Subjects : The Valley, not yet reached by tourism if not in a very content, is very interesting from the point of view of natural beauties and is inhabited by the tribe of Apatani, a tribe that has maintained their ancestral traditions longer than others, Between this rient The practice of "Tani", namely to insert large Black Caps in the nostrils of women, as soon as they had the first menstrual cycle, in order to harness them and preserve them from abductions of the belligerous tribes nearby. The practice ceased during the years ' 70 of the last century, but all the elderly bear prominently the consequences still. In fact, precisely this women are the subject, unique in its characteristics, of greater photographic interest. The Nature, the animals, the rural life are the other themes of photographic interest deserving of attention.

(In the valley there is a specific dialect). I on the spot had my Indian guide and a local guide who obviously spoke such dialect (the costs are relatively low).
