Ziro Festival of Music 2016

The Ziro Festival of Music is on every year in Arunachal Pradesh in the month of September. This year, the organisers have fixed the dates as September 22 – 25, 2016. The festival is, as the organisers put it – 4 days of eat, drink and merry. We can vouch for that. Our experience over the last two years was out of this world.

This trip is ideal for music and concert enthusiasts.
