Since this is a multi-day trek that takes unmarked trails and goes through varied terrains, it is best to do it with a trekking agency. Also getting to the ‘basecamp’ involves driving long distances from Dibrugarh, and if you are not a local, this would mean hiring your own vehicle. To avoid the hassle, take the services of a trekking agency.
Two companies organise the Namdapha trek in India: Kipepeo, which charges ₹34,000 (+ 5% GST) per person, and Greener Pastures, that varies its rates according to how many people are booking, but usually charges around ₹36,000 per person.
When to do it
The trek is only open from November to February, and any of these four months is good to tread the trail.
You need nine days to complete the Namdapha Trek. Though the actual trekking trail starts from Deban and takes five days to cover, two days are needed to get from Dibrugarh to Deban, and back. Once you get to Deban, this is the route you will follow:
Deban – Hornbill – Firmbase camp – Embeong – Baloo Khat – Deban
Start the trek by getting from Dibrugarh to Deban.
