Kaziranga National Park in the North-Eastern state of Assam, is a world heritage site. All those who have thought Indian one-horned rhinoceros only existed in Jurassic-era, then a trip to Kaziranga is a must for them. One of the most sought after wildlife holiday destinations in India, Kaziranga National park's 430 square kilometer area sprinkled with elephant-grass meadows, swampy lagoons, and dense forests is home to more than 2200 Indian one-horned rhinoceros, approximately 2/3rd of their total world population.
Kaziranga National Park is located at a place named Kanchanjuri which is at a distance of 193 km from Guwahati. It takes about 4 hours to reach Kaziranga so it is better to start early in morning by 8 AM. On the way, you will cross the capital city of Dispur, Nagaon and finally reach your destination. The park is also the breeding ground of elephants, wild water buffalo, and swamp deer. Over the time, the tiger population has also increased in Kaziranga, and that's the reason why Kaziranga was declared as Tiger Reserve in 2006.
