(Burma) on the east and the state of Assam on the south. Part of eastern
Himalayan ranges, it covers 83,743 sq. kms. its climate varies from the
sub-tropical in the south to alpine in the north. Evergreen forest covers
more than 60 percent of Arunachal Pradesh with its numerous turbulent
streams, roaring rivers, deep gorges, lofty mountains, snow clad shining
peaks, hundred and thousands of species of flora and fauna. The state is
proud of having more than five hundred rare species of orchids. Assam is the
home of the rarest species of wildlife, some of which are on the verge of
extinction. Leaving aside a few places in Africa, there is perhaps no part
of the world where such a variety of wildlife exists. Kaziranga is the only

Indian one horned rhinoceros, the Royal Bengal Tiger, elephant, Indian
