The northeast India has always intrigued millions with its overwhelming greeneries and stunning landscapes. So, with an abundance of leisure time in my hand and being an avid travel blogger, I decided to explore Kaziranga from the city of Guwahati, a popular destination for Assam tourism. Although there is no dearth of beautiful places to visit in Guwahati, the enigma of Kaziranga pulled me more which is known all over the world as the land of one-horned rhinoceros. Moreover, since I have already visited the famous Guwahati tourist places like the Kamakhya Temple, the Assam State Museum and a few more, I was determined to explore something new and raw. I contacted one of the reputed northeast travel agency named Nexplore to arrange a short trip for me and my family to Kaziranga.
Mesmerizing Elephant Safari at Kaziranga National Park packed with a raw energy
On 23 June, we started our journey to Kaziranga National Park by a taxi arranged by Nexplore Travel agency. It takes around five hours to reach Kaziranga. The moment we step outside, we felt like we were on a wonderland full of nature’s bounty. With everything taken care of by our tour agency and no worries about searching the best hotel and resorts among the available in Kaziranga national park. We headed towards Jupuri ghar resort in Kaziranga. It a very beautiful and homely resort run by Assam Tourism.
Next day we get up early and rush to the elephant safari point at Bagori around 6 am. After few minutes in between mild fog , we find ourself in an elephant back inside the dense jungle of Kaziranga National Park. The sight was truly amazing! There were innumerable rhinoceros for and yes, parrots, Hog deer, buffalos. We even spotted a baby rhino gently following his mother amidst the tall elephant grasses. However, we were unable to catch a view of any tiger, but overall it was a refreshing early morning experience. The chirping birds, the forest crisscrossed with rivers and the sight of plenty of wild animals made the start of our day quite memorable.
Rich flora and fauna in the orchid park
After finishing the elephant safari, we headed to the orchid park. It is a botanical garden with a variety of orchid and other variety of flowers. Although the park is only a few years old, we found the park with some of the most colourful blooming flowers.
There is even a dedicated play area for children and boating facilities. We got a chance to gorge on the delectable authentic Assamese food at the park. We even enjoyed the traditional dance that we watched at the open theater within the park. With the park located in a picturesque location, the rich flora and fauna made it a heaven for the nature lovers.
Finally, we concluded our memorable journey by catching a jeep safari in the afternoon in the central range of Kaziranga National Park to witness more wild animals closely. Yes that was amazing. We enjoyed vivid flora and fauna of Kaziranga National Park very closely . Have a glimpse of lots of wild animals and birds and large water birds called pelicans too. As the evening sun set we call it a memorable day and back to our resort for a refreshing night sleep.
