This National Park Is A UNESCO World Heritage Site, And That Is Reason Enough To Explore It
If your wanderlust is compelling you to explore the wilderness, then Kaziranga National Park in Assam is second to none.
What Makes It Awesome
The park is listed as a UNESCO world heritage site, covering an area of 42,996 ha. It is one of last unmodified natural areas in India, devoid of any human presence. Kaziranga is a reserve for the world's largest population of one-horned rhinoceroses. You will also get to spot a number of mammals, including tigers, elephants and bears, and innumerable birds.
Nature won't be as soothing as it is at Kaziranga, since it is adorned with vast forest covers and tributaries of the Brahmaputra river. An amalgamation of the tall wet grassland and patches of deciduous to semi-evergreen woodlands is a vibrant sign of natural diversity. Major credit should go to the park, from contributing hugely to pull the one-horned rhinos from the brink of extinction to having the highest population of this species, which is estimated at 2,000.
You can also spot some unique sightings including wild water buffaloes, gaur, eastern swamp deer, Sambar deer, hog deer and capped langur, among others. Apart from all this, the park also is home to some threatened migratory bird species and the endangered Ganges Dolphin, which can be spotted in the ox-bow lakes.
Here's a chance to listen to your inner Gulliver and rove in this exciting adventure.
Kaziranga, being an immensely popular tourist spot, has a lot of lodges and inns. But you can definitely try out Wild Grass Lodge or Infinity Resorts for a comfortable stay.
