The Brahmaputra River, one of Asia’s mightiest, arrives at India in the mountainous state of Arunachal Pradesh, after having roamed the Tibetan plateau for thousands of kilometers in a totally opposite direction. Locally called the Siang in Arunachal Pradesh, the river turns calm and a magical blue during the dry winters, a ripe time to indulge in the great outdoors; spend your time hiking, rafting, kayaking or simply fishing.
However, it is to note that the future of this great river is concerning, facing threat from mega dam projects and international water politics. We sincerely hope this river remains the unspoilt that it is and the bridges keep hanging.
