Pobitora Wildlife Sanctuary, Guwahati

4.1
#1 of 22 in Parks in Assam
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 small but extremely beautiful wildlife sanctuary. It has a thick density of rhinoceros population and the sightings are often. Go for an elephant safari instead of a jeep and you will see the rhinos better. It is a lovely little place that offers the kind of quiet and peace that I haven't experienced before in my life. From the sunrise to the sunset to the night sky full of stars, every moment here is truly a blessing.

    Beautiful and hopefully the management will keep it this natural always. The visitors should carry a binocular for the best experience Sorry for the blurry quality of some of the photos as these were zoomed to the max

    This sanctuary is very close to Guwahati, Assam. The forest is not very big but you can view plenty of birds, wild buffaloes and rihno. The arrangements by forest department to view the sanctuary is good. Staying arrangement is also there but you can make it from Guwahati also. A good place to visit.

Where to stay in Guwahati

Most accommodations in Guwahati lie close to the main train station in the Paltan Bazaar district. Here, you'll find some particularly refined options next to the river in the Fancy Bazaar area, offering extensive views of the water and access to some of the main sights in town. Look to the mazy side streets of the Paltan Bazaar district for some budget-friendly guesthouses and hostels. The main Guwahati-Shillong Road has a good choice of hotels, with some budget and luxury options available. The road offers a degree of convenience for those who want to get out and explore the hillier areas of the region.
