We can get a chance to set up our camp during dusk to enjoy the magnificent beauty of immaculate beaches. We also intend to raft down to Moving Madness, so that we can enjoy a wonderful day full of fulfilling afternoon siestas, an engaging reading session and complete relaxation. I also hope to finally fulfill my cherished dream of learning how to kayak. I look forward to spend another wonderful day with a fitting dissidence to our supposedly happening trip by sailing down the greatness of this river, and immerse ourselves in the beauty of beaches along with the nearing settlements. I presume I shall love to compare our journey with a kaleidoscope whose different and arresting images seem to bewitch us with every passing moment.
I would love to begin our journey with a ferryboat ride at Dibrugarh that shall help me measure the length and enjoy the beauty of splendid waters in the almighty river Brahmaputra. The curvy and fresh ride across the beautiful, yet ferocious river shall span the length of the densely forested river valley, all the way from the plains of Pasighat to our starting point. The invigorating ride shall take us through the secluded and mysterious hillsides, perfectly dotted with ethnic settlements in clearings. These shall be fittingly bounded by dense rainforests, comprising of all kinds of flora. I am personally awed by the innumerable species of ferns, palms and orchids contained by these rainforests. We will observe bamboo and cane bridges built by the local ethnic groups; and village visits will add to the exciting experience.

From here we shall set out for another 2 days long journey along river Siang. We believe that our journey shall be quite an interesting one, despite its length.

We hope to be completely immersed in the holiday mood, with some challenging expeditions awaiting us for this day. We are all excited for a raft down the Pango rapid, which will enable us to enjoy the captivating sights of the Ningguing and Marmong gorges. We are irresistibly drawn to this rafting expedition, owing to the beautiful, remote wild jungle steep valleys we shall pass during this raft. Weve heard that these steep and impenetrable forests rise into oblivion on each side past the big rapid at Rikor and Zebra Rock rapid. The best part that we are looking to cherish is the overnight stay at a camp that we shall set up above a Class 6 rapid in Cherring.
Day 8: Raft cherring at Yinkeong ot Alubadi
