Wonderful journey through the wilderness of Assam...

The sub-tropical climate of Assam, the heavy rainfall in the monsoon season, the lush green forests and the powerful Brahmaputra river and its numerous tributaries have made this region the home of many different types of wildlife. Assam has now become a popular wildlife tourism destination due to its five national parks and fifteen sanctuaries. The Kaziranga National Park, Manas National Park, Dibru-Saikhowa National Park, Nameri National Park and the Rajiv Gandhi Orang National Park are five of the most popular tourist attractions in Assam. The Pobitora Wildlife Sanctuary, Dihing Patkai Wildlife Sanctuary, Gibbon Wildlife Sanctuary and Garampani Wildlife Sanctuary are the other offbeat wildlife habitats. The winter months, mainly October to April, are the best times to visit Assam, as the weather is sunny and pleasant. However, note that the national parks and other wildlife places remain open to tourists only from November to April. Visitors during these winter months can enjoy many activities to watch the wildlife, such as elephant rides, jeep safaris, jungle walks and boat safaris.
