Driving south from Jorhat and then across the Brahmaputra on the Kalia Bhomura bridge, you will come to Tezpur or City of Blood , also known at one time as Sonitpur. A very special sight awaits a visitor to the Circuit House in the early mornings: just a few hundred metres away, as the first rays of dawn streak the sky, the river comes alive slowly with boats and vessels of all shapes and sizes- ferries and barges, sail boats and launches and the ubiquitous small nao, or little boat, seen all along the course of this great river.

Ruins of stone temples and a door frame discovered at Da Parbatia, about 5 kms. west of Tezpur, date to the 5th and 6th centuries. Other architectural remains include the Agnigarh and Bamuni hills, the Bhairavi and Mahabhairab temples and the twim tanks of Bar Pukhuri and Padum Pukhuri.

A new attraction is the Cole park, named after a British administrator, which has been recently redeveloped with the participation of local people.

About 50 kms. from Tezpur, off the road to Arunachal Pradesh , drive over a dirt track and creaky bridges to reach the Eco Camp, a unique experiment by the Assam Anglers’ Association and the state’s Forest Department. The Eco Camp is near the Jia Bhoroli river and across the river, on the other side, is the Nameri National Park .

The organizers at the Eco Camp can put together a day or part of a day for white water rafting. The scenery is magnificent: forests on either side, snow-capped mountains in the distance and a rushing river at hand. Visitors can do river rafting, with guided by an expert, and try their hand at casting for the elusive, large and threatened golden Mahseer, the great fish of these waters. This is part of an ecological campaign to save the mahseer- so part of the river is protected and fish need to be caught and then released in an effort to stablise their dwindling numbers. The food at the camp, where visitors live in modern tents, is excellent and on most evenings there is a camp fire with music to brighten the late hours.

The Nameri National Park sprawls over from Assam into Arunachal Pradesh. The best way of traveling here is (as at Kaziranga) on elephants. There are no roads inside the park. The thick jungle, with patches of swamp, is home to a variety of animals and birds. Among the animals you can spot are the powerful Mithun or Indian Bison and the rare White Winged Wood Duck, among the most endangered bird species on earth.

A short distance on the main road to Tawang is Bhalukpong, the entrance to Arunachal Pradesh, where the police check tourist permits.
