Daying Ering Wildlife Sanctuary (13 km from Pasighat) is spread over a cluster of river islands. A cruise through the Siang River is the only way to reach the sanctuary. One can reach there by cruising the Siang River. The unique ecosystem of this sanctuary has made it a natural habitat for different species of birds including migratory birds like cranes, wild ducks, storks, waterfowls, etc, which come from Siberia and Mongolia from September to February every year. The sanctuary is a veritable delight to amateur and professional ornithologists.
The forest islands are home to hog deer, hispid hare, and wild buffalo, Sambars, elephants and other rainforest macro and microfauna.
Siang river, which originates from Tibet and forms the main flow of the mighty Brahmaputra, is a socio-cultural poetry with a unique personification of its own.
Many rapids on the Siang river have been a prime attraction for River rafting and water sports. The challenging expedition begins at Tuting in Upper Siang. The river runs through the gorges of Nigguing and Marmon, both, with their thick forest covering, reaching up to the heavens.
It negotiates the finest big volume white water in an area, which is often rated as one of the most inaccessible in the world-just getting to the jump-off point takes a journey of four days by boat and jeep. The self-contained 180-km run from Tuting to Pasighat includes a 10-mile stretch of massive rapids with names such as Moing Madness, Zebra Rock and Pulsating Palìsi. But there are calmer moments on the river where one can just float along with the current. The adrenaline rush is high and you’ll be able to dine out for months on the tales you take back home. The abundance of rich aquatic life has attracted anglers again and again.
