The Journey

The journey to the Ziro Festival of Music is an adventurous one. There aren’t any direct flights to Ziro, Arunachal Pradesh; and hence, a direct flight is taken to Guwahati, Assam, which is around 440 km from Ziro Valley. There’s a train that can be boarded in the morning, evening or late in the night from Guwahati, a journey of approximately 7 hours and 40 minutes, to Naharlagun, a town situated in the foothills of Himalayas in the Indian state of Arunachal Pradesh.

You can also hire a private vehicle from Guwahati for the entire session which is most convenient during your stay at Ziro valley (finding a local vehicle within Ziro is very hard).

Additionally requires ILP ( Inner line permit) and PAP (Protected Area Permit) respectively..
