In Siang district, there is also a town called Pangin, which is the headquarters. It is located at a distance of about 60 km from Pasighat, the earlier district Head Quarter by road. The settlement is at the junction point where River Siyom meets River Siang.
It is the home of the Adi tribe of Arunachal Pradesh. Siang District is the 21st district of Arunachal Pradesh State, India. This district was created by bifurcating the West Siang and East Siang districts of Arunachal Pradesh consisting of 32-Rumgong-Kaying.
The name of the district is derived from the mighty Brahmaputra River, which in Arunachal Pradesh is known as the Siang river. It is predominantly inhabited by the Adi tribe of Arunachal Pradesh.
