And for the more adventurous, rafting on the Jia Bhoroli is a must.
The fiery rapids fuel the spirit of adventure in you with rubber rafts taking you downstream. Rafters from far and wide, mainly foreign tourists, spend hours.
"I have come all the way just to get a thrill of the spirited rapids at Jia Bhoroli," said Michael Rogers, a British tourist. "We had lunch in one of the small river islands during the course of the rafting."
Close to Nameri is Bhalukpung, a small village bordering Arunachal Pradesh and located on the foothills of the Himalayas.
This small border township is something like a paradise on earth with nature oozing with beauty beckoning you to her midst.
There are legends associated with name Bhalukpung - "Bhaluk" in Assamese means bear and "pung" is a well. It is said that sloth bears and Himalayan black bears frequented the township at least three to four times a day to drink salty water from a hot spring. The hot spring still is an attraction for tourists.
Said Rudolph Walters, an American angler: "This is a circuit that adventure tourists and wildlife lovers must include in their itinerary. I bet nobody would go disappointed from here."
