ANGLING AND RAFTING IN THE SUBANSIRI
Subansiri River originates in the Tibetan Himalayas and flows into India via Arunachal Pradesh. It enters India at Taksing (Upper Subansiri district), flowing via the towns of Daporijo and Dumporijo, to enter into the vast wilderness of the lower valleys and finally into Assam at Gerukhamukh, after which it becomes a soul-mate to the mighty Brahmaputra. The Subansiri is three hundred miles long, and with tributaries such as the Sie and Kamla Rivers, it is one of the largest tributaries of the Brahmaputra River.
The sparse human habitation along the lower half of the Subansiri makes it ideal for adventure enthusiasts such as anglers and rafters. The lure of big fighting fishes such as Golden Masher, Trout and the Goonj, can bring out the excitement in any fisherman. The river has volume, flow, class 3 and higher white water rapids, and is set in a breathtaking and exotic forested landscape where warm hearted tribal hill people live with unique traditions and customs.
- Raft down the Subansiri river, surrounded by exotic landscapes.
- Camp at various campsites, at heavenly locations.
- Travel to important angling spots.
- Try your hand at angling, and battle the Golden Masher.
- Spend time bird-watching.
