The North Eastern kingdom of India receives a generous amount of rainfall, and Arunachal is no exception.

The heat of summers is washed down by the cool rainfall, and the greenery experiences a full bloom.

Verdant and expansive greenery carpets everything, and the cloudy skies make the valleys and hills look like something right out of a fairy tale. While all of this holds true, visiting Arunachal in monsoons is not a good idea, as it experiences frequent bouts of landslides due to intense rainfall.

The roads become very dangerous, and travelling anywhere becomes a risk. Monsoon season sees the least number of tourists, owing to the dangers it tails. Besides landslides, there is also a high possibility of floods in the North East, which is why tourists avoid travelling there. However, if you think you can endure the risks, places like Nuranang Falls and Bap Teng Kang Falls should be your go to places to behold the raging splendour of nature during monsoons. Also, not to mention the widely famous Ziro Festival of Music that is conducted every year during September is one of the reasons you may want to go during monsoons!
