Bihar’s Ganga Ro-Ro: River Realm Adventure

Bihar, a land rich in culture and heritage, is all set to unveil a novel avenue of exploration as river tourism takes center stage on the revered Ganga River. The upcoming introduction of two state-of-the-art Ro-Ro (Roll-on Roll-off) vessels promises an enchanting journey that will unfold against the scenic backdrop of Patna and Bhagalpur.

Anticipated to launch within a week, the Ro-Ro service in Patna is brimming with excitement, while its counterpart in Bhagalpur eagerly awaits the green light from the Forest Department. This deliberation is crucial to ensure that the delicate ecosystem of the Vikramshila Gangetic Dolphin Sanctuary in Bhagalpur remains unharmed by this remarkable venture.

What Awaits You?

The groundbreaking Ro-Ro vessel venture is meticulously charted to navigate the Digha Ghat – JP Ganga Path route, crafting a seamless passage for river enthusiasts. This venture not only propels river tourism to new heights but also offers residents and visitors an unmissable opportunity to bask in the allure of the Ganga River and revel in the area’s unique wildlife.

The vessel will embark on four to five expeditions daily, accommodating 300 passengers. Adventurers seeking a taste of aquatic escapades can now revel in this experience, with an exclusive option to charter the entire vessel for private gatherings and events.

While ticket pricing remains a mystery for now, industry insiders anticipate a reasonable fare, reminiscent of the MV Ganga Vihar (approx. INR 300 per person), which has been delighting passengers in Patna since February 2023.

Unveiling the Vikramshila Gangetic Dolphin Sanctuary

Nestled in Bihar’s Bhagalpur district, the Vikramshila Gangetic Dolphin Sanctuary stands as a testament to conservation efforts. This dedicated haven, spanning the course of the Ganges River, emerges as a lifeline for the endangered Gangetic dolphins. The sanctuary’s expanse serves as a vital sanctuary for these elusive creatures, safeguarding their habitat from human interventions, regulating fishing practices, and fostering awareness about their pivotal role in sustaining the river ecosystem’s health.

India’s Waterway Wanderlust

The Indian subcontinent has embraced the allure of river tourism with open arms. From the sacred rituals adorning the Ganges to the serene houseboat sojourns in Kerala’s backwaters, from the majestic Brahmaputra showcasing Assam’s wildlife to the historical tales woven into Kolkata’s Hooghly River, these aquatic pathways promise every voyager an indelible encounter, etched forever in memory.
