Assam is a state blessed with lush meadows, productive plains, breathtaking hills, a vibrant culture, and unusual wildlife, with Nameri National Park serving as one illustration of the state’s singularity. The national park is excellent at drawing visitors from all across the nation.
The most picturesque national park, Nameri, is situated between the enticing mountains of Arunachal Pradesh and the eastern border of the valley of Assam. Visitors can enjoy spectacular views as the Jai Bhoreli River flows along the national park’s western and southern boundaries. The final remaining refuge for the most endangered species of duck, the white-winged wood duck, is Nameri National Park. The Nameri National Park is home to a small population of winged wood ducks, which should make your visit there quite enjoyable while we all try to photograph the endangered species. As there is still a huge population of elephants in the national park, you will likely encounter them walking about while you are there.
