Bornadi Wildlife Sanctuary (Assamese: বৰনদী অভয়াৰণ্য) is a 26.22-square-kilometre (10.12 sq mi) wildlife sanctuary situated on the foothills of Himalayas bordering Bhutan in the north and is situated in Udalguri district & Baksa District of Assam. This sanctuary is named after the river Bornadi which flows on its western border. It is 30 km (19 mi) from Tangla town and 130 km (81 mi) from Guwahati. The sanctuary was established in 1980 to protect the hispid hare (Caprolagus hispidus) and pigmy hog (Porcula salvania). Pretty approachable at about 11 km out of library point, the sanctuary is home to many birds such as The White Capped Water Redstart and the Red Billed Blue Magpie. If you are lucky you can also spot some animals including panther, deer, Himalayan goat and even a leopard at times.
