Arunachal Pradesh, India, Tribal Diversity and Living Traditions

Arunachal Pradesh, in Northeast India, is a tribal state with a great variety of different tribes where old traditions and lifestyles can still be observed.
I have already posted two galleries about the Apatanies and one about the Wanchos in Arunachal.
In this gallery you will find pictures of a few other tribes: the Gallong, the Nyishi, the Mishmi, the Minyong, the Hill Miri and the Tagin.

You can find an in-depth coverage of our tour in German with further details and pictures at: http://www.neuenhofer.de/guenter/
