• Trip introduction

    Hike unexplored trails in the Namdapha National Park, spot a range of rare birds and animals, taste the aromatic tea of Assam, visit the bird sanctuary of the Dibru Saikhowa National Park, trek alongside the Namdapha River on a rocky bed, visit the ethnic Lisu natives at the Embeong village, go camping in the midst of a rainforest and sleep in tents listening to the beating heart of nature.

    On this 10-day Namdapha trek, you'll spot rare, avian beauties like the snowy-throated babbler, the rusty-bellied shortwing and see the native wildlife like red pandas and hoolock gibbons. You'll have one thrilling adventure after another, as you visit deep corners of a rainforest, so dense and so overgrown that it'll remind you of the tropical rainforests of the Amazon.


    The Namdapha National Park, in the north-eastern state of Arunachal Pradesh, is a lesser-known, non-commercial destination for a trek. The national park is dissected by several water bodies like the Noa Dihing River and the Namdapha River, giving rise to a thick and sprawling rainforest.

    Apart from hundreds of species of birds like hornbills and woodpeckers, local wildlife like deer and elephants, tiny insects like butterflies and moths, the rainforest has also reported several sightings of leopards and tigers. With gigantic, moss-laden trees and overgrown shrubs covering acres and acres of land, the muddy trails in the remote national park are entirely cut off from civilization. The mountain range of Mt. Dapha Bum, with snow-covered peaks rising in the distance, offer enticing views from specific vantage points along the trails.
