Classified as a tiger reserve and a world heritage site, Kaziranga National Park is in the Indian state of Assam.
The park, which covers 170 square miles, is also an important bird conservation area. Kaziranga is home to around 2,400 rhinos, and one of the highest densities of tigers in any protected area. Viewing the many animals is possible with several observation towers throughout the park, as well as jeep and elephant guided tours.
There are several tourist lodges in and around the park, and a recently established Orchid and Biodiversity Park at nearby Durgapur. Kaziranga is open from October to April, to avoid the monsoons.Places nearby:
