Nowadays, festivals are noticeably expanding and with it, the significance of tourism festivals is also increasing. Not only there has been an increase in tourist traffic but it also has had many positive impacts, such as generating income for the locals which in turn have enabled to improve the quality of the festivals.
Arunachal Pradesh, the land of the dawn-lit mountains, home to picturesque valleys, mountains, unexplored paths, tranquil lakes, prominent hermitages, and an array of flora and fauna is one of the amazing getaway destinations for tourists.
Festival tourism emphasizes celebrating, promoting and exploring aspects of our art, culture, music, adventure, and nature. Its substantial influence on nature, culture, and society are the reasons why festival tourism is rapidly growing in Arunachal Pradesh. Some of the prominent tourism festivals of Arunachal Pradesh which have garnered attention over the few years are Ziro Music Festival, Tawang Festival, Dambuk Festival of Music and Adventure, Basar Confluence, Siang River Festival etc.
These festivals aim to create substantial interest for cultural heritage, such as historical monuments, tradition, sites of important events etc. as well as participation in cultural events or events related to recreation, adventure, and sports.
