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.
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!
