By The River

I had recently shared a post by the name of Barefooted Adventure and I had promised to share a few pictures of the river.


As I had mentioned that at that time I had no camera with me so I went there again another day, at day time to get some snaps.

So here I would like to share a few pictures of the river Jia (Tributary of the Brahmaputra) and of the Brahmaputra itself.

Have a look!

Previously the path I had taken was a little dangerous. So this time I took a different route through the village. They were kind enough to let me walk through their lands.

They live close to the river Jia so this was the best option I had.

As you can see the vegetation is pretty dense, sort of blocks the light from the sky.

There’s lots of trees near the river but mostly bamboos.

This is a small clear trail that leads to the Jia.

This is Jia!

You can clearly see how thick a forest lies near to Jia. It’s dangerous even in here as it gets dark.

The volume of the river is not appreciable if you visit it at a time other than the rainy season.

And I wish I could recreate the sound of the river here. It’s very soothing.


I am sharing two more pictures of the Brahmaputra here. You can also see in these pictures the Dr. Bhupen Hazarika Setu a.k.a Dhola-Sadiya Bridge (under construction) and a few ferry boats far off carrying people and vehicles.

Before the bridge came into being, this was the only means of transport and communication.

I myself was sitting inside a ferry boat while taking these pictures.


All I can say is this river is mighty.

Thank you for reading and have a nice day!
