We thought of finding some of the best places to witness a gorgeous sunsets in East India. Given that the valley of Arunachal Pradesh is just perfect for doing so, if you are someone who loves reflecting at life while looking at those sunsets, this should be motivation enough for you to book your tickets and head to Arunachal Pradesh.

1. Ziro Valley

Beauty of Ziro, Arunachal😍 . 🗨 ''Ziro, Arunachal Pradesh in North East India. A unique and explored corner of the world that harbours many tribes, cultures and over 220 languages. Getting here is tough, especially during monsoon when we went. We experience some of the most treacherous road conditions we have ever encountered…..roads turned into rivers and landslides were regular. But the reward was well worth it. North East is place unlike anywhere we have ever been, a truly intriguing and off the beaten path travel destination!⁠'' . .

Let us paint you a picture of how sunsets in the quaint-little villages of Ziro Valley look like. Imagine a remote valley stuck in time with bamboo huts, pine forests and paddy fields lit up by the crimson rays of the setting sun. Tough to imagine? Well, you don’t have to if you make your way to Ziro. It is a World Heritage Site and also the only place to offer a peek into the lives of the Apatani tribe.

2. Bomdila

Bomdila sits at the very intersection of cultural and natural abundance in Arunachal Pradesh. From the Bomdila View Point, the sight is something that photographs taken with the best DSLRs will fail to capture entirely. The monasteries in Bomdila set the spiritual vibe at a high unimaginable for the regular city-dwellers.

3. Dirang

Other than the natural hot-water spring and the Kalachakra Gompa, Dirang is mostly a valley full of viewpoints. No matter where you are standing, you will be greeted with one surprising view after the other. In case you happen to stand facing west during the time that the sun says bids adieu, you will witness a glorious sunset.

4. Mechuka

After a week of unexpected delays, we finally reached our last big stop in Arunachal Pradesh: the mountain village of Mechuka. In case you can't tell from the photo, it was freaking amazing. The air was crisp and clear, the sun shone for several hours each day, and no matter what direction you look in Mechuka, your view is awesome. Even better, there's no phone signal up in the valley, so there was nothing to distract us from the epic views in every which way. Every day, we'd load a backpack full of snacks and a thermos of chai, pick a direction, and walk until we could walk no more. Tough life, we know. It was positively idyllic, and we're already missing it. Have you ever fallen in love with a place like this?

Perched at a height of 6,000 feet, Mechuka or Menchukha literally translates to ‘Medicinal Water of Snow’. If you wake up feeling like doing something different, we suggest you hire a car and drive it all the way to Mechuka in the West Siang district, only 29 kms from the Indo-China border. Take a stroll, learn about its tribes, sit by the Siyom River and call it a day from atop a mountain with your eyes set on the setting sun at the horizon. The valley below will light up in the rays of the golden hour, making it worthy of every video, picture and timelapse.
