The Dri Stream or sometimes referred as Dri Chhu by the local is just a stream of water moving among the mountains and valleys in the Arunachal Pradesh District. The stream which originates from the Mendi Mountain is flowing from a higher level area to a lower level area into a channel and consist the series of other small stream that is flowing together with the Dri streams. Besides the Dri Streams, another river which is the Mathun River coming from the Noroekhupra Mountain also combine together with the stream in Matuli. Located about fifty miles from the source, the Matuli River will combine to form the Dibang River which is one of the tributaries of the great Brahmaputra River. All of these rivers will eventually flow out of the India into the Bay of Bengal. The Dri stream can also be seen from the Anini which is the centre for Dibang Valley district. Among other streams that can be found in India are the Ange River, Adzon River, and Emra River with length varying from 16 to more than 30 kilometers.
Although it did not act as the natural border in India, the stream is still an important part of the river system in India. This is because just like the Mathun River, the Dri streams also help to shape up the India land and terrain. Due to years of endless water flow, the India land is now home to some of the beautiful valley and great plateau. This stream also helps in the growth of the lush green forest surrounding the nearby area and it is even used by the people living nearby the river as their source of water supply for their crop.
Unlike most rivers in India, the Dri Streams is not suitable for any rafting or kayaking activity and it makes it less known by those who are unfamiliar. However, for most anglers the Dri Streams provide a good spot for them to pursue their hobby. Getting there can be a little bit tricky to those who are unfamiliar because they need to get pass through Akukan Pass which is about 27 kilometers. This a little bit off charted area is waiting for any angler to make the most of it. However, there are other ways for people to get to the stream such as through air with the nearest airport located in the Pasighat city.
There is a plan to build a water catchment area where the stream flows together with the Mathun River. The Catchment area is expected to be about 2, 600 square kilometers and could provide a good water supply when needed. With the average rainfall of about 4023 mm per year, the location for this catchment area is very strategic. With population of the Arunachal Pradesh reaching up to 1.4 millions, this catchment will be a good clean water resource for the residence.
The Dri Streams consist of some small and narrow streams that are flowing all the way to the smaller and further part of India. The origin of the stream is a beautiful plateau that also forms a spur of mountain in India. The stream also merges with the Angee River in Anileh where it is filled with lots of pines and the Arupha in the east.
Among the valley that the Dri stream pass through is the peak of Dishindi mountain in the west, the Mendi and Awendi mountain in the north-east, and the Akhandi and Nororekhupra in the east and west side respectively. While at the Anini valley, the Dri stream also flows through the Ayholenda range.
The Dri streams are one of main tributaries of the Dibang River besides the Ich, Ahu, and Ithun. The Dibang River originates from the beautiful Dibang Valley district or also known as Talon by the Mishmis. The river which is flowing through the Arunachal Pradesh will merge together with Lohit River near the Saikhowa Reserve Forest. This main tributary of Brahmaputra keeps on flowing to the outside of India into the Bay of Bengal. The river also acts as the natural border between India and Tibet. Among the courses that the Dibang River flows is the Mishmis Hills which expanded from the Himalaya where the Bhismaknagar Fort is located.
