Tuting is a charming little town surrounded by dense forests and mountains, at a distance of close to 300 kms from district headquarters Yingkiyong in the Upper Siang district in Arunachal Pradesh. The triangle Gelling-Tuting-Singha constitutes the “Pemako Zone” of Buddhist Pilgrimage with small hamlets of the lamas amidst serene natural lakes. The Monasteries and Buddhist shrines have Sakyamuni Buddha and Guru Padmasambhava statues and other traditional artifacts of the vajrayana form of Buddhism. Most of the local Adi tribe people practice the religion of Donyi Polo (Worship of Siun & Moon) which is quite similar to the Chinese Yin & Yang practice.
