Rain-forest all to yourself !!

What a place its to be, just you and the rain forest jungle and nothing else. Its just like a private safari just for you. The Nameri NP lies on the Tezepur - Tawang road, just before Bhalukpong. We were only tourist at that time and the park ranger were more than happy to show their unexplored raw beauty of the forest. You have to cross the Jia-Bhoreli river. The river is just awesome and a good place for the river rafting (v couldn't do for time constrain). Almost 9/10 km of pure jungle Trail, our forest ranger did provided us all the tit-bits of the forest animals and the birds. On our first watch tower v encountered Elephant with her cute calf barely 100-125 mts from us. Little after another set of Elephant joined them, just beautiful. At other spot v were lucky to spot gooses . Tip. If you are planning for Tawang (from Tezepur) do start early and reach the park by 6- 6. 30. The best time for birds and animal . Do carry water with you, tends to get thirsty in the jungle . Enjoy the forest in its tranquility .
