Namdhapa National Park

The Amazon in the East
Namdhapa is the largest protected area in Eastern Himalaya and an incredible biodiversity hotspot located between Dhapa bum range in the Mishmi Hills and the Patkai range in Eastern Arunachal, bordering Myanmar. With an area of over 1985 sq km, it is also the largest national park in India.
Namdhapa is the only National park where four big felines species such as Tiger, Common Leopard, Clouded Leopard and even Snow Leopard could be found. A wide altitudinal variance from 200m to 4500m gives a maximum diversity of flora and flora – particularly avian species. The Namdhapa National Park, along with its surrounding forests, is among the last large tracts of Wilderness in South Asia, where most areas are yet to be explored.
Its large trees, reaching up to the skies, give it a magical aura, something out of a fairy tale. The vegetation changes with increasing altitude from sub-tropical broad-leaved forests to subtropical pine forests, temperate broadleaved forests, higher elevations, alpine meadows, and perennial snow. Most of the Park area covers the northernmost lowland evergreen rainforests.
A great variety of vegetation zones makes the park home to diverse mammal species. Apart from the four big cat species, the other large predators are dholes (wild dogs), wolves and Asiatic black bears; smaller carnivores include red panda, red fox, Eurasian otter, Oriental small-clawed otter, yellow-throated marten, spotted linsang, binturong, common palm civet, small Indian civet, large Indian civet, masked palm civet, marbled cat, fishing cat, Asiatic golden cat and two species of mongoose.
Among the large animals are elephants, wild boar, forest musk deer, Indian Muntjac, hog deer, sambar, gaur, mainland serow, takin and bharal. There are seven non-human primate species, including stump-tailed macaques and slow loris, hoolock gibbons, capped langurs, Assamese macaques and rhesus macaques.
