Nameri National Park, located in the Sontipur District and nestled in the foothills of the Eastern Himalayas, is the most picturesque of Assam’s National Parks, covering an area of 200 square kilometres. Nameri shares its northern boundary with the Arunachal Pradesh Pakhui Wildlife Sanctuary, and together they cover over 1000 square kilometres of semi-evergreen, moist deciduous forest with cane and bamboo brakes and narrow strips of open grassland along rivers Jia Bhoroli and its tributaries Diji, Dinai, Doigurung, Nameri, Dikori, Khari, and others. After going through Arunachal Pradesh’s harsh terrain, the perennial river Jia Bhoroli enters Assam’s lowlands and divides via the Nameri National Park. Since the period of the British, the Jia Bhoroli river has been famed for Masheer angling.
The North Bank Landscape includes the Eco-region, which is an Eastern Himalayan Mega Biodiversity hotspot. It is one of the world’s most abundant places in terms of Plant Functional Type and Plant Functional Complexity. The tropical monsoons have an impact on the area.
Some of the endangered species found in Nameri are the white winged wood duck, Sloth Bear, Tiger Leopard, Clouded Leopard, Sambar, Gaur, Indian Wild Dog, four forms of Hornbill, and many more winged species. The elephant herds are another reason Nameri is famous. The elephant population in the park is dense.
The park’s floral riches is incredibly diversified and an important aspect of its ecology. Tree species that are widely found include Bombax ceiba, Dalbergia sisoo, Sterculia villosa, Trewia nudiflora, Zizypphus jujuba, Litsaea polyantha, and others. Among the non-aquatic grassland species, Phragmites karka, Arundo donax, Imperata cylindrical, and Saccarum stand out.
The Nameri Tiger Reserve, which is home to the White Bellied Beron and the White Winged Duck, is also a fantastic bird viewing site. Lesser racket-tailed Drongos, Beautiful Nuthatch, Grey-headed Fishing Eagle, Jerdon’s Baza, and a slew of other tough species can be expected.
Nameri National Park is Assam’s second Tiger Reserve. The park, which covers an area of 137 square kilometres, was designated as a sanctuary in September 1985. It was designated as a National Park on November 15, 1998.
It is 181 kilometres from Guwahati and 35 kilometres from the town of Tezpur. In reality, Tezpur is the closest town and airport to the Nameri National Park.
