It is a fail-safe wildlife destination that I would rank among the top five in India. You cant go wrong here and within two days you should have your fill of rhinos, elephants and wild buffaloes. If you are lucky you may even see a tiger, of which there is an abundance, but they all stay hidden in the tall grass, waiting for you to pass by. This is a paradise for birders with rarities like the greater adjutant stork, Bengal florican, grey headed lapwing, blossom headed parakeet and nesting grey headed fishing eagles among many others. The nearby Panbari reserve forest has capped langurs and Hoolock gibbon, which are a delight.

Food, sight-seeing and shopping: Given the importance of the destination, there are surprisingly, very few good places to stay. Local food is great, but those looking for familiar southern and northern flavours are likely to be disappointed. There is no shopping worth the name except perhaps Assam tea and some terrible T-shirts

Activities & things to do: The wildlife experience, if given by the right guide, is quite international and unbeatable. There is nothing much to do here apart from that. Those looking for any urban pleasures will be utterly disappointed. Oh yes, you can visit tea gardens and factories and understand the tea making process, but by prior appointment.

Travel tips, How to reach, travel warnings etc: It is easier to travel via Jorhat, which is an hour's drive, compared to five hours from Guwahati. However, Jorhat does not have daily flights and connects only from Kolkata or Guwahati

The destination is really exotic and its lusty full wet lands make you fresh totally. The central range Kohora and Western range Bagori are most viewed by tourists. The local food and market is also very fine, not so expensive or costly. All....... More

Kaziranga Info

  • State: Assam
  • Famous for/as: Jungle
  • Altitude: 328 m
Kaziranga National Park, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, is located in the Golaghat and Nagaon districts in the state of Assam. It was declared a Reserve Forest in 1905. The park consists of an area of 429.93 sq km with a buffer area of 429.40 sq km.

During the British reign, Lady Curzon on a safari expressed concern at the prevalence of hunting in the park. In 1926, hunting was banned in Kaziranga and in 1974 it was declared a National Park. Kaziranga is also famous for the Important Bird Area by Birdlife International for conservation of avifaunal species. Some of the bird species which can be spotted here are herons, storks, pelicans, imperial eagles, etc.

The park hosts about two-thirds of the world's Great One-horned Rhinoceroses and also holds the record for protecting the highest density of tigers in the world. The park was declared a Tiger Reserve in 2006. Kaziranga is a home to large breeding population of elephants, wild water buffalo and swamp deer. The location of the park makes it diverse as it is lined by the Eastern Himalaya biodiversity hotspot.

Kaziranga has large bioreserves of tall elephant grass, marshland and dense tropical moist broad leaf forests. The park celebrated its centennial in 2005 after its establishment in 1905 as a Reserve Forest. The park is maintained by the Assam Forest Department and Wildlife Trust of India along with the International Fund for Animal Welfare who have set up rehabilitation centres for distressed animals. Every year, an Elephant Festival is organised at the park to create awareness about the protection and conservation of Asiatic elephants.

Kaziranga National Park can be visited from November to April. Elephant safaris and Kaziranga Wildlife Tours can be availed at the park. Kaziranga can be reached by bus from Guwahati and Tezpur. The nearest airport is at Tezpur (60 km) which has direct flights to Kolkata. The nearest railhead is at Guwahati.
