Itanagar the Capital of the northeastern state Arunachal Pradesh is an enchanting city that enthralls you with its mystique appeal and an ultramodern attitude. The city is dwarfed by the towering presence of the snow covered peaks of Himalayan ranges from the North eastern side while the plains of River Brahmaputra stretch its arm from the southern side. The unique magnificence and splendor of the state of Arunachal Pradesh and its exquisite capital, Itanagar is a joy to visit. The warmth of the music loving populace and the amicable weather throughout the year are other reasons that attract tourists in hordes towards this quiet state. Itanagar, the 'Land of Dawn lit Mountains' is divided into two parts, the other is known as Naharlagun.

The state of Arunachal Pradesh has recently been opened up for tourism by the government that was wary of polluting influence the tourists might have had on the tribal heritage which dates back several centuries. Security of the tourists was also another bone of contention during an uncertain phase which is history. English, Aptani, Hindi, Assamese, Nishi, and Adi are languages that are widely spoken in Arunachal Pradesh.

Itanagar offers various attractions for a wandering soul that include the Ita fort, Ganga Lake or the Gyakar Sinyi, the Namdhapa National Park. Itanagar is also noted as an archaeological site due to the presence of various heritage monuments in the vicinity. A long walk on the city streets and by-lanes will overwhelm you the exquisite wood carvings, creatively performed traditional musical instruments and intricate textile patterns. The Handicraft Centre provides an insight into the fine art of cottage cane industry.
