This is an important religious destination for Hindus. The Parshuram Kund is situated in the eastern part of Arunachal Pradesh and is a relatively inaccessible tourist destination. The Kund and its surrounding area are also rich in biodiversity and natural resources.
Parshuram Kund is situated in the Lohit district of Arunachal Pradesh. The Kund is a waterbody formed by the river Lohit (also known as Luit locally). The original temple of Parshuram here got separated due to an earthquake in 1952.
A couple of hundred meters from the Kund is a bridge over the river Lohit. On the side of the bridge, there is some human habitation including a few shops and some basic tourist accommodations.
During Makar Sankranti (A Hindu festival in January) throughout the country, fairs are organised where devotees take a dip in pious rivers. Parshuram Kund also has this festival where people from the North Eastern States as well as other parts of India, Nepal and Bhutan come to take a holy dip into the Lohit river.
Tezu is the nearest town about 50 km away and takes about one and a half hours to reach. Most tourists visit Parshuram Kund as a day trip based on Tezu.
