Going Places - Kaziranga

I am taking part in the Write Tribe Festival of Words from September 1 - 7. The theme for this festival is "7" and mine is:

Going Places -  7 journeys I would like to take.


My 5th journey is a little different. Leaving behind the yatras and the mountains, this is a journey into the wild, into nature. This is Kaziranga!

There are many wildlife parks in India but I've always been fascinated by the Kaziranga National Park in Assam.

I think Kaziranga has it all, including tigers, leopards, elephants, deer, monkeys in particular the Hoolock Gibbon, the only ape found in India. 

But the animal that I really want to see is the Great Indian One-horned Rhino that is found (in India) only at Kaziranga.

And then while I'm there I thought I would throw in a tea estate as well.

Journey 1 = Krishna Yatra
Journey 2 = Ram Yatra
Journey 3 = Shiva Yatra
Journey 4 = Himalayan Adventure

(my 7 journeys series can be viewed here )

Day 4 posts that I enjoyed
Kajal's A Regal Affair - You'll have to read her post to find out what that regal affair is
Roshni's Favourite Childhood Movies - And some of them are mine too.


Have a terrific day and check out some day 5 posts.

Warm Regards

  1. Suzy , I have been to Kaziranga Park and we went on elephant back ride to watch the animals at 6 in the morning and we had to maintain absolute silence lest the animals get scared and run away.Lovely place.

  3. Inspite of having visited Assam, we missed Kaziranga since it was raining and the Park was also closed. Watching animals is a wonderful way to observe them doind their stuff. Somehow I hate the idea of a zoo but Sanctuary parks are okay.

    Joy always,
    Susan

  8. I've been to Kazironga, Suzy and it is beautiful! We had an elephant ride there and a crazy ride in a jeep when we went looking for the rhinos. Yes, we saw them. The government guest house we stayed at was fantastic with charming accommodation and great food. We saw massive betel vines along the tea gardens.

    I love your theme of places for the 7-day festival!
