Itanagar, Jan 25: India celebrates National Tourism Day on 25 January every year to raise public awareness about the importance of tourism and make the people aware of the country’s rich and diverse culture.
From snow-capped mountains to boat rides, India is a land of endless tourist destinations for explorers who want to explore the best tourist attractions in the country.
However, most of the popular tourist places have already been explored and, thereby, have become chaotic and expensive and the victims of excessive littering.
Arunachal Pradesh is one of the most beautiful places in the country to explore. It has the most scenic locations, beautiful national parks, the most mesmerizing waterfalls, snow-covered peaks, etc.
Arunachal Pradesh Chief Minister Pema Khandu extended a greeting to all and humbly recognize their efforts to promote our lovely Arunachal Pradesh as a hub of tourism on National Tourism Day.

Seppa is a small town located in the East Kameng district of Arunachal Pradesh. The beautiful town settled behind the Kameng river in a scenic backdrop. It is located 142 away (4.5 hrs) from Bomdila and 198km (5 hrs) away from the Tezpur district of Assam.
It is one of the breathtaking destinations but bad road connectivity keeps this place on top of mysterious places in Arunachal Pradesh.
Apart from the places mentioned above, there are many other exciting offbeat places available in Arunachal Pradesh.
