Kaziranga National Park

Kaziranga, locally meaning ‘where the mountain goat has water,’ is much more than just a wildlife destination, in fact, it is a piece of history. Turned 100-years-old in 2005, this UNESCO World Heritage Site is flanked all along by beautiful tea gardens and tall elephant grass. Situated on the banks of the Brahmaputra River, amidst a pleasant tranquil ambience, Kaziranga National Park spreads over an area of 480 sq. kms.

Till the early 20th century, Kaziranga was a swampy, almost inaccessible wetland, used as hunting ground by local tribes and hunters. In 1905, the British Government under Lord Curzon, proposed to declare Kaziranga as a reserve forest and the area was officially closed for shooting in 1908. Due to limitless poaching of the wild animals, in the year 1950, Kaziranga was declared a wildlife sanctuary and in 1974, it was given the status of National Park.

In 1985, Kaziranga National Park was declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO and now it is globally known for its importance as one of the last undisturbed habitats of the Great Indian One-Horned Rhinos. Today, with its flat grasslands with streams and large, land-locked water bodies, swamps and tall thickets of elephant grass, Kaziranga is providing an ideal habitat for the Rhinos, Wild Buffalos, Swamp Deers, Wild Elephants and over 450 species of birds.
