Welcome to Arunachal Pradesh

China has never formally recognised Indian sovereignty here, and even invaded Arunachal briefly in 1962. Border passes are heavily guarded by the Indian military, but the atmosphere is generally calm. Arunachal has been relatively untouched by political violence, though Naga rebels are active in the state's far southeastern corner.
