The Changlang district is located in Arunachal Pradesh, located south of the Lohit district and north of the Tirap district.

Changlang is populated by tribal groups, namely Tutsa, Tangsa, Nocte, Singpho and the Lisu. Sizeable communities of the Tibetans[1], Bodo Hajong and Chakma refugees do exist. The Tibetan refugees are clustered at Choephelling Tibetan Refugee settlement in Miao, which was set up in 1976 has hosts a population of 2200.[2]

There are reports of Naga militants (NSCN) infiltrating into Changlang and Tirap, frequently carrying out campaigns to encourage the locals to make Changlang as part of Nagaland, an offer which many of the locals rejected, including the Naga Wancho and Nocte.[3] Frequently, violence is imposed on the locals, [4] and there are reports of cases of harassing the local populace and forcing them to convert to Christianity.[5][6]

The Namdapha Tiger reserve is located in Miao town of this district. The other places to visit are World War II cemetery in Jairampur, Indo-Myanmar border town Nampong and Pangsau Pass. Another place of interest is Bordumsa where the rich culture of the Tais and Singpho exist.
