One of India's most treasured national parks is Kaziranga National Park. Kaziranga
is where nature unfolds in its most natural form in millions of colors. It is also where man and nature meet. This highly regarded national
park of India can be found in India's north east, in the Nagoan district in the state Of Assam. Let's return to 1904, when this wonderful
wildlife sanctuary was established. It was then declared a National Park a little over 68 years later.
History Of Kaziranga National Park
It is worth noting that the park is home to two-thirds of the endangered Indian onehorned rhinoceros population. In
the year 2015,
the population of rhino in the park was at 2401. In 2006, it was also designated as a tiger reserve.
This means that the park has the highest concentration of tigers anywhere in the world. It
is home to large numbers of elephants, wild water buffaloes, and swamp deer. Kaziranga
has been designated a forest reserve and wildlife sanctuary in the years 1908-1950. Birdlife
International Society has designated the park as an important bird habitat because it houses many species of migrating birds and inhabitant birds. The
sanctuary is located on the banks the river Brahmaputra and has four types of vegetation. You will find the tropical moist mixed deciduous and tropical semi-evergreen
forest with 41% tall grasses, 29% open rainforest, 11% short grasses, and the rest covered by rivers and water bodies. The park's stunning array of fauna and flora adds to its scenic beauty.
