With tall thickets of elephant grass growing in a sprawling area of 430 sq km Kaziranga National Park makes for a world heritage site. With ideal conditions for the Indian One-Horned Rhino and measureless poaching this park was declared to be a sanctuary in 1940.
Tigers are the highlight of Indian Wildlife but this place is also well known for one horned rhino. The other wildlife here includes Indian Bison, Barasingha, Sloth Bears, Leopards, a large population of Indian Elephants and many more. The park also houses several species of birds which range from Black-Shouldered Kite to Grey-Headed Fishing Eagle, Himalayan Griffon, etc.
Some interesting activities you can do while you are here are elephant safari and sightseeing in Kaziranga.
Elephant Safari: The best time to explore this park is during the early hours of the morning. An elephant ride when the sun is just beginning to rise; the pea shaped morning dew refracting the sunrays spreads a wave of serenity in the surroundings. The Mahouts who train these elephants guide you through the jungle. You will be amazed to see herds of wild Elephant wandering or Indian Rhinos saunter past visitors.
Sightseeing in Kaziranga: While you are in Kaziranga you might as well see the coffee and rubber plantations that grow along the Karbi Anglong. You can also visit the tea gardens of Assam.
