Pakhui Wildlife Sanctuary—kameng arunachal pradesh L1040072


The Adventure Begins Here
At a distance of 50kms from Assam’s Tezpur Airport, Bhalukpong is one of the major entry points to Western Arunachal. This small border town once used to be the territory of King Bhaluka, an ancient ruler of the region. Built between the 10 and 12th centuries A.D and situated on a hillock of 300 ft height at the foothills of West Kameng district, the ruins of the fort here have significant archaeological values.
This place has an epic reference to Mahabharata king Bana. Lying beside a dense forest of Pakke Wildlife Sanctuary, Bhalukpong is often used by the bird watchers for its immense variety of rare birds, including the White-winged Wood duck and Great Pied Hornbill, apart from large mammals like tigers and elephants.
The Kameng River, which is affectionately called 'Jiavorli', or ‘heart’s pleasure’, flows through Bhalukpong and drains into Assam’s Bramhaputra River. Bhalukpong is well known for its serenity. It is also a great place for rafting, angling, trekking, and hiking. A famous scenic drive to the Sella Pass and Tawang – close to China Border originated from here.
