Welcome to Pasighat, the oldest town of Arunachal Pradesh. The town was established in 1911 by the British. It is the headquarter of the East Siang district. Due to its 'strategic' situation where the Siang leaves the mountains, Pasighat has been often called the gateway to the state of Arunachal Pradesh.

Pasighat is situated on the banks of the river Siang and is at a height of 152 m. from the sea level. It's population is almost 23,000.

The climate is hot and humid in summers and temperate during winters. The average daytime temperature varies from around 32C in Summer to around 23C in winter. At night the average winter temperature is around 8C

How to get there:
The nearest airport is at Lilabari. Another option (and a more interesting one) is Mohanbari (Dibrugarh), from where you can take a ferry across the Brahmaputra to Oiramghat, which is a few kms from Pasighat. Tip: avoid it during the rainy season when the river is flooded. Pasighat can also be reached by bus from Guwahati (overnight journey), Lakhimpur and Itanagar.
