Get inEdit

From Tezpur you can hire a private cab for anything between ₹600-800. Budget travelers can take a shared taxi to Balipara, around 20 km from the Tezpur ASTC (bus stand), for ₹15 per head. From Balipara, there are another 15 km. You can either take Itanagar-Bomdila bus that passes through Balipara around 11AM to drop you on the Nameri bus stop (you will see "Bhalukpong 22 km" milestone there) or can negotiate with one of the numerous shared taxis for a drop on Nameri bus stop. A dusty road leads to the park, and no public transport runs in this stretch of 2.3 km.

DoEdit

River raftingEdit

The route is around 18 km (duration 2-3 hr) on the quiet and serene Jia Bhoroli river. You can also combine your rafting with a picnic (duration 4-5 hr in this case) on the banks of Jia Bhoroli.

Jungle walkEdit

A jungle walk can be done along with an armed guard (mandatory as per government regulations) who can also second as a guide. The walk is for approximately 3 hr, which include walking on the banks of Jai Bhoroli, crossing the river on boat, and then completing a circuit inside the jungle. It's recommended to do this early in the morning, as there is a better chance to spot wild animals, although chances of spotting a tiger are usually extremely low.
