Welcome to North East India!
Here is a day to day activities that would tentatively happen during your trip to Ziro Festival of Music
Day 01|26th Sept: Train departs from Guwahati railway station at 9:20 PM. Hence, everyone should gather at the railway station by 8:00 PM. Make your travel arrangements to Guwahati accordingly so that you don’t miss the train. Journey time will be approximately 9-10 Hours
Day 02|27th Sept: We reach Naharlagun by 6:00 in the morning, after which, hop into Tata Sumo for our next leg of journey towards Ziro. It will be a 3-4 hours ride, depending on the condition of the road.
Upon reaching Ziro we head to our campsite “Camp Genesis”. There we freshen up, have lunch, take rest and rejuvenate ourselves for the long night ahead. Stretch your recharged body and walk to the festival ground which is 1 Km away from the campsite. Nexus of music, food, drinks and beautiful people from across the country happens here. Enjoy the evening there.
Day 03| 28th Sept: Wake up after a good night’s sleep. After breakfast, walk around Apatani villages-for those who are interested in seeing unadulterated Apatani ways of life. Taste some locally brewed beer or wine. Enjoy the beauty of the surrounding. Head to the festival ground for round 02. Come back to the campsite, meet new people, enjoy some live music, sip on some beer or sit by the bonfire if you feel cold. Lights out!
Day 04| 29th Sept: Unzip the tent, freshen up, have breakfast. Feeling bloated yet? Okay, let’s go trek to Hakhe Tari or may be Tarin with our local guide. Come back, attend round 03 of music fest. Come back to campsite when you think the barbecue is ready. If you are in the mood, take the stage, sing some songs & let go of yourself.
Day 05| 30th Sept: Sigh! Last day of the fest. Okay! If you are in Ziro and you don’t get to go to the paddy field, you are missing out on something. So it’s fishing day for us. Yes, we will go to the field and catch fish bare hands. That’s it? No, after we catch them, we roast them and we eat them. The rest of the day, do whatever you want to do, it’s the last day, and it’s your day!
Day 06| 1st Oct: It’s a sad new day! Pack up, have lunch and we leave Ziro for Naharlagun at 12:00. The train for Guwahati from Naharlagun leaves at 18:45. But before that, just to keep the memories alive, we will have a photo session with fellow campers and the new friends you made. Exchange cards/phone numbers for future adventures together. And that’s a wrap to the 5 fun-filled amazing days in Ziro.
