Northeast, the beauty of northeast lies in its simplicity. I was brought up in Assam, hence the love for the place. I want to explore Northeast India, so when I found some like minded people, we decided on Arunachal Pradesh, to start with.
Day 1: Beginnings
Start of journey: 11 am
Lunch Stop: Tezpur
Reached the Destination : 4 pm at Bhalukpong
Night Stay: Prashanti Lodge at Bhalukpong
One fine morning, in the month of October, just after Durga Puja, we started from Guwahati. Refreshed by the Assam cha(tea) and goja, we transferred to another wonderful historical place called Tezpur. After a heartful lunch at Tezpur, we traveled through the wonderful forest of Nameri. I remember enjoying every bit of the road with my head popped outside the window to enjoy the fresh air, unknown to the fact that what lies ahead in the journey is going to mark an impression of a lifetime. We reached Bhalukpong just before sunset.
Bhalukpong is a small town in the Assam-Arunachal border.
Prashanti Lodge of Assam Tourism Department in Bhalukpong, is the apt place to start with,it is at a stunning location, just beside the Kameng River, a tributary of the Brahmaputra. The full moon night and the sound of the river amidst the silence of the woods is all you need. Our curiosity and excitement knew no bounds as just at the other end of the river was Arunachal Pradesh, the land of dawn lit mountains.
