How to Reach Arunachal Pradesh

How to get there by Air

There are no flight services to Arunachal Pradesh. The nearest airport to Itanagar is Lilabari in Assam, which receives flights from Guwahati. The distance between Lilabari airport and Itanagar can be covered in two hours by bus or a taxi.

You can also fly into Tezpur Airport, which is 226 km away, from Kolkata. Both airports are well connected to Itanagar and Naharlugan cities in Arunachal Pradesh by taxis and buses.

How to get there by Rail

The nearest railhead is Harmuty, 33km from Itanagar but the most convenient disembarkation point is North Lakhimpur, some 60km distance from Itanagar. The Arunachal Pradesh Express serves Harmuty. Super fast and fast passenger trains will bring you to North Lakhimpur from Guwahati (Assam). Guwahati is extremely well connected to the rest of India. Taxis and buses link both railway stations to Itanagar.

How to get there by Road

You can drive into Itanagar and Naharlugan from neighbouring Assam and Meghalaya and expect a mix of reasonably good motorways and ill-maintained tracks. Tezpur (Assam) also has a direct and frequented road to the tourist spots of Bomdila and Tawang. This is hill country and a roller coaster ride. It’s a good idea to rent a 4WD with a chauffeur or take a bus as driving a car is difficult in this region – stopover and breakdown infrastructure is negligible. Direct buses are available from Guwahati, Jorhat, Dibrugarh, Tinsukhia and Nagaon in Assam as well as from Shillong (Meghalaya) to Itanagar.
