Ziro town, Arunachal Pradesh

Ziro is a small town atop the hills in the North-East Indian state of Arunachal Pradesh. This town is a home to Apatani tribal people, an agrarian tribe sharing a responsible relationship with nature. These people are very hospitable to an interesting culture and legacy. Ziro valley is lush with paddy farms and is popular for its unique paddy cum fish cultivation. Farmers rear fish in the knee-deep water by using traditional irrigation methods. Besides farmers, one can also spot adorable, shy, and harmless Indian Bisons.
