Arunachal Pradesh: Vijaynagar and the Lisu community


On the banks of the Noya-Dihing River, the secluded land, situated amidst the thick woods, Vijaynagar, is encircled by Myanmar in three sides. Khamti and Singpho tribes are the indwellers of the famous Buddha pilgrimage destination, Vijaynagar. Lisu communities are also living in the adjoining places. They follow a culture which is a blend of Mongolian and Arya cultures. Arguably, Lisus are the descendents of the soldiers of the armed force of the king, Aleksandra.
Interested tourists can visit Pamisan, located at the border of India and Myanmar.
