Our penultimate day of visit to Bodoland began visiting Pobitora Wildlife Sanctuary.
Pobitora Wildlife Sanctuary is a wildlife sanctuary located in southern banks of Brahmaputra River in Morigoan district of Assam, India. It is one of place where the grasslands and wetlands are suited for Assam’s famous animal – One Horned Rhinoceros.
A relatively unknown for most of the travellers who visit Assam, Pobitora is a gem of its kind. It is mostly unexplored and is closest to the wilderness to the city of Guwahati. Pobitora was declared as a Wildlife Sanctuary in the year 1987. The sanctuary has a total area of 38.8sqkm and it has around 27 villages sharing a border with it. Pobitora is home to One-Horned Rhinoceros.
We went there early in the morning which helped us to take elephant safari, we sat on the back of an elephant and explored the regions of Pobitora Wildlife Sanctuary. Being home to One-Horned Rhino, we noticed Rhinos etc. Exploring early has been helpful where I could notice many of nocturnal animals roaming around.
Later we had our breakfast and explored more regions of Pobitora via Jeep Safari, we were taken into the depths of the sanctuary where we were lucky to notice many animals which were not visible during elephant safari.
Once we explored Pobitora, we had lunch and headed over to Mayong Village. Mayong village is one of the places where it is also called as Land of Black Magic is now one of the offbeat tourist destinations in Assam, India. Now the village is home to many archaeological sites. The village is rich in wildlife, eco-tourism, adventure and cultural tourist place in North East India.
Once we explored Mayong village, we headed back to Prasanti Tourist Lodge where we rested and on our last day we were free to explore the place and boarded off to the airport in the afternoon.
