REPTILE AND AMPHIBIAN EXPEDITION ARUNACHAL PRADESH
Situated on the northeastern tip of the country, the state of Arunachal Pradesh is a part of Eastern Himalayan. Arunachal Pradesh occupies the largest area (83.743 Sq. Km) in the northeastern region of India, and consists of mountainous ranges sloping to the plains of Assam. The diversity of topographical and climatic condition has favoured the growth of luxuriant forests, which are home to myriad plant and animal forms, and more than 100 reptile species adding beauty to the landscape. Arunachal Pradesh is one of the biologically richest areas in the entire planet. The great altitude and climatic variation has resulted in a bio-diversity that very few places in the world can rival. No wonder then that this unique mix of habitats has resulted in a staggering diversity of reptile species along with other fauna. The expedition takes you through remote hillsides dotted with tribal settlements, surrounded by leech-infested rainforest. Through one of the most inaccessible regions in the world makes this one of the most premier expeditions offered. We ran many successful expeditions on the mountains of Arunachal Pradesh, lead by Mr. Soham Mukherjee , Herpetologist and wildlife biologist.
