Picture this: a field of shining green grass. An Indian Rhino grazing peacefully at the back. A few hog deer grazing in the foreground. A huge, orange-and-black Great Hornbill sitting on a tree nearby. And violet orchid blooms circling the tree trunks.
This picture perfect scene is possible only in Kaziranga. Located at a 3-4 hours’ car ride away from Guwahati in Assam, Kaziranga is truly the most beautiful forest I have ever seen. All colours imaginable can be seen here. The birds here range from huge to tiny and all of them are vibrantly coloured. The grass ranges from black-and-white, grey-green to almost fluorescent green. The wooden bridges over the clean blue rivers and lakes (wooden because every year they are damaged by floods) add to quaint beauty of the place. And there are flowers blossoming in every nook and cranny.
