The Siang River, as it is called in Arunachal Pradesh, is one of the mightiest of rivers in Asia. Known as Yarlung Tsangpo in Tibet, Brahmaputra in India, and Jamuna in Bangladesh, the 2840 km long river travels for 1600km in high Tibet, before taking a mysterious U-turn where it forms the world’s deepest gorges, and entering Arunachal Pradesh in India. The most charming references for this water body can be found in Buddhism, where each and every element the river crosses through is regarded as extremely sacred and are an actual part of Vajra Yogini’s body, as the land of Pemako.
