Bihar To Introduce Ro-Ro Vessels On River Ganga Soon; Witness State’s Beauty With River Tourism 

People visiting the beautiful state of Bihar will soon be able to witness the beauty of river Ganga in the best way. The state will soon launch two Ro-Ro (Roll-on Roll-off) vessels. This will allow visitors to enjoy river tourism along the Ganga river. These services will be offered in Bhagalpur and Patna.

The Patna Ro-Ro Vessels service will begin in a week, but the Bhagalpur service is still awaiting approval from the Forest Department. 

The Vikramshila Gangetic Dolphin Sanctuary is located on the waterway in Bhagalpur. Making sure that the vessel service won’t permanently disrupt the Gangetic dolphins’ environment is crucial. Gangetic dolphins are an endangered species.

The Digha Ghat – JP Ganga Path route will be used by the new Ro-Ro vessel service. This is done to encourage river tourism and to allow locals and visitors to both appreciate the Ganga River’s beauty and the region’s distinctive biodiversity.

The vessel can carry 300 passengers at once and makes four to five voyages each day. With the opportunity to rent the entire ship for private events, those who want to try river cruises can now take advantage of this service.

The cost of the tickets has not yet been determined, but it is anticipated to be low—roughly on the order of Patna’s MV Ganga Vihar, which has been in service since February 2023 for about INR 300 per passenger. 

A jetty is also ready for the Ro-Ro vessel’s operation. The Bihar district of Bhagalpur is home to the Vikramshila Gangetic Dolphin Sanctuary. The endangered Gangetic dolphins are the focus of this special protected region. 

The sanctuary extends along the Ganges river and protects a section of water that is a vital habitat for these elusive freshwater dolphins. (As per Times Of India Travel)
