Site description Mouling NP is located in the Adi Hills of the Eastern Himalayas, adjoining the Siang River Valley. The area is c. 175 km away from Pasighat, the district headquarters. The headquarters of this Park is located at Jengging. The terrain is wholly rugged and mountainous, and the Siang river is an imposing feature of the landscape, carving through high, rugged mountains. The steep slopes are well drained by a number of streams flowing swiftly down to the deep valley of Siang. The entire Park is intersected with numerous rivers and rivulets which ultimately join the Siyum and Siang rivers. These two rivers flow from the east to the southwest side of the area. Other important rivers are Siring, Subong, Krobong and Semong, which originate from the Park. The forests of the area can be divided into the following categories: Tropical Evergreen, Tropical Semi-evergreen, Sub-tropical and Temperate Broadleaf, Bamboo brakes and secondary forest.
