The nearest railway station is Naharlagun (NHLN) Northeast Frontier Railway Itanagar, Arunachal Pradesh, which is 190 kilometers (4:30 hours drive) from Lumdung Valley.

Seppa can be reached by bus, private vehicle, or taxi from Itanagar and Tezpur in Assam. There are two (2) routes from Itanagar to Seppa: one via Bhalukpong (430km) and one via Sagali (210km).


Despite being longer, the first is preferable to the latter. Due to landslides, the latter is nearly impossible to travel during the rainy season. The distance from Tezpur is 220 kilometers.



 

Paragliding in Mechuka


Mechuka is a small picturesque valley in Arunachal Pradesh's West Siang district that is nearly 6000 feet above sea level. Mechuka is a very less explored place and Paragliding is one of the best things to do if you are visiting Mechuka, Arunachal Pradesh.

The best time to visit


November to April is the best time to visit Mechuka. It is best to travel after the monsoon season because the road conditions are less than ideal during the rainy season. As a result, avoid traveling during that time.
