Tucked away in the foothills of Mopaya of the Namsangmukh Range at Tirap District and far from the maddening crowd, set in picturesquely sylvan surroundings inside the deep forests of Arunachal Pradesh is a beautiful Ashrama Vidyalaya. The school reminds one of the ancient Gurukul System of India. Its charm is heightened by the flowing Buridhing river which skirts the northern boundary of the campus. It is on the Deomali-Margherita road and about 35 kms away from Naharkatia or from Margherita, Assam. The main Rail Station and market, Tinsukia, Assam is 80 kms away, and the Airport at Dibrugarh, Assam, is at a distance of 110 kms.
Why Ramakrishna Mission came to Tirap of all the places of Arunachal Pradesh is not clear. There may be two reasons: First, Shri K. A. A. Raja, the then Adviser to the Governor of Assam was a lover of Tirap and very much interested in the development of this district. Secondly, even in those days, as early as 1970s, when modern education and thought were unknown in this remote part, Shri Dangwang Lowangdong, Chief of Namsang, correctly understood the importance of modern education which would make his people come at par with others without changing their faith and customs. For this purpose he donated 250 acres of land from the Namsang forest area to the Ramakrishna Mission.
