Your eight day Assam holiday itinerary
Arrive at the Lokpriya Gopinath Bordoloi International Airport in Guwahati and meet our local representative. After breakfast, enter the mysterious Kamakhya Temple, one of the oldest Shakti Pithas, located in the heart of Guwahati. Get amazed as the sanctum of the temple beholds you with stories from the mythology. Move on to commence a wild tour amongst the wilderness of Assam’s unspoilt forests. Located about 70 kms away, Pobitora Wildlife Sanctuary lies masked under a perpetual green forest reserve. Check-in to your hotel, which lies among the serene mist of nature’s glory and spend a night under the kosher sky in a wonderland called Pobitora.
Snack on a delicious breakfast and gear up for an exciting jeep safari. Pobitora Wildlife Sanctuary is widely famed for its one-horned rhinos. Feel the stark difference in your lifestyle as the honks of horns are replaced by the melodious chirps of birds and herds of animals take the place of crowded roadways. Shooting is definitely prohibited, unless you are using your camera lens, of course! Wind up your ride and check out of the hotel. To reach the Manas Wildlife Sanctuary, pass through a long winding road of almost 235 kms and water bodies shinning like diamonds. Spend the night in your hotel, situated in the quietude of the woods in Manas.
Say hello to the pleasant weather with a warm cuppa accompanied by a delicious breakfast made from the fresh produce of the fields. A meandering Manas river by your side, woods like you’ve never seen before and a refuge to almost 26 endangered species, had to be listed on the UNESCO World Heritage Site. Your jeep safari will take you to Mathanguri, the most amazing point in this sanctuary. That’s not all, on your way, witness tigers, elephants, Assam roofed turtle, hispid hare, golden langur and pygmy hog catwalk in the wilderness. After a thrilling safari, head back to your hotel for a night of peaceful sleep.
As you savour your breakfast, a melody of birds shall sing on your window and a beautiful sunrise shall be an audience to it. Check out from your hotel and hit the road for an exciting road trip to yet another forest reserve, Nameri National Park. A beautiful 7-hour drive will take you to this abode of nature. Check in to your eco-camps and rest for the day. Sleep under the ferocious canopy of stars in your campsite at Nameri.
Have your breakfast as the morning brews a beautiful concoction of vermilion and yellow with the rise of the sun. Take a jungle trail to the inhabited forest interiors and bask in the wonder of watching the wildlife live in their natural habitat. Few meters on your trek and you will be amazed by the variety of colours that you see around. If there was to be a fashion show of birds, then Nameri National Park would definitely be a natural setting for their ramp walk. If the wildness of the jungle was not enough for you, take a thrilling turn and get ready for white water rafting at the Jia-Bhoreli river. (This is an optional activity and the cost is not included in this package.) Wind up your day and tuck inside your blanket underneath the twilight of the night sky in a tent, perched on the wilderness of the Nameri territory.
Post breakfast, check out from the hotel and say goodbye to Nameri National Park, only to progress further in your wild expedition. A short drive of 2.5 hours will take to the Kaziranga National Park. Check-in to your hotel and repose in luxury for the night at Kaziranga.
Today is the penultimate chapter of your trip. Have your breakfast and experience a surreal morning. The mornings at Kaziranga are murked by a thin mist and its stillness is often muddled with the far-away grunts of elephants. A UNESCO World Heritage Site, Kaziranga encloses world’s highest one-horned rhino population. Take a jeep safari to this diverse grassland. Rhinos, tigers, elephants, panthers, bears, birds and a dense forest shape the landscape of Kaziranga. Talking about diversity, how about a mahout-experience on an elephant to spot the rhinos from the vicinity? It will definitely be worth your extra penny. Sleep under the stars and moonlight for one final time in Kaziranga.
On one side, the sun welcomes a new day, while on the other side in the hotel, you will be served your farewell breakfast. Check out and move towards the Lokpriya Gopinath Bordoloi International Airport in Guwahati. While you are at it, summon up on the beautiful memories of the trip and the wilderness of the ingenious region of Assam.
