Yupia is located about 22 kms from the capital of the state, Itanagar in the north-eastern part of Arunachal Pradesh. Due to proximity to Itanagar, the destination can be easily accessed.

Yupia is mostly inhabited by Nishi (belongs to the Indo-Mongoloid group) and the Mikir (migrants from the neighbouring state of Assam) tribes. Different festivals belonging to these tribes are celebrated within the destination, which is a major attraction.

Other than festivals, there are numerous historical and natural attractions in Yupia with pristine and unalloyed Himalayan beauty.
