Namdapha National Park
Tucked away in the northernmost state of Arunachal Pradesh is the Namdapha National Park.
The majestic gaur or mithun, elephant, Himalayan black bear, takin, the wild goat peculiar to the Patkoi range, musk deer, slow loris, binturong and the red panda are all found here.
The predators include the tiger, leopard, the rare snow leopard and clouded leopard in the higher reaches of the hills. A number of primate species are to be seen in the Park, such as the Assamese macaque, pig-tailed macaque, stump-tailed macaque and the distinctive hoolock gibbon.
Hornbills, jungle fowl and pheasants flap their noisy way through the jungle, which harbors other colorful bird species. The inaccessibility of the greater part of the Park has helped to keep the forests in their pristine state.
This is also a Tiger Reserve under Project Tiger.
