Pobitora Wildlife Sanctuary is in the Marigaon district of Assam. The Pobitora Wildlife Sanctuary is spread over an area of about 39 sq. km. and is famous for one-horn rhinoceros. The WLS is also home to a large number of migratory birds. Major wild life sighted in the forest include Asiatic Buffaloes, Wild bear, Civet cat, Leopard, monkeys etc. The terrain of Pabitora is hilly and diverse vegetation of the forest can be of special interest to the naturalist.

The Pobitora Wildlife Sanctuary is located on the border of Nagaon and Kamrup Dist, 60 km from Guwahati. It is just a couple of hours drive from Guwahati through beautiful terrain. Guwahati is the nearest major city and the connecting point for travelers visiting Pabitora by Air, Rail or Road.

Pobitora was declared a reserve forest in 1971 and a wildlife sanctuary in 1987. The Sanctuary is bounded by the Brahmaputra and Kalang Rivers and is mostly covered by tall grass that is ideal for Rhinos.

As per local lore the name Pobitora was given by King of Mayong (A village near Pobitora) in the memory of his daughter of the same name who died in her youth.
