Wildlife & Sanctuaries
The diverse topography with dramatic changes in altitude, make Arunachal Pradesh one of the most unique geographical zones in India. The climatic conditions dependent on the altitude provide for a very diverse ecological environment. This shift in climatic conditions across the state has given rise to a rich and diverse wildlife population.
