settled in the Eastern Himalayas and sharing borders with Bhutan, Tibet and Myanmar, Arunachal Pradesh is a land of unexplored natural wonders.

From the snow-capped peaks to the lush green valleys and cascading waterfalls, the state’s landscape is a photographer’s paradise. The mighty Brahmaputra River snakes its way through the state, adding to its scenic charm.

Beyond its physical attributes, the state is home to 26 major tribes including over a hundred sub-tribes, each having unique customs, traditions and festivals.

Travelers can experience the warmth of the Apatani people, witness the vibrant Monpa dances, or trek through the Mishmi Hills, encountering the rich biodiversity of the region.

Arunachal’s tourism potential is on the rise, and the two awards – the Best Offbeat Destination Award and the Best Upcoming Adventure State Award – is sure to give it a further boost.
