One of the major attraction of Assam is Kaziranga Wildlife Sanctuary.It covers an approx .430 and is located on the banks of Bhramaputra,partly in Nagaon distt. and partly in Golaghat distt.It is open for the visitors from Nov. to April.It is inhabitated by the world's largest population of ONE HORN RHINO,many other mammals including tigers,elephants,,bisons,wildboar,swamp deer .Visitors come here for Bird watching too.People from all over the world visit here and this sanctuary is gaining its popularity ever.

Last Christmas holidays we made a trip to Kaziranga.It is 217 km away from Guwahati.We travelled by car and opted for this beautiful resort to stay overnite.We retired early to bed after enjoying a magnificient evening with good food,great Jhumoor Dance (performed by tea garden folks)and camp fire.We had to get up early in the morning to catch up the Elephant back ride.


  1. looking at these pics here am wondering why we never did think of visiting this place while we were still in gauhati.

  2. you can still do that....its a great experience specially for the littleones.

  3. I too had the opportunity to visit Umananda temple once, its beautiful, the location is amazing..
    By the way, sad to know about mr. d.das..but really appreciate his whole outlook.
