It was about 3.5 hour travel from kalaktang to Dirang. we were slowly gaining altitude until Bomdila. As we traveled north in Arunachal, the number of military camps we saw kept on increasing. Bunkers, millitary truck, tents, igloo shaped godowns and happy soldiers wandering with pride.
THE MIGHTY DIRANG
Our stays in this trip, were mostly in high altitude. For a change we chose a hotel in the valley, it was right on the bank of Dirang river. Highway was on the other side of the river and we had to walk across this bridge to reach the cottage. The bridge is the highlight of this place. Riverine breeze across the bridge was so refreshing, plus sun shine making the day bright, led to wonderful time in ‘Dirang Boutique cottages’ .
Kids went crazy about the lawn,they started running helter-skelter everywhere thy could. so We spent most of our time in the lawn, gushing river, walled by a green mountain, a small river beach, a well maintained patch of grass and orange trees. 🙂 Sushma took up the task of being the commander-in-cheif for the Baccha party.

The lawn monkey bussiness… Avi was feasting on the bright sunny day light. Each click was worth a story.
Sun was tired we were not, we continued to play indoor after dusk. Uno and Chowkabara post 5pm, backed up by Vishu’s special mixture of mixtures (Khara, bhujiya, avalakki puri) and ginger tea.
Yes! Vishu has this great talent of mixing different mixtures and bringing out new flavors! this helped replenish our taste buds which were confused with bland mountain food.
Yummy breakfast is the best way to start a day, and guess what they served us rotis and aloo gobi with lot of smiles. which filled our heart.
THE RIVER BEACH
This was a peacefull place, with no sound other than the dance of water. Amma meditated here for about an hour till we all barged in
🙂 Kids played in sand, took turns to taste pure Dirang water. Despite a boundry line for kids, gaurded by Vishwa, Pranav ran towards water to wash his hands and scared us all.
Dirang Has a couple of tourist spots,
1)Dirang dzong: old tribal buildings, with beautiful architecture, build to sustain harsh weather conditions.
2) Hot water spring: its a 15 min trek off the high way to reach hot water spring. and many more
Totally Dirang, was fun for kids, feast for eyes!
