In one of the remotest of the regions of India is the undisturbed stretch of forests of Eaglenest National Park along the Tezpur-Bomdila highway in West Kameng District of Arunachal Pradesh. The park is yet to be discovered by the tourists, and its remoteness and inaccessibility will keep it that way for many years to come.

Eaglenest National Park experienced its fame when a new species of bird was discovered in recent years. Still not completely explored and studied, Eaglenest has some exotic species of reptiles and birds that can’t be seen anywhere else in the country. Being contiguous with Bhutan, a lot of birdlife here is similar to what is seen in our neighbouring Buddhist Kingdom. With an entry barrier for foreigners other than Indians who have to pay a steep daily tourist tax of USD200, Eaglenest has the potential to be the alternative to Bhutan for naturalists from the west.

The vegetation here is a curious mix of alpine and tropical forests. The altitude varies significantly across the park, with the lowest part of the park as low as 500 m and the highest above 3000 meters. Rhododendrons and tall coniferous trees can be seen over mountain ridges, while the lower regions have thick evergreen forest. It rains here for most of the year, even in summer to some extent, so one should be ready to brave the weather for the exhilarating wildlife experience that the park provides.

Although it is hard to sight mammals, they do exist in good numbers. Elephants can be seen in the lower regions. Tigers are also known to exist.
