One has to scour the thesaurus to come up with an apt description of the colour of the Kameng river (From November to April). We have failed. When night falls it is not the colour that will stay with you but the gurgling Kameng serves as the perfect lullaby. A vigorous day of rafting followed by a stopover at one of the largest orchid research centres in Asia becomes one of the highlights of your weekend. Evenings spent relaxing around the bonfire rejuvenates you perfectly for the week ahead. We haven’t mentioned the range of wildlife on offer that can be spotted, from deer to wild elephants to gaurs and wild boars, a leopard and perhaps even the elusive tiger on your hike through the Pakke tiger reserve.
