And Mother Nature has been kind enough towards Arunachal in providing natural beauty in plenty. Therefore, by organizing such festivals, an attempt has been made to promote eco-tourism in the state.
This year the festival will be held in the confluence of rivers Yomgo and Sipu at Aalo and will be extended to the islands lying on the other side of Yomgo which would ensure an exciting, enlightening and incredible advanture and enable one and all to savor the delight of wild beauty with the pristine Yomgo racing by.Yomgo is one of the main tributaries of mighty Siang.
