Arunachal Pradesh is a land of history, culture, and diversity. Its districts, each with a unique story, make for an interesting chapter in the history of the state.

In 2001, the Kurung Kumey district was formed, and the Dibang Valley district was bifurcated into Dibang Valley and Lower Dibang Valley. These districts are known for their breathtaking landscapes and scenic beauty.
