Kaziranga : A place which can incite your senses, arrest your mind and soul


                 The Post is for A to Z April 2015 Challenge, I took up a topic : 'K' for Kaziranga'

Awestruck beauty of the dark forest…ride on the elephants, listen to the growling of the tigers….the exciting sights of one-horned Rhinos….feel the touch of the melodious breeze sitting on the bank of the beautiful lakes….engrave your own footprints on the bank of mighty Brahmaputra river…enjoy the songs of the curvy streams…run through the tea maze with utmost pleasure and freshness……

Does it sound very tempting?.....You can catch them all at Kaziranga.

Kaziranga is a beautiful world heritage site, a national park situated in the northeastern region of India, within the state of Assam, hosting two-thirds of the world's great one-horned rhinoceroses. Celebrating its centennial in 2005 after its establishment in 1905, Kaziranga boasts the highest density of tigers among protected in the world and was declared a Tiger Reserve in 2006. It is home to large breeding populations of elephants, wild water buffalo, swamp deer and birds.

You can imagine the picturesque of Kaziranga, as it is a vast area of tall elephant grass, marshland, and dense tropical moist broadleaf forests, criss-crossed by four major rivers, and has numerous small bodies of water. It is engulfed by the Brahmaputra River, which forms the northern and eastern boundaries, and another river Mora Diphlu forms the southern boundary. Other notable river within the park is Mora Dhansiri.

Take an elephant or open Jeep Safari in the fresh morning….ride through rugged reeds, not only you can enjoy the scenic beauty…but be thrilled with the awesome sights of the animals. If you feel, cruise in a boat in the lakes....catch the fish…or climb the small and high hills, explore the beautiful wild flowers in the forest…visit the Aadhivashi’s village…. stroll through the lush tea, coffee and rubber plantations…

The best time to visit Kaziranga is from mid-November to early April month. It is well connected by road, one can take the bus or hired cars. The nearest airport is situated at Jorhat, 97-km from the park. The other airport is located at Guwahati, which is 217-km from Kaziranga. The Tezpur airport is also quite close to the park.

Many resorts offer you to golf on the exciting fairways surrounded by tea gardens and admirable greens...Get surprise by awesome Assamese traditional food and hospitality. If it’s a rainy day, just take a cottage, feel the sound of the rain on hay-roof, sit in the verandah, sip a cup of fresh green or orthodox tea.

A marvelous experience is guaranteed.

Awaken the wanderlust in you to visit this national park, when there are few Rhinos and Tigers are still alive…..the energetic Poachers are at work….no fullstop for them….
