Indus Dolphin Boat Safari

Indus is one of the greatest rivers of the world. It originates high in the mountains of Tibet and flows through Ladakh and Pakistan before flowing into the Arabian Sea. On its 3200 km journey it passes through the great Himalayan and Karakoram ranges, the fertile plains of the Punjab and the vast desert of Sindh. Near the great Nanga Parbat (8126 m), it forms the borderline between the Asian and Indian continental plates. The Indus is blessed with a rich variety of wildlife throughout its journey.

Among these are various resident and migratory birds, mammals, reptiles and fish. The Indus Blind Dolphin is one of its most famous inhabitants. Through this tour, we will take you to Taunsa Barrage, which is a two and a half hour drive from Multan. From Taunsa Barrage, you will travel down the river Indus on a traditional fishing boat where you will catch unforgettable glimpses of rural life in the Southern Punjab and the innumerable species of birds that stop by in these areas on their north-south migratory route. You will also have the opportunity to see the remarkable blind dolphin skirting to the surface near your boat. The boat safari will end at Ghazi Ghat Bridge from where we will drive back to Multan.
