While travelling towards Upper Assam from Guwahati, you come across a little hilly area, known as Burapahar, crossing which you enter the World Heritage Site- Kaziranga National Park. This area was known for years in the 60s and 70s as a haunted place and very prone to accidents at night.
Kaziranga National Park (Assamese: Kazirônga Rastriyô Uddyan) is a national park in the Golaghat and Nagaon districts of the state of Assam, India. A World Heritage Site, the park hosts two-thirds of the world's Great One-horned Rhinoceroses. Kaziranga boasts the highest density of tigers among protected areas in the world and was declared a Tiger Reserve in 2006. The park is home to large breeding populations of elephants, wild water buffalo, and swamp deer. Kaziranga is recognized as an Important Bird Area by Birdlife International for conservation of avifaunal species. Compared to other protected areas in India, Kaziranga has achieved notable success in wildlife conservation. Located on the edge of the Eastern Himalaya biodiversity hotspot, the park combines high species diversity and visibility.
