Namdapaha is one place which I love to visit again and again. Hence, IT Nature Club has been planning the trails to Namdapha every alternate year since the last few years. Each visit has been unique and on every visit rewarded me with many lifers. This year the group consisted of experts Prashant Srivastava,Ajit Rao, amateurs Roopa, Gowrishankar and myself.The local SEACOW co-ordinated our stay and trail. Budyut the ever smiling and excellent spotter accompanied us throughout this trip.

Myself and Gowrishankar flew from Bangalore to Dibrugarh by Air-India. The flight was eventless and enjoyed the hot hot breakfast served in the flight. Gowri was doubly happy as his seat got upgraded to business class.Naturally he was happy about the good start to his first journey to Arunachal Pradesh. We met other at Dibrugarh and hired a taxi to reach our hotel Ballerina. Hotel Ballerina is an upscale hotel of the region with facilities expected of any good deluxe hotel.

Next day early morning our vehicle was ready to take us to Miao the entry point to Namdapha.We stopped at many places for birding. A little water body on the outskirts of Digboi gave us many spottings.

Of course we did have liesurey breakfast



We went for a riverside walk in the evening.And spotted many birds. But could not spot any Ibisbills which was our target  as we were told that they have arrived this winter too.
