Kaziranga

Essence and Beauty of Nature – Postcards from Kaziranga and Difloo Hathipahar

What a wonderful National Park with dense jungle, vast grasslands, beautiful water bodies and rich wildlife! It’s flanked by Karbi Anglong range on the south side with the mighty Brahmaputra towards the north. The sunrise from the tea garden bungalow we stayed in, bordering the park, was spectacular! Do watch the video clip and listen to the birds. We really miss all this in the cities. Similarly, the night sky was teaming with stars! The trip was so very refreshing! I strongly recommend a visit. The time is just right. It will get very cold soon.
