Kameng River Expedition

The Kameng River which was known as Bhareli River before being called Kameng originates in Tawang district from the glacial lake below snow capped Gori Chen mountain on the India-Tibet border in South Tibet. Kameng flows through Bhalukpong circle of West Kameng District, Arunachal Pradesh and Sonitpur district of Assam, India. It is one of the major tributaries of the Brahmaputra River, joining it at Tezpur, just east of the Kolia Bhomora bridge.

Kameng is a perfect rafting and fishing spot. The Orchid Center at Tipi and Bhalukpong are on the banks of the Bharali and Kameng Rivers.and is good picnic places. The Pakhui Wildlife Sanctuary and the Kaziranga National Park are located near the Kameng River. The Kameng forms the boundary between East Kameng District and West Kameng Districts. It is also the boundary between the Sessa and Eagle nest sanctuaries to its west and the Pakke Tiger Reserve to the east. The Dafla Hills are east and the Aka Hills (home of Aka tribe) are west of the Kameng River.

Adding excitement to the trilogy offerings on the Upper Brahmaputra, Subansari and Lohit River, the Kameng can be a fascinating medium-large volume river trip with surprising consistent rapids, deep gorges and pristine camps and well kept old forests.
