Manas National Park Assam 40

Manas National Park

An UNESCO Heritage Biodiversity
Manas National Park is a precious piece of natural heritage recognized worldwide as an Elephant Reserve, a Project Tiger Reserve, and a Biosphere Reserve. Adding more thrill to it, the unique population of Wild Water Buffalos and Rhino make the reserve even more striking. In addition to the scenic beauty, the forest has become valuable for being home to some scarce and endangered species like the Assam Roofed Turtle, Golden Langur, Hispid Hare, and Pygmy Hog.
Covering an area of 391 km2, the park is spread across three ranges. Stretched throughout six districts Kokrajhar, Bongaigaon, Barpeta, Nalbari, Kamrup and Darrang, the reserve is interspersed with several water bodies like Sankosh, Saralbangha, Hel, Tanali, Courage, Sidli (Bhor) Aio, Manas, Beki, Pathimari, Kaladia, Tihunala, Morapagaldia, Nala, Braalia, Pbornodi and Dhansiri.
The park lies close to the Indo-Bhutan international border adjacent to wildlife territories in Bhutan. The Manas River, with its powerful panoramic beauty, is, of course, a big bonus for travel enthusiasts. And many of them visit the park to delight in its enchantment. Situated at the west of the park, the river splits into two, and the following streams are known as Beki and Bholkaduba.
The Manas River and five more small water bodies flowing through the park have made it a thickly forested land. More than 543 types of plants, therefore, thrive here as per records. In the Savanna area, visitors stumble upon a beautiful bedrock formed by limestone and sandstone. Deposits of fine alluvium in the south fuel the added thrill, and the serenity of Mathanguri is a blissful meet.
