Dibru-Saikhowa National Park and Biosphere Reserve

The Dibru - Saikhowa National Park and Biosphere Reserve is a bio-diverse haven nestled in the folds of the mighty Brahmaputra on its south bank to the extreme east of the state of Assam, India. Geographically the park displays characteristics found in both the Indian and Malayan Sub regions and is a representative of the North Eastern India-Brahmaputra.

The Dibru - Saikhowa National Park and Biosphere Reserve is home to some of the most beautiful wildness on the planet and is distinguished by picturesque views and heavenly beauty. The flood plains of the river Brahmaputra is thus a home to many rare and endangered species of wild life and without the Park and Reserve some of these may have been extinct.
