Kaziranga National Park, Assam

Been there recently?

Kaziranga National Park, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, is renowned for being the habitat of two-thirds of the rare one-horned rhinoceros population in the world, making it one of the most significant wildlife symbols of the nation. The park includes wetlands, forests, and grasslands, and the powerful Brahmaputra River laps at its edges. These habitats provide protection for a significant tiger population. Additionally, the park is home to several well-known snakes, including the longest venomous snake, the king cobra, the reticulated python, and the rock python. The park, which is in the centre of Assam, was established in 1908 at the suggestion of Mary Curzon, the wife of Lord Curzon of Kedleston, the viceroy of India at the time. It is an important area for migratory birds and also houses the endangered Ganges river dolphin. The park, which is split into five distinct ranges, was designated as a tiger reserve in 2006. The most incredible wildlife sightings can be found in the western and central Bagori and Kohora ranges. Pristine waterfalls, ethereal temples from long ago, and verdant tea estates all encircle the park.
