Daying Ering Wild Life Sanctuary : Pasighat and its surrounding areas abound in natural beauty and the place has rightly been called as a photographers delight: it is a land to have a rendezvous with Mother Nature in her purest form. Far away from the maddening crowd, the place has the potential to provide solace to the tired and tense people from the outside world.

It is indeed a privilege to see the cane bridges built across river Siang that are a marvel of native engineering. R. Wilcox who visited the area in 1825, remarked about these cane bridges: “We are quite astonished at the skill and labour shown in the construction of cane suspension bridges thrown over at this point: it was such as would do no discredit to the department for similar workd in Calcutta.”

Fishing & Angling

Besides, a lot of places like Yingkiong, Bodak, Siom, etc., provide good spots for Fishing and Angling. The Mahseer is legendary and catches of 20-30 kg are not uncommon.
