About Chakrashila Wildlife Sanctuary

In the year 1966, the government of Assam declared the Chakrashila Hill located between the districts of Dhubri and Kokrajharas an area of reserved forests. Many years later, in the year 1994, the government of Assam recognized the Chakrashila Hill forest reserve as the area earmarked for the protection of different species of flora and fauna in Assam – called the Chakrshilla Wildlife Sanctuary. The sanctuary is a diverse ecosystem made up of various flora fauna that includes different species of plants, trees and aquatic and semi-aquatic plants. The higher altitude regions of the sanctuary are full of deciduous tree varieties while the lower altitudes support the sal coppice trees. A large variety of mammals, reptiles, and birds makes up the wildlife of the sanctuary. The mammals include different species of the Indian pipistrelle, Indian flying fox, Indian false vampire, rhesus macaque, Chinese pangolin, Asiatic jackal, short-nosed fruit bat and the Bengal fox. Bird watchers and other ornithologists have recorded over 119 species of birds in this sanctuary, including rare, endangered species.
