A charming and quaint traditional house in the heart of the Doimara village in the Arunachal Foot Hills near Missamari, the Ga Jiwu Yam (Our Own Home) Homestay is one of those houses where guests will feel welcomed the moment they enter it. Located below the Eaglenest Wildlife Sanctuary in the Himalayan foothills of West Kameng District, the home stay is situated in one of the most peaceful places in Arunachal Pradesh. It is also the most budget friendly homestay in the village and one of the most cost effective guesthouses in Arunachal Pradesh. The place is primarily made up for wildlife lovers, researchers, ornithologists, solo travellers, biker groups, couples and for people who are looking for some quiet time in the nature. With complimentary breakfast, gardens, trees, animal farms, the guesthouse offers peace and tranquillity all the time.
