Molai, a man-made forest is one of the most beautiful sites in Jorhat. Housing wildlife like Indian rhinoceros, Bengal tigers, rabbits, deer, a wide variety of birds and herds of elephants, the forest offers opportunities of jungle safaris as well. More awe-inspiring is the fact that the forest, a result of the continuous efforts put in by celebrated environmentalist, Jadev Molai Payeng, was planted with trees on a 1,360 acre land within 30 years. This forest plays a massive role in maintaining a proper ecological balance in Assam and was recreated owing to deforestation in Molai. The work began with planting trees on the bank of River Brahmaputra and later on turned into a huge forest area sheltering several wildlife creatures. Encapsulating the essence of nature and wildlife it is a door to other tourist attractions such as Kakochang Waterfalls, Hoollongapar Gibbon Sanctuary, Sukapha Samannay Kshetra and Tocklai Tea Research Centre. It is a paradise for photographers and those seeking tranquility, owing to the perfect foliage and serene waterfalls in the premises.
