BOLENG, Jan 13: The members of Ane Siang Tours & Expeditions and My Tribal Tour had recently embarked on a tour to the unexplored Diba Adi mountain in Siang district.
Diba Adi lies around 2000 meters above the mean sea level between Parong, Dosing, Pareng, Sitang and Riga villages. The place is very favourable for Mithuns (Bosfrontalis) which see them in thousands from the above villages staying in hordes  and feeding on leaves. Tayeng Tamut, a senior citizen from Parong village said it is easier to search for the Mithuns from Diba area because the community has maintained it well to keep their semi-domesticated animals. Managing Director, My Tribal Tour Kalen Pertin stated the place is ideal for adventure lovers and one can go for short-term trekking at least for a two-night stay. He said that tourism in Diba mountain will be a boon for the villagers as it has a huge scope for wildlife tourism, agriculture, horticulture and animal husbandry. "Community tourism in Diba Adi can be a boon for the villagers. It can be an avenue for sustainable income generation for the youths if properly developed", he added.
Tour Guide of Ane Siang Tours & Expeditions Michael Mibang said tourism can flourish in the mountain peak if properly marketed along with proper development of the trekking routes.
