Futher details.

1. We would be taking a flight from Mumbai to Guwahati.

Thank you for reverting. I am a novice when it comes to Arunachal and still trying to understand the different places and how its connected to each other.

Here what has changed after reading few travellogs

1. I think Tawang circuit is too commercialized and will drop from my itinerary(atleast this time).

2. The Central and Western region of Arunachal looks interesting to our group. Will go through some travel logs.

3. Now planning to take flight to Dibrurgarh. Understand that will be more convenient if we intend to travel the central / western part of Arunachal.

4. I have gone through two travellog related to Mechuka and definitely want to walk down that road.

Here are some basic questions:

1. We are planning this trip in the month of April. Is this the right time for the trip? Someone from another forum told me that it rains during April and should shift the travel plans. If Yes, is Feb a good month for travelling to central / Western part of the state. Does it snow during the mid of Feb? We definitely want to see a green Arunachal than snowy plains.

2. We plan to book a car from Dibrurgarh for the complete trip. What kinda cost would we incur if we book a SUV for 15 days?

Tawang region is western Arunachal Pradesh.

Dibrugarh is a good option for exploring central region and Mechuka.

It doesn't snow in central Arunachal, but will be cold in Feb.

Occasional rain in April, good time to travel.

Innova/Xylo approx Rs.4500, may increase next year

I meant central and eastern (Anini) parts of Arunachal. My bad.

We don't mind the cold until it's not snowing and we get someone to drive around in these parts during Feb.

We did self drive to Spiti in September. So we are fine with that kinda temperature / climate.

Only Anini and Mechuka would have some snow in the surroundings. There wouldn't be any problem in traveling.

You can hire a taxi from Dibrugarh in Assam.

Thank you all for your advises.

I don't think we intend to do Anini. We might chalk a itinerary starting Pasighat - Tuting - Along - Mechuka - Daporijo.
