Nyishi trade route has a lot to offer to adventure freaks

Press Trust of India  |  Itanagar 

: Members of the 'Lali Modi Exploration' team, led by Engineer Sangkoli Cheda and Seppa Extra Assistant Commissioner Dr Olik Taring, recently, embarked on the virgin trekking route that connects East Kameng and Papum Pare districts, the erstwhile migration route used by their Nyishi ancestors for trade purposes.

The team which started its expedition from Jote, Wotte and Lasak Cheda villages under Pipu circle of East Kameng district on November 26 last, was flagged in at Midpu, here last night by state Urban Development & Housing Minister Nabam Rebia.


The expedition was flagged off by Sports & Youth Affairs secretary Dani Salu from the Civil Secretariat here on November 24 last. It was sponsored by Gyadom Welfare Society(GWS).

The 42-member team including supporting staff undertook rigorous trekking through rugged terrain and dense forest to explore the route.

"Covering a distance of more than 80 kilometers, the team could cover only 10-15 kilometers per day," said Sangkoli Cheda.

The members of the team feel this route with its enchanting landscape, valleys and different species of endangered flora and fauna has a lot to offer to adventure freaks.

Congratulating the team for successfully exploring the erstwhile migration route, Rebia said, "Arunachal Pradesh has numerous such unexplored trekking routes which could be promoted as tourist destinations."

"I am going to submit a proposal to the state government soon for establishment of tourist trekking route from Dabiowa Cheda to Mengio via Changhi Porang, Putte and Lali Ane to Kullung Tappo (Mengio)," Rebia added.
