"Travellers who are interested for nice boat ride must try Dibru-Saikhowa"

  • 4.0/7
  • Posted Jan 4, 2016
The boat ride was wonderful, with nice arrangements to sit at two decks. Nice breakfast, snacks & Lunch on board the boat managed by M/s Om Boat Service. During this season we were not lucky to see many birds or wild horses. Local people told us that these wild horses are in deep forest & can be seen only during monsoon when the water level goes up.

We could see dolphins from a long distance. We saw a bird which could fly, swim & dive inside the water. Nice trip for a day. Travellers should reach the 'Guijan ghat' by 1000 hrs in the morning for boat ride, sightseeing & some time on the other bank/ river island for group activities. Must go with a large group during winter or monsoon as there is no shed or protection at the other bank & island. The boat charges Rs 1000 per head for Boat ride, breakfast, snacks( Local fist was very delicious) & Lunch. They leave you back at 4PM. Avoid overnight stay on the launch unless you are a large group as it will be difficult to spend 24 hours.
