Pasighat is the headquarters of East Siang district in the Indian state of Arunachal Pradesh. Situated at the eastern foothills of the Himalayas at 155 meters above mean sea level, Pasighat is Arunachal's oldest town. The Government of India included Pasighat in the Smart Cities Mission development scheme in June, 2017.
Pasighat is popular for its adventure sports and the scenic locations the place has to offer. Waterfalls, hanging bridges and mountain cliffs make the place inviting and relaxing at the same time. Some of the tourist spots of the place include the Daying Ering Sanctuary, Kekar Monying, Komsing and Pangin.
Pasighat is known as the 'Gateway of Arunachal Pradesh' and is a pure heaven for nature lovers. If you looking for adrenaline rush, then this is also a great place for you as adventure activities like white river rafting, boating and angling (similar to fishing) will certainly set you rolling here. A unique blend of peace and adventure is what makes this place a must visit. Pasighat was founded in 1911 A. D. by the British as a gateway to administrative convenience of the greater Abor Hills and the north area in general. Primarily there were settlements of Pasi and Minyong communities who are still living in the villages in and around Pasighat. However, this place still has the beauty and the culture intact and it hasn't lost its charm as commercial tourism is yet to reach here.
