Info

Ziro in Arunachal Pradesh: Music in the Mountains – 28th September to 4th October (7 Days and 6 Nights)

In 2012, members of the iconic band, Menwhopause, Bobby Hano and Anup Kutty, founded the Ziro Music Festival. There has been no looking back since, and Ziro Music festival has made a place for itself, amongst the major music festivals in India. This festival is a 4 day-long event, featuring top class indie acts from all over the world and some of the best folk musicians from all the North Eastern states held in Ziro valley, Arunachal Pradesh in the Himalayas.
The festival also gives you a chance to have close encounters with the Apatani tribe, the indigenous tribe popular for their traditional tattooing practices, their animist culture and sustainable lifestyle.

It’s just the kind of break that you have been waiting for, an outdoor music festival set in the lush Ziro Valley with indie music, Himalayan views, and grass to lie back on.
We stay at a no-fuss, but a well maintained hotel in Ziro town, close enough to be part of the energy.

We begin our trip ex Gawahati, make our way alongside lush paddy fields to Tezpur and spend five nights at Ziro, for the music festival, and then head back to Tezpur and onward to Gawahati to get our flights back home.
We travel in comfortable Innovas and only plan 4 ladies to a car so that your journey is a comfortable one.
