    My sister and I have developed a keen interest in traveling and have traveled a couple of nearby places and now wish to go to Arunachal Pradesh.
    As much as we both like traveling we like traveling the fun way too, so getting a flight to somewhere would be just boring for us.

    Please suggest how to go to Arunachal Pradesh by either train or road from Delhi?

    Its always best to travel the fun way, it just makes the trip more adventurous and you actually get to see more too.

    The nearest railway station to Arunachal Pradesh is Naharlagun Railway Station. Trains from major Indian cities like Delhi, Kolkata, and Guwahati are available to this station. From Naharlagun Railway Station, you can take a taxi or bus to reach Arunachal Pradesh.

    Arunachal Pradesh is well connected by road with other parts of India. You will be able to get a bus or a taxi from major Indian cities like Delhi, Kolkata, and Guwahati to reach Arunachal Pradesh. When traveling from cities far away, it is most likely that you would have to change buses at some point.
    Just for information from Delhi by road, it would take over 35 hours for the journey by train it would take just around 35 hours and a flight would not be more than 10 hours including layover.
