Kalamati

If you are a lover of geological natural beauty, Kalamati is your heaven. It is a part of the Manas Biosphere Reerve and the western buffer zone of Manas National Park. The natural beauty of its surroundings and the unique geological phenomenon of the salty minteral-rich black soil that attracts a large number of animals to the natural 'salt-lick' site - has made Kalamati a favourite spot for those who don't mind exploring nature off-the-beaten-track.

The area is a combination of semi-deciduous open-canopy forests, savannah woodlands and large tracts of alluvial grasslands with countless channels of Kanamakra criss-crossing the landscape. The dark mountains of Bhutan provide a befitting backdrop to this enchanting scenario. At the time of sunset the experience of being at Kalamati is an unforgettable one when the entire river turns into a stream of molten gold.

The forest comes alive in spring  with the flowering of trees igniting a festive mood. During the colourful spring, a three-day Kalamati Festival is held on the glittering sands of the riverbed.
