The Pakhui (Pakke) Sanctuary of Arunachal Pradesh adjoins the Park on its North-Eastern point.

Nameri is a birder's paradise with over 300 species of birds. 

          

           

Nameri National Park is a beautiful place, located in the foothills of the Eastern Himalayas in the Sonitpur district of the state of Assam.

In 1978, the forest was declared as a Reserve forest. Nameri Reserve forest was declared as wildlife Sanctuary in 1985. Total area of the park is about 137 Km2.

Nameri wildlife Sanctuary was declared as National Park in 1998. Total area of the park is about 200 Km2In 1999, Pakhui-Nameri was declared an interstate tiger reserve under Project Tiger.

The area is criss-crossed by the river Jia- Bhoroli and its tributaries namely the Diji, Dinai, Doigurung, Nameri, Dikorai, Khari etc. A few jheels (during the rainy seasons) also dot the area. The inaccessibility and continuity with the neibouring forest areas have helped the wildlife of Nameri to flourish. There is a good prey base in the form of Sambar, Barking deer, Hog Deer, Wild Boar and Gaur. About 3000 domestic cattle also form part of this prey base for Tiger and Leopards.

Nameri and Sonai-Rupai are only Protected Areas in the North Bank of the Brahmaputra in the Civil District of Sonitpur.
