Kaziranga National Park Assam: The place where rhinos and tigers lock horns

Kaziranga National Park Assam is the real pride of eastern India. Sharing its neighborhood with the mighty Brahmaputra River, this park boasts of the one-horned Indian rhino whose rarity and dwindling numbers make it a fascinating attraction. Though poaching problems are still prevalent, the authorities have tried to put their best foot forward in ensuring that the local population of these thick-skinned beasts climbs up.
Even though the forest’s lead star is the one-horned rhino, it is also home to a number of other animals and birds. Elephants are very common in these regions and you should even enjoy a ride on their back. Besides, the forest also houses tigers lurking in its mysterious wombs. However, the bamboos and grasses usually keep them obscured from sight. But who knows, you might get lucky one day?

If you explore the forest, you would bump into deer and would hear the screech of the langurs. You shall even be greeted by a prickly porcupine (don’t touch it) and may come nose-to-nose with leopards. It is best to travel in jeep safaris because the guards know the forest better than you and can show you the regions where animals usually gather.

Kaziranga National Park also offers some accommodation facilities which you can avail, if you wish! There are some eateries as well like the ‘Wild Grass’ where you can gorge on snacks.

The park is open throughout the year, excepting the monsoon season! The tourist count is at its peak during the months of December-February which is the general favored time to visit any national park in India. The spring months of March-April are also considered fantastic to visit Kaziranga since the weather is quite pleasant during this time and the crowd is moderate.
How to reach Kaziranga National Park: The nearest airport is in the town of Guwahati. So, those who are traveling by plane need to get down at Guwahati Airport and then hire a car/cab to the park. It would take you around 5-6 hours on road. Direct buses are also available from Guwahati.

If you are traveling by train, then you better get down at the Jakhalabandha station which is in close proximity. From there, you can access the forest by any vehicle.

Things to pack while going to Kaziranga: While heading to Kaziranga National Park, you are advised to pack in light clothes, a pair of good sports shoes, photographic cameras, medicine kit and mosquito repellents.

Overall, Kaziranga trip makes for a memorable sabbatical from the mundane routines of life.
