The last frontier of India’s tourism, the virginal Arunachal Pradesh comes across as a gigantic patch of the unchartered green on the map of India. The wildest and definitely the least explored state of the country, Arunachal Pradesh is also known as the Land of Dawn-lit Mountains. It rises precipitously from the plains of the Assam as a large mall of densely forested and fatally steep hills which finally tower off as the snow-capped peaks along the border of Tibet. Arunachal is indeed the last sanctuary for the anthropological and natural heritage of India. It is also a home to 26 primitive tribes. Major section of the state remains beyond the reach of the tourists however there are certain new areas which are gradually being opened for the tourists.   

If truth be told, China has never really accepted the Indian dominance here and it did take the surprise invasion of China in the year 1962, for Delhi to actually begin the funding for the major infrastructure here. At present, the border passes are massively hoarded by Indian military and the atmosphere is significantly calm. In comparison to its neighbors, Arunachal has relatively been unharmed by the civil unrest or the political violence. This does not stop the rebels of Naga to continue being active in the north eastern states along the border of Myanmar and Nagaland.

On the way to Thekaddy, after around 13 to 14 KM from Munnar you will spot a Board opposite to a cave entrance right on the NH and the board reads a very interesting story about the Rock cave, also known as Malayil Kallan Guha where Malayil is said to the one who leaves on the mountain or rock, Kallan is a thief and Guha means a cave in Malayalam; which together tells the story of the thief who lived in the cave and robbed people taking a journey on this road, in earlier days. 


It is just opposite to the Lockhart Gap which provides some breathtaking vistas of the entire town, soaked in fumes of clouds and mist. This is one of the Munnar tourist places which is a good spot to stop your car and take a short break.
