There is a tinge of romance in the air in Kaziranga as we sit around the fireside and listen to a story which talks about a couple Kazi and Ranga who disappear into the forest to escape their parents’ wrath . However it is the sheer diversity of flora and fauna on the swampy marshlands of the Brahmaputra that makes it a World UNESCO site. Home to the one-horned rhinoceros the elephants, tigers, leopards, hoolock gibbons and some amazing varieties of birds, the park is bordered by tea plantations. While the tigers may be a bit difficult to spot due to the tall elephant grass in the region, rhinos and elephants are fairly common. Go on one of the early morning safaris when dawn just breaks. Kaziranga is also a birder’s paradise and make sure you try at least one of the birding safaris. less
