We spotted herds of Elephant, Wild buffaloes, boars etc. We could also spot the Hornbill which is basically found in the North-east.
Jeep Safari in Kaziranga National ParkKaziranga was on my list of the places to see; especially the much famed and always in the news One – horned rhinos. They are endangered since there numbers decreased due to massive poaching in the areas for its horns which is a precious product. Now with government initiatives these beautiful animals have found a safety zone. You can read much about Kaziranga and its geography on the internet. It is situated on the banks of the Brahmaputra.
The north eastern part of India boasts of virgin mesmerising landscapes that is yet to be fully explored by many travellers. Assam, Arunachal Pradesh, Meghalaya boasts of a wide range of innumerable natural treasures.
The next day, we left for Kaziranga National Park (It's a world heritage site and hosts two-thirds of the world’s Great One-horned rhinoceros. It also boasts of the highest density of tigers among the protected areas and was declared a Tiger Reserve in 2006 (although it is very difficult to spot one) at 8 am from our Hotel Pooja Palace, Ulubari, Guwahati by road. It's a 4 hrs drive by bus. The roads are in good condition with a picturesque journey. We reached the Kohora range by 1 pm. We had planned our stay at Kaziranga Florican Lodge. It's a new construction with a convenient location.
Delve into the beauty of Kaziranga National Park.One of India’s oldest travel mascots, the One-horned Rhinoceros is native to Kaziranga. Just watching this regal creature, in its natural environment is worth the trip here. An interesting fact about India is that Kaziranga makes for two-third of world's Rhino population.
Today was the day of the single horn rhino. We had booked our tickets for our elephant safari which happens early in the morning with help of priyanku. The tickets for the morning elephant safari has to be booked a day before at around 5pm. There are 3 batch for the elephant safari 5am,6am,7am IST and is Indian Standard Time actually which we follow. We had our safari booked for 2nd batch 6am.The elephant safari was pretty good, we saw 3 single horn rhino.I would had prefer the 3rd batch at 7 am as by that time sun was out and I would had good photos and also the visibility range of the park would be good due to less fog, so try getting the 3rd batch. Our hotel and elephant safari booking were done by priyanku(9859546531) he is the go to guy for all kaziranga national park booking and any queries.After our safari we went to the local Assam tea garden and processing plant which was on the way back to hotel which is also good place for a short visit and if you want to get yourself a good tea.We then moved for shillong for that you need to get to khanapara. From here you can get cabs for yourself and also can go by sharing cab. You also rent a royal enfield bike from awe rides (9854005002) they charge around 1200 for a royal enfield per day.The bikes our well maintained.Notes :- Be aware of local agents for the bus booking,and you can contact priyanku(9859546531) for any other queries ,he is very helpful.And i would say avoid traveling to and from kaziranga after sunset.
The Indian Rhinoceros are almost close to extinction, and the only place where you can see them freely in their own habitat is at the Kaziranga National Park in Assam. The park is open for tourists from November to April. A haven for wildlife photographers, you will also be able to spot many species of wildlife and a variety of birds, here. All wildlife enthusiasts should be heading to this place considered as one of the ideal places to visit in India in February. The temperature in the month will vary from 25°C to 5°C.How to reach: The best way to reach the Kaziranga National Park is by air. Fly to Guwahati and then hire a taxi to the national park. The nearest rail-head is in Helem, which is 30km away.Be a part of the most exquisite festival in India, the Taj Mahotsav!
Had a great time in the jungle with my friends. Visiting Manas National Park and Kaziranga National Park in Assam during the winter was really great. Lots of birds like Eagle,Great White Pelican & Mallard duck were common site. And also one horn rhino the prestigious pride of Assam is great to watch. And the memorable point worth mentioning is the warm welcome that was received from the wild elephant while entering Manas National Park. Overall the trip was a great experience and one should visit if anybody is interested in wildlife.
Kaziranga-TezpurEarly morning start, and good highways led us to reach outskirts of Nagaon for breakfast(Sunjukti dhaba) in no time.. thanks to 4 laned highways. Had breakfast at a dhaba and then decided to visit Kaziranga as we had made good time. From Nagaon the roads are single lane, and in assam its a problem as people drive real crazy. Roads close to kaziranga are in bad state, and we reached Kaziranga by 12, but had to wait for the safari to open at 1:30 (7-10am, and 1:30-3pm). Safari was good as again we were very few tourists (park opens on Oct 1st), and we saw Rhinos', elephants, deers, Monitor lizards, hornbills..
