Manas National Park

Rhinos at Manas National Park, Tours to India, India tourThe picturesque Manas National Park is situated in the foothills of Himalayas. Located in north eastern state of Assam, Manas covers an area of 519.77 square kilometres out of which 360 square kilometres form the core area. The Indo-Bhutan international border splits Manas territory. As a result, one part of Manas falls in India while the other part falls in Bhutan. Manas was declared a national park in the year 1980 and is covered under Government of India's Project Tiger. It may also be mentioned that due to its breathtaking natural beauty and rich flora, Manas has also been declared a biosphere reserve along with being a world natural heritage site. The fauna of Manas is excitingly diverse.

The headquarters of the park is located in Barpeta road. All necessary clearances and permits can be arranged from here before going to the park.

Manas National Park, Tours to India, India TourBasic Guidelines -
» Please enter the Park only after taking the necessary permits and follow all the rules.
» Drive slowly in the Park. In this way you can see, observe and enjoy the most, without disturbing the wildlife.
» Respect the wild animals and maintain a safe distance from them. Remember, you are in their home and they get first priority.
» Switch off your car stereo or transistor. The quieter you are, the more the chances of your seeing wildlife.
» Wear dull-coloured clothes. Bright colours alarm most wild animals and they flee.
» Don’t carry guns or other weapons. Feel free to shoot with a camera instead..
» Do not smoke or light campfires in the forest. Accidental fires can destroy this wonderful jungle in no time.
» Don’t get off your vehicle at any point in the Park except where it’s allowed. This is for your own safety and the safety of wildlife.
» Help keep the park pollution-free. While inside the park, please put your entire non-biodegradable litter (tin cans, plastic, glass bottles, metal foils etc.) into the bag provided and dispose of it on your way out.
» Keep to the specified roads and trails. Driving off track you may trample growing trees and cause disturbance to resting animals and their youngs.
