    Pobitora Sanctuary Reopens For Tourists

    The Pobitora Wildlife Sanctuary is home to more than 375 species of migratory birds and various reptiles

    Good news for wildlife and adventure enthusiasts as the Pobitora Wildlife Sanctuary reopened its gates for visitors for the tourist season on November 6th, 2019. Located on the southern bank of the Brahmaputra in Morigaon district of Assam, the Sanctuary had recorded 102 one-horned rhinos in 2018.

    Assam Forest Minister Parimal Suklabaidya reopened the Sanctuary for visitors. Minister of State for Health, Piyush Hazarika, Morigaon Deputy Commissioner Rituraj Bora and other forest officials were present on the occasion.

    The Sanctuary is also home to 15 species of grass, wild buffalo, wild boar and leopard. It is also home to more than 375 species of migratory birds and various reptiles. It is 55 km away from Guwahati. Elephant rides and jeep safaris are available in the Sanctuary.

    Although Kaziranga National Park is mostly frequented by domestic and foreign tourists to catch a glimpse of the one-horned rhino, the Pobitora also provides a spectacular opportunity to witness the animal in all its majesty, either soaking in the sun, taking a stroll or just grazing.

    “The Assam government is working towards developing the state as a tourism hub. We have taken up different plans to boost the tourism sector. We make Assam pollution-free, we appeal the people of the state to join hands and extend their support to us,” Suklabaidya said.

    The Minister and officials also enjoyed jeep and elephant safaris on the sidelines of the re-opening ceremony of the Sanctuary.