Start your adventure in one of India's most pristine national treasure. The breathtakingly beautiful expanse of Kaziranga National Park, unfolds on nature's canvas like a traveler's dream. Unpredictable and vast, the forests and the wetlands of the reserve are home to some of the world's most endangered species.Wake up to the distant roar of nature, pulsating through misty mornings in the lap of wilderness. Watch herds elephants roam in the misty grasslands and, if you are lucky, come upon the one horned-rhinoceros in it's natural habitat. Let the jungle music take-over your senses.Settle in and enjoy one of the most fabulous to places to visit in Northeast India. But don't get too comfortable, because there's so much more to come.
#Food Hornbill restaurant where we had our authentic Assamese meal which has too many varieties for your taste buds though the prices here are on the higher side. You can find many restaurants on the main Kaziranga road which serve similar food in almost similar budget.
We started the trip from Kaziranga and our first stop was Dhirang. We started from Kaziranga early morning and reached Dhirang late evening. We rested overnight and headed for Tawang. The journey from Dhirang to Tawang is beautiful and scenic. Stop if you see a herd of yalks or Ice or frozen waterfall because if you miss this beauty you will miss a big part of Arunachal. The people are friendly, helpful and if you feed at a Dhaba on the way, you will get a\ good quantity of food at a cheaper price. The other cheap food item are apples and kiwi, particularly kiwi which sells at 80-90/kg and if you have got good bargaining skills you can buy at even 60/kg.
Our first halt was at Tezpur in Assam where we spent two nights. Kaziranga is close to Tezpur and a must visit if possible ! Any visit to Arunachal requires a properly authorized Inner Line Permit for Indian Citizens. For all you foreign peeps, I believe you have to apply in Delhi. The ILP takes a day to get made but if you've hired a car, generally the driver will get it done for you before you reach if you send him the appropriate documents.
15. Kaziranga, Assam – Proving man's conscience is thicker than the rhino's skinThe Rhinoceros has become synonymous with Assamese pride and yet, the irony is, in Kaziranga, local poachers are the biggest threat to the animal. Once an abundant population of one horned rhinos existed in Kaziranga, along of other animals. But now, only around 3000 of them are said to exist. The area of the National Park too is decreasing, because people are settling in too close to the edges. Less people, more rhinos, I say.
Day 5 enter and we are returning back with a day in hand so we decided to visit kaziranga National Park , take a jeep on rent , spend some leisure time at cottage , rhinos , tigress baby cub , birds , reptiles and elephant . Ended a day with camp fire :).
on the way back to Giwahati, we visited over hyped kaziranga national park. my advice : don't go there at all, I was not able to see a single rhino. :-(

The rain from the previous night had washed and made the place look fresh. I had taken a Night Super Bus from Haflong to Bokakhat to reach Kaziranga nationnal park, by the time we were approaching the place it had been morning and the first rays of the sun were on the beautiful tea gardens on one side of the road and on the other side of the road was the forest. The sight was very captivating. Though its the One horned Rhino that makes the place famous, the wild buffaloes, Asiatic Elephant, Tigers, Swamp Deer and various species of birds are what the Kaziranga can boast of. The outdoor activities that can be enjoyed here are Elephant Safari through the National Park and also boat ride in Dhansiri river which is a tributary of the Mighty Brahmaputra. Best time to visit the Park is in between November to April. There are many guest houses and Resorts that have come up in Kaziranga for the tourists. But to get the feel of the place and also to know more about the lives of the people in living close to this Word Heritage site living in one of the home stays would be the best idea. Apart from that there has been few initiatives taken up to promote Eco Tourism in this part so there are resorts where one gets to enjoy a totally organic way of living, dining and enjoying nature.

A wild life Sanctuary famous for the highest density of Rhinos . Dont miss the elephant safari and the beautiful tea gardens of Methoni, Difalu, Hathkhuli, Behora and Borchapor. The timings are very particular at #Kaziranga- One hour elephant safari is offered between 5.30 a.m. and 7.30 a.m. Also, it is possible in the afternoon, from 3 p.m. until 4 p.m. Make sure, you book your safari well in advance. The interesting incident that happened with us was quite adventurous. As I said above , you have to adhere to the timings, this is because if you are not out after 5 pm from the forest you might get into trouble. So what happened with us, Our jeep safari got delayed because of the tourists rush during that time. Our jeep started at 4 and was supposed to get out of that place before 5 pm. As you know when girls start getting their pictures clicked they never stop. This is what something happened with us. While going back late in the evening from the forest , we got face-to-face with the Rhino mom and Rhino baby. We could prevent screaming and because of this we disturbed the whole environment of that place. Meanwhile the ranger quickly took out the gun just to scare those two cute Rhinos, they immediately hid themselves into the huge bushes and grasses. Luckily nothing happened as Rhinos are Herbivores ! Do go there but just be out on time and let the animals breath in their territory freely.
Kaziranga is a breathtaking beauty sprawled across green medows of Assam. It is famous for one-horned rhinos and spotting them munching on the greens is hugely exciting. National highway runs through the forest so even regular travellers can find rhinos.
