Kaziranga A UNESCO World Heritage Site, Kaziranga National Park is unique in all spheres as compared to other national parks in India. A bastion of wild beasts, it is the natural habitat of world's largest population (two-thirds) of one-horned rhinoceroses. Apart from this, the park has the highest density of tigers in the world and is the home to large breeding populations of swamp deers and Asian elephants.

Situated in eastern India on the bank of the Brahmaputra, Kaziranga National Park has sprawling 688 sq. km area on the edge of the lower eastern Himalayas crisscrossed by four major rivers. Undisturbed by a human presence, this biodiversity hotspot combines high species diversity. Kaziranga is classified as an Important Bird Area by Birdlife International for its vast avifaunal species as well as many mammals, including panthers, leopard and bears.

Kaziranga National Park exhibits four types of vegetation - grasslands, woodlands, tropical moist deciduous forests and tropical semi-evergreen forests. Abundant rainfalls supports a very rich and varied flora in the park. Common grasses include sugarcanes, elephant grass, spear grass and reed. Thick evergreen forests contain boardleaf trees, whereas tropical semi-evergreen forests support common trees and shrubs. Among the vast aquatic floras, the most noticed are water lilies, water hyacinth and lotus, which create beautiful panoramic view in the lakes and ponds. There are also swamps, water bodies and sand.

Kaziranga contains significant populations of over 35 mammal species along with rare reptiles and avifaunal species. Apart from being the world's largest population of the One-Horned Rhinoceros, the park provides natural habitat to some rare animals like Bengal tigers, leopards, panthers, elephant, Asiatic water buffalo, swamp deer and endangered Ganges dolphin. Prominent others are fishing cat, mongoose, civet, Bengal fox, golden jackal, Chinese pangolin, Chinese badgers, particolored squirrels, macaque and ape.

Kaziranga National Park is an important bird area and paradise for ornithologists. It is the home to migratory birds, water birds, predators and scavengers. During peak winter, several migratory birds come into this area from central Asia. Among reptiles, two of the world's largest snakes - Reticulated Python and Rock Python - along with world's longest venomous snake - King Cobra - inhabit the park. Others include India cobra, monocled cobra, Russell's viper, monitor lizard, Assam roofed turtle and brown tortoise.

Best Time to Visit
The park experiences three seasons: summer, monsoon, and winter. The temperature in winter season (November-February) ranges from 25°C to 5°C. The summer season between March and May is hot when temperature reaches upto 37°C. The rainy monsoon season lasts from June to September.
