Arunachal Assam Trip – Itenary & Preparation

Dibrugarh – Kaziranga – Tezpur – Nameri National Park – Bhalukpong – Bomdila – Sela Pass – Tawang – Bumla Pass – Tawang – Dirang – Jorhat – Majuli – Dibrugarh in April, 2014

 Our trip to Arunachal & Assam was preplanned. And based on the research, we planned following itenary for 8 days:

Day 1: Delhi – Dibrugarh – Kaziranga Stay

 Day 2: Kaziranga National Park – Tezpur – Nameri Eco Camp   Stay

 Day 3: Nameri National Park river rafting – Bhalukpong – Bomdila – R R Hill – Monastery – Bomdila Stay

 Day 4: Bomdila – Dirang – Sela Pass – Jaswant Garh – Jang Fall – Tawang – Tawang Craft Centre – War Memorial – Tawang Stay

 Day 5: Tawang – Bumla Pass – Tawang Monastery – Dirang Stay

 Day 6: Dirang – Seesa – Agnigarh – Jorhat Stay

 Day 7: Jorhat – Nimati Ghat – River Ferry – Kamalabari ferry Ghat – Majuli Satras – Kamalabari ferry Ghat – River Ferry – Nimati Ghat – Dibrugarh Stay

 Day 8: Dibrugarh – Dibrugarh Airport – Delhi Airport

 After finalizing itenary and dates, first we booked flight tickets from Delhi to Dibrugarh & return. Then we contacted drivers and travel agencies for Scorpio taxi for 7 days from Dibrugarh to Tawang & back. Finally one driver agreed to book taxi for Rs. 2500/- per day for vehicle + Diesel +Driver’s food & stay. When I contacted this driver, one day before reaching Dibrugarh, he refused to come with us due to personal reasons. Since I was having contact numbers of other travel agencies, I contacted them and booked taxi (though per day rate increased by Rs. 200/-). After reaching Dibrugarh, I came to know that it is Bihu festival in Assam and that was the main reason of shortage of drivers. Mr. Bijoy, our taxi driver was a good person who adjusted according to our travel plan. Next issue was to book tourist lodge and hotels. I decided to use Assam & Arunachal tourism tourist lodges. The phone service in Arunachal was not working properly. I was able to book Aranya Tourist Lodge at Kaziranga; Nameri Eco Camp at Nameri National Park and Tourist Lodge at Tawang. I was not able to book at Bomdila & Dirang. We have not booked for Jorhat & Dibrugarh, due to our flexible itenary. We got good accommodation at these places on the spot. Inner line permit (ILP) is required for entry in Arunachal for all Indians. For ILP, Identity & address proof and two passport size photo are required. We planned to obtain ILP at Bhalukpong.

  1. Hi Mr. Jain, your Arunachal Assam trip has become quite helpful to me. But you have not mentioned the name of the car rental service agencies and I also wish to know the contact numbers of those agencies. With thanks
