Must see · Nature / Park · Wildlife Area
Take an elephant ride through India’s rhino heartland at Pobitora Wildlife Sanctuary, a national reserve famous for its dense population of the great Indian one-horned rhinoceros. This swampy marshland spanning some 38 sq km (14.7 sq mi) also provides habitats for leopards, buffalos, wild boar, muntjacs, civets, and over 375 bird species. You can also take a jeep safari along some of the sanctuary's few roads for the chance to enjoy close-up views of magnificent animals. Aside from spotting rhinos, the area offers great bird-watching opportunities, with populations of Indian pied horn bills, ospreys, hill mynas, kalij pheasants, and over 2,000 migratory birds. A visit to Pobitora Wildlife Sanctuary represents just the start of the adventure when you use our Guwahati trip itinerary planner to plot your vacation.

  • An amazing land of wildlife which is situated only about 50 km from Guwahati, nearest wildlife sanctuary from the city. Road condition is good most of the parts. Since accommodation facilities are limited suggested to book guest house and safari rides in advance to avoid disappointment. We stayed in a government guest house but some good private resorts are around (Google for details). Elephant ride in morning is a must to explore the jungle. Attached pictures would give you an overall idea about the place. Avoid monsoon season. Very friendly and knowledgeable people. The trip can be completed within a day but an overnight stay is recommended for bit relax trip and more time to explore around.
