More on Ziro


The tribe of Ziro is known for its colourful and vibrant clothes. If you get time try shopping for beautiful clothes to add to your collection. Ziro is famous for bamboo items, like bamboo baskets, Apatani handlooms and locally made handicraft items. Also worth buying in Ziro are colourful rugs, scarves and jackets. 

Restaurants of various hotels and resorts are recommended. Avoid local street shops. Rats are a delicacy in Ziro. Local cuisine is typically Tibetan.
You should try out the Momo (dumplings filled with vegetables or boiled pork or meat), Thukpa (a soup made of vegetables, minced meat and noodles), Zan (a dish made of millets and had with vegetables or meat and fermented cheese), Khura (a type of pancake) had with tea, Gyapa Khazi ( kind of rice pulao with fermented cheese, shrimp or dried fish and other spices).

Ziro can be explored in 1 or 2 days. You can hire taxis to roam around the city and to visit the nearby places you can hire rickshaws. You can start your day by visiting the Talley Valley wildlife sanctuary, early in the morning. You can then follow it up by visiting the pine and the bamboo groves. On the same day, you can see the Tipi orchid research centre. The weather in Ziro is very pleasant, so you can travel the entire day. It becomes dark in Arunachal Pradesh very early so try rounding off things before 4:00 PM.  You can trek to the Kile Pakho and also the Meghna Cave temple.

On the second day, you can visit the Tarin Fish farm, which is 200 km from the city. Your entire day will be spent in travelling. By the evening you can have a look at the local market for authentic cuisine and the traditional clothes.  It is better if you hire a taxi and explain the driver the places you want to visit. You can either give them your itinerary or you can travel according to their plan. However, specify the places that you want to visit, as they might neglect them if they are too far from the city.

Wow. Just wonderful. The lush greenery all around, mesmerized you. If you are planning to visit Arunachal then keep two nights aside exclusively for Ziro. One night to reach there and another to experience the Ziro inside you. Highly recommended to all avid nature lovers. You'll certainly remember Ziro for so many years

- Carry proper woolens for the destination. Evenings and early mornings can get quite chilly.

Holidify's Opinion

  What's Great?

This beautiful hill station is full of lush green forest, rivulets and is famous for its paddy cum pisciculture cultivation. People are very helpful and know how to speak Hindi and English.

  What's not so Great?

It is difficult to reach Ziro. There are no direct flights or trains to Ziro. The food and water can also prove to be an issue for some people. Try drinking only bottled water, and eating food from clean and hygienic places.

For Whom

Ziro is a very beautiful place. It can be an ideal destination for families. Corporate and working people can come here on tours for adventure activities like trekking. It is also an ideal spot for artists as they can work here peacefully and also get influenced by the rich and beautiful culture. It is an ideal destination for anybody and everybody who wants to explore the unexplored Arunachal Pradesh.
