It is an eye soothing environment along the bank of River Dibang located 30 kms from Roing in the western direction. It is an ideal place for angling, rafting and a modest site for hiking/ trekking.

The mighty Dibang River (which almost entirely lies within India) originates near the Tibetan Plateau, widens and enters its vast floodplain at Nizamghat in Lower Dibang Valley District of Arunachal Pradesh. The name ‘Nizam’Ghat is perplexing and is a possibly based on “Needham”.  J. F. Needham was a British Officer of the Bengal Police who led action against Adi Tribals who opposed the establishment of Military outpost at Mijom Ghat (as Nizamghat was then called), circa 1857. The Adis had thwarted attempts to set up an outpost (to keep a close watch on Adi Territory) here in an uprising. In 1894, Adis again defeated a strong and equipped British base camp, which was set up  with the sole aim to teach the independent Adis a lesson. But Adis were unvanquished, even in the face of a technologically advanced enemy.
