Wildlife in Arunachal Pradesh : Namdhapa National Park (Project Tiger) - 21

The Namdhapa National Park is famous for the extremely elusive snow leopard and the clouded leopard. Three major rivers drain this area and flow into the Noa Dihing, a tributary of the Brahmaputra. Some of the inhabitants of the park include the gaur or mithun, elephant, Himalayan black bear, taking, the wild goat peculiar to the Patkoi range, musk deer, slow loris, binturong and the red panda. Several primate species like the Assamese macaque and the hoolock gibbon can be found in the area. The inaccessibility of a major portion of the park has helped in preserving the pristine quality of the region. The park is also a Tiger Reserve under Project Tiger.

When to visit: October to March

The government Tourist Lodge, Miao and Rest House at Namchik are the available means of accommodations.
