Kaziranga- Tea Garden, Kaziranga National Park, Orchid Park

Tea gardens are the pride of Assam. Assam tea is famous for its flavour and colour. While on a visit to the Kaziranga National Park, tourists must make it a point to visit a few tea gardens located closeby. The lush green small bushes rolling down the hills are a sight that everyone should witness once in a lifetime. Kaziranga National Park is one of the prides of Assam. It is noteworthy to mention that it is home to the endangered Indian one-horned rhinoceros and also declared as a tiger reserve in 2006, hosting the highest density of tigers in the world. The national park is also a UNESCO World Heritage Site. It is a large park covering an approximate area of 429.93 sq km. It falls under two districts of Assam – Golaghat and Noagaon districts. Kaziranga tourism is not just about spotting one of the many one-horned rhinoceros or tigers that gracefully trudge the large grounds, but also to see the three large herbivores that live in the park, namely, the Asiatic Elephant, the Asiatic Water Buffalo and the Swamp Deer. The Kaziranga National Park has also been demarcated as an important bird-area by the Birdlife International for its effort to conserve avifaunal species. One of the many attractions in the Kaziranga National Park is travelling inside the park on elephants that are steered by trained mahouts.

Bhalukpong – Nameri Forest

A tiny red and green signboard at the side of the road to Bhalukpong, will lead you to this national park. Located around 38 km north of Tezpur, Nameri National Park is every wildlife enthusiast’s dream. The best part about being here is that your vehicle might be the only one as far as the eye can see. Divided by the Brahmaputra tributary of Jia Bhoroli, Nameri is a tiger reserve as well as home to many wild elephants. A seemingly unending kuchcha road, complete with bumps and potholes, will lead you deep inside the jungle, which might be troublesome if you are a first time visitor, as it is very easy to lose your way. You could base yourself in the tourist lodge, which offers comfortable cottages, or in the eco camp. Either way, you will be putting up well within the territory that tigers usually frequent, deep inside the jungle and far away from civilization. In the absolute dark, the silence can be deafening, with only the leaves rustling, which if you have unusual luck could be a Royal Bengal tiger! But the tigers are not the only animals to look out for. Nameri has the highest rate of human-elephant conflict. Even as you sit around the bonfire at night, it is quite usual to hear firecrackers from the nearby hamlet. This is an often-used trick to chase away herds of hungry elephants that trample through the paddy fields in search of food.

A prominent attraction of Arunachal Pradesh, the place is a must visit but only when you have the special permit from Office of the Deputy Commissioner in Tawang District, and then Indian army cantonment of Tawang. The place instantly evokes a feeling of patriotism, especially after watching soldiers protecting the border that too in such nerve-wracking weather condition. Also, it was through this pass, Dalai Lama entered India. Formed by a flash flood after an earthquake in the year 1950, Madhuri Lake is originally known as Shonga-tser Lake, which is one of the most popular lakes in Tawang, Arunachal Pradesh.

The stalactites and stalagmites caves have innumerable forms, shapes and sizes inside leaving one to imagine as many life forms as possible.
