Namdhapa National Park :
Tucked away in the northernmost state of Arunachal Pradesh is the
Namdapha National Park. Three major rivers drain this area and flow into the Noa
tributary of the Brahmaputra. The Park largely inaccessible has diverse habitats and flora
and fauna that are typical of this area. The majestic gaur or mithun, elephant, Himalayan
black bear, taking the wild goat peculiar to the Patkoi range, musk deer, slow
binturong and the red panda are all found here. The predators include the tiger, leopard,
the rare snow leopard and clouded leopard in the higher reaches of the hills. A number of
primate species are to be seen in the Park, such as the Assamese macaque, pig-tailed
macaque, stumptailed macaque and the distinctive hoolock gibbon. Hornbills, jungle fow and
pheasants flap their noisy way through the jungle, which harbours other colourful bird
species. The inaccessibility of the greater part of the Park has helped to keep the
forests in their pristine state. This is also a Tiger Reserve under Project Tiger.
