Nameri National Park

Nameri National Park, Guwahati

Nameri National Park is a park easily combined and done with Kaziranga. Just two hours of drive from Kaziranga is this beautiful little paradise where you can do a walking safari, a rafting safari, and lot of birding. Angling has recently been suspended since this park came under the umbrella of Project Tiger. Golden Mahasheer known as Tiger of the HImalayan rivers is the star attraction in Jia Bhoroli river that passes through the park. it is like rafting in paradise. Both sides a pristine forest, view of the Himalayas on one side, and yes be cautious Elephants are seen in the vicinty. When I (Sharad Vats) stepped out from the boat, i was pleasantly surprised to see fresh pug marks of a Tiger, as if he just had come a while back to quench his thirst. Nameri shares boundary with Pakhui Wildlife Sanctuary of Arunachal Pradesh. With more than 320 bird species recorded, one can say Nameri is a birder's paradise and also home to Tigers, Elephants, Leopards, Sloth Bears,Dhole, HImalayan Black Bear and Pygmy Hog.
