There are two places within the local area where the rare Gangetic Dolphin can be seen. One place is not far from Thakurdwara and can be done in a half day walk and canoe ride from our camp.
There's also a good place to see them further away near Chisapani. It is normally possible to see these beautiful finless creatures without too much trouble and local fisherman can help us find them if they have moved to a different area of the river.
Everything can be arranged including guide, food and transport to both destinations for a maximum of 900R per person. The price becomes less as the group size becomes larger.
