Our trip to the most uncharted region in India, Arunachal Pradesh.
This hidden, unknown gem in the far Northeast of India is riddled with dense tropical rain forest, inhabited by primitive local tribes. It is a place that is stacked to the brim with undescribed and undiscovered species, as well as well-known icons. This unique setting and the primitive conditions make Arunachal Pradesh our most intense expedition to date!
Travel with us to the land of the Apatani and Nyshi tribes, where we will share their humble homes and wade through their forests to find herpetofauna species unknown to science. Spend nights in jungle camps, hours away from civilization and share your surroundings with king cobras, Bengal tigers, Kaulback's lance-headed pit vipers, Jerdon's pitviper, monocled cobras and even the occasional red panda!
Have you ever wondered what it would be like to REALLY get back to basics? How it would be to live with a traditional tribe? To be in the front line of discovering species new to science?
If this is your cup of rice, let us know! Join us to India!
