The Great Indian Elephant Safari - Help Tourism

Chongkham-Wakro-Miao-Nampong are tiny cluster of picturesque villages in Lohit valley surrounded by lofty mountains of Eastern Himalaya and fabled by many snow-fed rivers and pristine forests while the great Namdapha Tiger Reserve and Kamlang Sanctuary are part of the uninhabited contiguous forests of Eastern Arunachal Pradesh, one of the most diverse areas of Indian sub-continent – both naturally and culturally.

Some of the greatest river systems of Northeast India originate from this region, and the circuit offers the best tourism possibilities for the host communities and a great opportunity for the guests to explore the unique landscape, wildlife and culture of this region. Lying in the Mishmi and Patkai hill ranges of the East Himalaya, falling from the Yunan in China, the region shares a common boundary between India and Myanmar (Burma). The area is historically also important as both the Second World War-famed Stilwell Road (Ledo Burma Road) and Pangsau Pass belong to this region, and still carry the remnants of one of the most laborious and ambitious war projects of the Allied Force. The area is dominated by wonderful tribal communities such as the Khamptis, Mishmis, Singphos, Chakmas, Tangsas who have since long chosen to stay in isolation and practiced a way of life that has not changed much with the passage of time. Though the communities have slowly started becoming a part of the modernization, they have been able to retain their cultural and ethnic identity; their custom and tradition.
