INFORMATION ABOUT ARUNACHAL PRADESH
Arunachal Pradesh is a state located in the far Northeast part of India, bordering China, and part of which is claimed by China. Arunachal Pradesh borders with the Indian state of Assam to the south and Nagaland to the southeast.Arunachal Pradesh means “land of the dawn lit mountains” in Sanskrit. It is also known as “land of the rising sun” (“pradesh” means “state” or “region”) in reference to its position as the easternmost state of India. Most of the people native to and/or living in Arunachal Pradesh are of Tibeto-Burman origin.
The climate of Arunachal Pradesh varies with elevation. Areas that are at a very high elevation in the Upper Himalayas close to the Tibetan border enjoy an alpine or Tundra climate. Below the Upper Himalayas are the Middle Himalayas, where people experience a temperate climate. Areas at the sub-Himalayan and sea-level elevation generally experience humid, sub-tropical climate with hot summers and mild winters.
Modern-day Arunachal Pradesh is one of the linguistically richest and most diverse regions in all of Asia, being home to at least thirty and possibly as many as fifty distinct languages in addition to innumerable dialects and subdialects thereof. Boundaries between languages very often correlate with tribal divisions.
