Bhoroli River is one of the main northern tributaries of Brahmaputra River. Jia Bhoroli River is known as Kameng River before it enters Assam. It originates from a glacial lake that is below the snow capped Gori Chen Mountain in Tawang on the India-Tibet border in South Tibet.
The river enters the state of Assam through the planes near Bhalukpong, after flowing down from its source from the glacial lake, through the mountains of Arunachal Pradesh. It flows through the Bhalukpong circle of West Kameng District of Arunachal Pradesh and Sonitpur District of Assam. The exact location of the origin of the river is in South Tibet at an elevation of 6,300 metres, or 20,669 feet on the India-Tibet border. It forms the boundary between the Pakke tiger reserve to its east and the Sessa and Eaglenest sanctuaries to its west, apart from separating the East Kameng district from the West Kameng district. On its west are the Aka hills while the Dafla Hills are on its east. Almost the entire forest zone near the Bhalukpong-Bomdila highway on the western banks of the river has gone over the years.
Jia Bhoroli River is most famous for the Golden Mahseer fish species, which is available in abundance in that entire region. The rough but rapid water flow makes it an ideal and popular spot for adventure sports like white-water rafting and angling.
Originating from a glacial lake below the snow capped Gori Chen Mountain in Tawang district in South Tibet on the India-Tibet border, the river flows across the Bhalukpong region part of the West Kameng District of Arunachal Pradesh and the Sonitpur District of Assam. Jia Bhoroli aka Tawang River merges into the Brahmaputra River at Tezpur, which lies on the eastern side of the Kolia Bhomora Setu Bridge. The river is among the most important tributaries of the Brahmaputra River. It originates in South Tibet, develops along Arunachal Pradesh and enters Assam to be merged with the same river of which it is a chief tributary.
Tippi River, also known as Tippi Naala, merges into the river near the cross-section of the Tippi village. The Tippi River drains most of the eastern part of the Eaglenest-Sessa Wildlife sanctuaries. It joins the Bhoroli/Tawang River somewhere near the Bhalukpong-Bomdila highway.
Tenga River, Dirang Chu, Bichom, among others, is few of the most important rivers that also form major tributaries of the Jia Bhoroli aka the Kameng River.
