The areas north of the Brahmaputra are full of possibilities for adventurous treks in the foot steps of the pioneering explorers of the nineteenth century. Much of the middle hills of Arunachal Pradesh has never seen tourists far less trekking groups. Join in the spirit of adventure and join on a voyage of discovery.

Experienced trekking crews can manage your day to day needs and the first class equipments will ensure that you travel in comfort and safety.

As many of the treks into the interior of Arunachal Pradesh will be exploratory it is essential that intending trekkers are fit and, ideally, have some previous trekking experience.

For a less arduous trek then the jungle of Namdapha National Park could be the destination for you. Namdapha is one of the few parks where day to day trekking is possible. Travel the well established routes and camp under canvas at developed camp grounds each night. To go on foot through the jungle, having plenty of opportunity to view the wildlife, is a memorable experience shared by very few travellers.

Angling
The river Jia Bhoroli, Kapili and Manas are the best places for angling. The Jia Bhoroli river is home to the fierce game fish, the Golden Mahseer, or tiger of the Himalayan rivers.

An annual Angling competition is regularly held at Jia Bhoroli where a number of anglers both from outside the state as well as abroad participate every year. Angling is so popular a sport here that there is an organised body by the name 'Assam Bhoroli Anglers Association' which organises this sport in the month of November every year in collaboration with the State Forest Department. Eco Camp situated at the fringes of the Nameri National Park is an avid camper's ideal getaway.

River Cruise
The turbulent rivers, the mystic blue hills, the savage terrains and serene countryside beckon the adventurers to Assam. Challenge the Brahmaputra, one of the four largest rivers in the world and cruise down the mystic river from Ninging to Dhubri.

Boat Racing
Boat racing is a very popular sport of the state. People very often organise boat racing during festive occasions at places like Hajo, Saulkuchi, Barpeta, Guwahati etc. The involvement of the masses in this sport can be compared with the snake-boat racing in Kerala.

River Rafting
The mighty river Brahmaputra and its turbulent tributaries like Manas, Jia Bhoroli and Kapili offer immense scope for River Rafting. The fiery rapids in these rivers fuel the spirit of adventure in you


Golf
Most of the tea gardens of Assam have golf courses attached to them. All of them are 9 hole golf courses except for Digboi which is an eighteen hole course.A stay in the tea garden, playing golf and driving through tea country is an unforgettable experience.

Mountaineering & Trekking
Assam's topography makes her an ideal destination for trekkers, mountaineers and rock climbers. The hills, in particular, the North Cachar Hills and Karbi Hills are ready to receive tourists for trekking and mountaineering.There is a recognized trekking route in both the districts.

There is also a rock hill in Morigaon District known as "Elephant Rocks" which offer ample scope for Rock Climbing. The Simhasana Hill of Karbi Anglong is also famous for rock climbing. The main city of Assam, Guwahati, is surrounded on three sides with beautiful hills.


Mountain Biking
The hilly terrain offers a very good challenge to Mountains Bikers. The Assam Tourism Department in collaboration with The Assam Tourism Development Corporation and other adventure organizations have organized several bicycle and motorbike rallies in and outside the state. Several foreign groups including individual tourists have visited the state for the same.
