Another popular destination around Jorhat is Kokilamukh. It gets people in droves. The way is full of dirt but it does not stop people from coming here. The people drive in onto the exposed river bank, some get stuck and spend their entire time trying to get out of the bog, others pitch their tents, cook food, dance the Bihu, do a boat ride, eat and then go back home tired, dusty but satisfied. Now the pictures of Kokilamukh.

Another interesting destination is the Saikhowa Park. it is known for the elusive river dolphin. We spotted a few but the glimpses are so fleeting and unexpected that are very hard to capture on camera. The place is about 20 kms from Dibrugarh and is also the transit point towards the Northern Bank of the Brahmaputra. The place is also home to a large number of migratory birds. The best time to come is in winters or if you are very interested in Riverine Life, visit it during monsoons. The pictures:

With the parents here for a month, it makes for some hectic weekend plans and trips so as to cover as much area as possible. This weekend we did a short trip to the Parsuram Kund, in Arunachal Pradesh. The story:
Lord Parsuram after beheading his mother could not detach the axe from his hand and after a dip here in a pool of water the axe came off. He threw the axe and where the axe fell the mountain split and out flowed the Lohit river.

The place is beautiful with tall mountains and the flat plains. The journey was was done in two days with a night stop at Dinjan but was covered in a single day on the return leg. The roads in Assam are beautiful and once you enter Arunchal continue to be good tarred ones till Tengapaani. Thereafter, till well beyond Chongkham they area royal mess. At the spot we ventured into a deep forest trail and landed onto a big sandy river bed dotted with large boulders and a calm serene river flowing by. But just after about 20 meters the same river turns into gushing torrents with rapids.
Places to see enroute: Namsai reserve forest, Kamlang wildlife sanctuary, Golden Pagoda at Tenga paani, Buddhist Vihar at Chongkham. The route log and time and odo readings are as under:

Beautiful evocative land. Thanks for the very nice pics.

I suppose this is about the eastern most part of India that one can drive to.

Smile b-e-a-u-t-i-f-u-l

Great pictures and a beautifully composed travelogue - bravo

The travelogue brought back a flood of memories of the northeast - where I spent more than two years. Great vistas, simple people and unspoiled nature in all her glory. Arunachal, for sure is the hidden gem amongst the seven sisters - pristine and as yet unspoiled. If the roads are done up and the connectivity and hospitality options improved (with the archaic inner line permits done away with IMO), we will see the intrepid traveller, and then some, flocking to explore the exquisitely beautiful trails, jungles, valleys and rivers that the land of the rising Indian sun has to offer!

...once again - great travelogue !

Cheers !
