Pasighat is the main town in the east of Arunachal Pradesh. The only two areas where tourists can freely circulate are the Tuting Valley and the Namdapha National Park.

My suggestion:
During my trip to India, it was the easternmost town that I was able to visit. Make sure you check out in advance the regions to which you will or will not be given access.
My review

Unlike Itanagar, the capital, Pasighat resembles Assam more than Arunachal Pradesh Here you'll find the countryside of Jorhat and Dibrugarh, both situated on the side of the river.

Don't go as far as Pasighat just to see the town. To make it worthwhile, combine it with a tour of the mysterious Tuting Valley or the Namdapha National Park. Another option is to head towards Along and the Mechuka Valley, on the border with Tibet. Whatever choice you make, you'll find yourself well off the beaten track around Pasighat!

As with all parts of Arunachanl Pradesh, the locals are welcoming and friendly.
