Khonsa, a lovely place that evokes tremendous excitement is located in Tirap district, Arunachal Pradesh. Plain land is very hard to find and the topography is made up of deep forests, glittering gorges, Rivers, big and small mountains. Also honored with pleasant and salubrious climate, it fascinates and allures naturists and adventure lovers from the close by locations to visit over and over again.
One of the most interesting explorations is the visit the Khonsa waterfalls. You feel out of the world as you get into the thick jungles with the help of the local tribes nodding to the sweet singing of the birds, the brushing of the tree leaves against your face will give you a feel as if the forest is acknowledging you for visiting it. After a trek in the narrow and quite dangerous path you will get to see the cool and illuminating waters jump from a great height, which is a good repayment for your effort. Tiger, bear, barking deer, red panda and musk deer are some of the animals seen.
The small streams and brooks provides bountiful freedom and luck to set up tents close to enjoy angling in the fresh waters and cook fresh fish in an open tranquil environment.
The tribal art and handicrafts are displayed in the Khonsa museum. When you visit Khonsa never miss a chance to watch the Jaam and Kiko Khoam which are the popular sport if the local tribes.
