Where and Why

Another aloof place as they call it; where the wilderness lurks one moves in the beauty of the nature. The nearest station is Diburgarh from where you can take the road to Tezu via Tinsukia. A zig zag road, NH37 which leads its way to Dhaka via Tezu. You will see the Mishimi Hills on your way to Tezu, the sceneric beauty following you all the way to Tezu.

Begin your journey from Mishimi Hills. Standing there admist the wild you will see the hills covered with lush vegetation, tropical evergeenery and the pine forests. Capture this view in your memories or in your camera.This place is not much habitated and there arent much of a facilities. Moreover it pours here without a warning! The Mishimi people live a life of the past, cultivating Jhum, opium poppy and devote their time looking after Mithun (Wild Cow). They dote on the beast but also sacrifice them for puja (prayer).

Not far from here is the Lohit District. Populated by Tai Khampi people, this place is filled with Burman and Thailand culture. Gilded Stupas and monasteries dot the Khampi sentiments. There were a few little who could speak English (take a Guide along with you). Enjoy your journey as you move past the lush greenery.
