Fauna of Sipahijola Wildlife Sanctuary
Sipahijola Wildlife Sanctuary is the home to around 150 species of birds. The unique bespectacled monkey called Phayre's Langur is a major attraction of the sanctuary. Five species of primates have been recorded here including Spectacled Langur, Capped langur, Pigtailed Macaque, Macaque and Rhesus. Rare faunal specie called Crab-Eating Mongoose has also been revived in this forest. Sipahijola Wildlife Sanctuary has been established with the dual aim of creating a wildlife sanctuary as well as academic research centre. During winters, the sanctuary welcomes a number of migratory birds which arrive from distant countries.
Sipahijola Wildlife Sanctuary hosts a number of lakes. Amongst all Amrit Sagar and Abasarika lakes provides boating facilities. A forest bungalow provides comfortable accommodation to the tourists which is situated near the zoo and the botanical garden.
