Formerly known as Along, Aalo sits as the headquarter of the West Siang district of Arunachal Pradesh and makes as a great holiday destination in North east India for people looking for immense peace, tranquility and solitude. The town is blessed with stupendous natural scenery sprinkled with beautiful orange gardens, swaying millet & buckwheat plantations and serene valleys. Two beautiful rivers, Sipu and Yomgo meandering right through the heart of this little hamlet, truly add to its picturesque charm and provide for a great time to passionate photographers offering them ample opportunities to capture nature in its most unpretentious form.
Aalo, with its rich cultural heritage and tribal legacy, also finds its name enlisted on the map of top tourism places for avid cultural freaks; ‘Kabu Village’, located just 2 km. off the main town is the hub of native Adi Tribes and provides for a great insight into their unique customs, traditions and religious practices.
