Kaziranga National Park – A Paradise Unlike Any Other

The first name of a National Park in India that comes into anyone’s mind is the Kaziranga National Park and the species that is only found in this park like the one-horned rhinoceros, a large number of tigers and elephants. Located on the Eastern Himalayan Bio-Diversity spot, this park has one of the richest densities of faunas and floras in the world.

Kaziranga National Park – A Place That All Nature Lovers Should Experience

While planning about this Assam trip, the first place that came into my thoughts was the Kaziranga National Park, and truly no words or photographs can actually describe this paradise. This place is truly a haven for many species of organisms and it is their only home left on this wonderful planet that we are ruining. This Park was commissioned thanks to Mary Curzon who was the wife of the then Lord Viceroy of India Lord Curzon in 1904.

The best way to explore this park in on an Elephant and this vantage point gave me the opportunity to click some beautiful photos of the various birds, monkeys and other mammals of the Kaziranga National Park. This place is a hot spot for wildlife and every nature lover should experience the magic and brilliance of the Kaziranga National Park.

The Brahmaputra runs alongside the park and there were a huge density of animals drinking from the river. We encountered a huge herd of Wild Buffaloes, a single horned rhinoceros, wild boars, Indian swamp deer, the browed gibbon, mongoose and the a species of jungle cat. Capturing pictures of these majestic creatures was a one in a life time experience.

The tiger was the main attraction, but unfortunately I didn’t have the fortune to meet the majestic cat. The number of tourists is also overwhelming, but the forest officials seem like they had things under control. We should be thanking Mary Curzon and Lord Curzon, without them this park would not have existed and would not be this richly and densely populated as it is now. The Kaziranga National Park has truly gave me an experience that I would hold on till my last breath.
