  • Trip introduction

    Imagine this: you’re walking along a forest trail through bamboo archways, with twisting ivy and vines winding up the mossy trunks of ancient trees. The forest is filled with a cacophony of the hooting calls of the hornbill and the rustle of leaves. You cross rickety bridges, jump over fallen trunks, and scramble over boulders, while colourful butterflies flutter around you.

    With only 5 hours of trekking each day, this moderate grade trek lets you connect with the enchanting wilderness. Every day you'll set out to explore the magical forest, and you'll return in the evenings to an eco camp where you'll sleep in comfortable tents.

    Destination

    The Namdapha National Park extends for a sprawling 2,000 kms and it is the largest protected forest reserve in the Eastern Himalayas. The forest is cut off from civilization and this untouched sanctuary boasts of a wide diversity of flora and fauna. The scent of exotic flowers, bright butterflies and luxuriant greenery lure you deep into the wilderness. This national park is home to leopards, snow leopards, and tigers along with species like red panda, red fox, yellow-throated marten, elephants, bharals, gibbons and more than 300 species of birds such as hornbills and rare snow-throated babbler birds. The only human inhabitants in this remote jungle are a tribe called the Lisu, who have migrated from Myanmar and you will get a chance to interact with them.

    Destination highlights

    • Trek in one of the most bio-diverse rainforests in India.
    • Photograph the many species of colourful birds and butterflies of the jungle.
    • Camp under the canopy of ancient trees.
    • Chance upon a visit to the village of the Lisu tribe.
    • Jump over fallen tree trunks and scramble on mossy trails on this trek.
    • Stay in a traditional house of the Singpho tribe.
