27. Pobitora sanctuary in Assam

Hardly 30 kms. from Guwahati is a beautiful wildlife sanctuary - Pobitora. Situated in Morigaon district of Assam, the sanctuary has a dense population of one-horned rhinos. Wild boar and wild buffalo are the other animals found in abundance here. A natural lake welcomes the tourists as they enter the sanctuary. Elephant and jeep rides are available for taking them around. There are good boarding and lodging places near the sanctuary. I recently visited the sanctuary and was thrilled to see one-horned rhinos in the wild for the first time.
