PROFILE of GIBBON TRAVELS
 

GIBBON TRAVELS is a tour operator in North East India catering to foreign tourists and Indian visitors. It is approved by the Government of Arunachal Pradesh. GIBBON TRAVELS operates only tailor-made journeys to North East of India; it was started by Aruna & Komkar in 2000 to promote North East of India, to those wanting to experience the real India. Started as an entrepreneurial venture in 2000.

GIBBON is derived from the name of a small arboreal ape called HOLOOCK GIBBON (Scientific name: Bunopithecus hoolock), which is especially found in North Eastern region of India? It is the only ape found in the Indian subcontinent. It displays amazing agility in swinging through the trees of the evergreen forests where it lives and makes loud calls, which can be heard through the forest. We have taken this name because of our inspiration while guiding trips with Dr. George B Schaller one of the worlds greatest Field Biologist in 2000 and 2002

At GIBBON TRAVELS helps you to relax in its picturesque hills and dales, enjoy its salubrious climate and meet its simple and hospitable people with their glorious heritage of arts, crafts and colorful festival that reflect their ancient faith in the inexorable power of nature. The snow-capped mountains of Arunachal Pradesh bordering China (Tibet), Bhutan and Myanmar on its three sides stand behind the other like sentinels preserving eternal charms of the ethnic tribes and their exotic ways of life. High Mountain and dense forest have prevented intercommunication between tribes living in different valleys, isolation imposed by Geography has led over 26 major tribes and more than 60 sub tribes with several dialects to live and flourish with their distinct identities. The Apatani, Nishi, Hills Miri, Tagins, Galong, Adi-Minyongs, Idu-Mishmis, Nocte, Wangchos, Tangsas, Monpas, Mijis, and Akas are some of the major tribes of the Arunachal Pradesh. The fascinating beauty of the North-East India is not only little explored but little known to the outside world. But of late Arunachal Pradesh is savoring the attention and limelight in the international tourism sector.
