By Deepak Biswakarma

With an intention to transcend geographical frontiers, the 2018 edition of Pangsau Pass International Festival is being organised every year in Arunachal Pradesh to project and promote the rich cultural heritage of the region.

The venue of the event, Nampong (in Changlang district) is small hilly town along the Indo-Myanmar border and Namchik basin covered with greenery. It must be noted that Nampong is designated as a global village as it conjoins the diverse tribes of the Northeast India and of Myanmar. The cultural carnival has cut across social barriers, inspiring the secluded regions to celebrate the ethnic existences that strongly bond all tribes.

The festival is also a paradise for photographers, along with being a cultural hotspot. Did we forget to mention about the diverse Flora and Fauna? We all know Arunachal Pradesh, don’t we?

The festival provides not only folk songs, dances, ethnic food and traditional sports but also expedition of a lifetime to experience Burmese culture and a visit into their territory.
