The Homestay located in picturesqueue Mechuka Valley Village will provide comfortable and cozy Homestay living. The Homestay also offers a full fledged Self-Service kitchen which guests can use if they preferred besides home cooked food that the Homestay offers to its guests at nominal cost. The valley is a picture of serenity, with striking waterfalls and grassland slopes all over. One of its landmarks is the Samtem Yongcham monastery, which is on a hill overlooking the valley, and is over 400 years old.

Mechuka is located in the West Siang district, on the Northern parts of Arunachal Pradesh, not very far from the Chinese border at an altitude of more than 1800 metres.
It is 180 kms from Aalo (also spelt Along.. I will use both the spellings alternately) which is 100 kms from Pasighat which is around 30 kms from Murkongselek. Silapathar to Aalo is more than 140 KMs. This may sound confusing, so have look at the maps.
You can get into one of the shared Tata Sumos from either Silaptahar or Pasighat to Aalo. From there onward the route is the same till Mechuka. You will have to halt at Aalo and hop into another shared car the next morning. As mentioned before, if you are coming from Dibrugarh on the Southern Banks of Brahmaputra, you will have to cross the river on a ferry. Eventually you will find your way to Silapathar and then you can continue as mentioned above.
It takes around 8 hours to reach Mechuka from Aalo. It takes around 5 hours from Pasighat to Aalo. It should take around 6-7 hours from Silapathar to Aalo.
But to reach Pasighat, you have to get some local bus or shared tempos from Murkongselek (the last railhead). Just outside the station you will find electric Rickshaws that will take you to nearby “Ruksin Gate” from where you will get shared cars to Pasighat and it will take anything between 45 mins to 1 hour. Somewhere in between, at a checkpost, your Inner Line Permits will also be checked.
Mechuka is a not very vast plateau on the banks of the river Siyom. It has hard to image such a plain stretch after a steep climb along the winding roads. The geography is unique and so are the people. Also, if you are a biker, this will be one of your most challenging rides. Do note that while Mechuka has become the accepted spelling, the complete spelling is Menchukha and it can be seen etched on one of the hills.
