NAMSAI, Apr 7: Chief Minister Pema Khandu today flagged off the Trans Arunachal Drive 2021 which is an initiative to boost adventure tourism in Arunachal Pradesh, here from Namsai’s iconic landmark, the Kongmu Kham or Golden Pagoda. 
While welcoming the participants comprising eminent journalists, bloggers and tour operators who are taking part in the 12-day, 2500 km drive along the Trans Arunachal Highway from Namsai to Tawang, Khandu hoped the initiative will serve in highlighting the state’s tourism potential. “Once you go back, I believe you will carry pleasant memories and unforgettable experiences and become the ambassadors of Arunachal Pradesh in your respective fields,” he said while thanking Miss World Japan 2016 Priyanka Yoshikawa and top business leaders representing JK Tyre and Mahindra Adventure who are taking part in the trip. Expressing optimism the CM said the event will put forward Arunachal as a major driving destination. 
Organized by the state Department of Tourism, the event is being managed by Motorsports Club of Arunachal. The trip has being undertaken by Mahindra Adventure with specially-prepared adventure vehicles along with JK Tyre and a host of other associate sponsors. “We hope to bring the tourism industry back on its feet after the unprecedented 2020 and provide a memorable experience to the members. 
The entire state is a perfect ground for adventure sports and has emerged as the favourite driving destination in the Northeast with travellers joining from different states,” Khandu said. The expedition will traverse through the high altitudes of the Himalayas cutting across the entire length of the state covering sub-tropical forests and will also touch the remote locations like Dong and Geku to culminate on April 18 in Tawang.
