Dibru-Saikhowa National Park
Considered as a divine abode for bird watchers, the Park is home for more than 500 different species of birds. The migratory birds call for major attraction. Some of the birds which can be sighted are spot-billed pelican, white bellied heron, swamp francolin, pallah’s fishing eagle and migratory birds like geylong goose, brahmini duck, bar-headed goose, black stork etc. The Park is also well known for its Salix trees.
Dibru-Saikhowa National Park, with its scenic beauty and wide range of wildlife, is among the most vibrant wildness on earth. It is well equipped with lodges and eco-camps. One can stay in any hotels in Tinsukia, but the appropriate and exciting option for nature lovers would be to stay in one of the eco-camps near Guijaan. These eco-lodges have their own boats and therefore travellers can have the pleasure of enjoying a ‘boat safari’ through the wilderness of the Park. Adventure seeking visitors can camp in one of the river islands if one opts for longer cruises on large boats.
The park can be visited by staying at Tinsukia town from where you can directly catch buses to the Park. The nearest airport is the Mohanbari Airport in Dibrugarh, 40kms away from Tinsukia town. Buses can be taken to the town of Tinsukia which is well connected with Dibrugarh town by NH 37 and the distance is 55kms. The distance between Guwahati and Tinsukia is 500kms.
