Namdapha National Park, Arunachal Pradesh
On the eastern-most tip of India lies one of its largest national park and tiger reserves. The Namdapha National Park, covering an area of 2,000 sq km, is among the last great remote wilderness in Asia. It is situated in the beautiful valley of the Noa-Dihing river and extends into the Myanmar territory. The area lies close to the Indo-Myanmar China tri-junction. Forests are contiguous across the international boundary with Myanmar, with several adjoining protected areas, including the recently declared Hukawng Valley Tiger Reserve. Its unique geographic location and habitat, ranging from warm tropical plains to icy Himalayan highlands, is what makes Namdapha home to species and tribal cultures that cannot be found anywhere in the world.
