Nameri National Park
IndiaGet away from the bustle of overcrowded parks and visit this quiet gem for a more personal interaction with the wilderness in Assam. Spanning an area of 344 square kilometres, it shares its Northern boundary with the Pakke Tiger Reserve of Arunachal Pradesh, a patchwork of lush green forests and wetlands with the clear waters of the Jia Bhoroli River adding to the beautiful views. Jia Bhoroli was once famous for its golden mahseer population and was a popular angling destination, but it has now been banned allowing the fish population to flourish. Murral, goonch, Indian trout and chocolate mahseer are other varieties of fish found here. Apart from elephants and tigers, Nameri also has a sizeable population of avifauna, including the rare and endangered white-winged wood duck. At Nameri there are no jeep safaris. Instead, visitors can walk the nature trail accompanied by an armed guard. Watchtowers overlooking a patch of small pools are good spots to stop and take in the surroundings.... You are likely to spot some green imperial pigeons here. Another way to explore the park and view its water birds is by rafting the mild rapids of the Jia Bhoroli River. It is more a pleasure ride than an adventurous tumble.
