About Nameri National Park  

Nestled at the foothills of Eastern Himalayas, Nameri National Park covers an area of 200 Sq. Kms. With river Jia Bhoroli bifurcating the park, it is the most scenic of all the national parks of Assam. Its in the eastern border of Assam in the valley and mountainous Arunachal Pradesh, Nameri is home to some of of the endangered species like white winged wood duck, Sloth Bear, Tiger Leopard, Clouded Leopard, Sambar, Gaur, Indian Wild Dog, four varieties of Hornbill and many other winged species. The other reason Nameri is famous for, is the herds of elephants. The park have a high density of elephant population and due to lessening of forest cover, they sometimes invade human inhabited villages, which have attracted the attention of wildlife conservationists worldwide. Jia Bhoroli river of Assam is famous for the Mahseer angling, since the time of British. This perennial river enters Assam in the plains, near Bhalukpung after swirling through the rugged mountains of Arunachal. Its is home of the Golden Mahseer- The Tiger of Indian rivers and a catch for any angler. H.S. Tomas wrote in his book, 'The Rod In India', ..."Pound to Pound, the Mahseer is superior in sporting qualities to the lordly Salmon of my Native land." Being in the National Park, only game angling (tag and release) is allowed during season from October to April. We really enjoyed our day marked by elephant ride and angling on the river. Our accommodation being in the thatched hut in the Eco Camp; adjacent to the Nameri National Park, the Eco Camp itself offers a golden opportunity to live with the nature.
