Ziro is known for its calm and tranquil scenery all round the year. Its because of the clean rice paddy in the valley and evergreen blue pine and Apatani bamboo on the gently hills all around.
Rai is on the way to Pine Grove on the Ziro-Daporijo road. This is where the officers’ quarters of the Border Roads Organization (BRO) are located. Constructed on the slopes of the hill full of pine trees and bamboos, they were the most beautiful houses for us children back those days. They still are beautiful. Beautiful also is the rice paddy and the villages one see looking out into the valley.
Get out to Rai for a leisurely drive and then walk around listening to whistling sounds as the winds blow by the pine leaves. One feels one with nature.
