Manas national park | Welcome to the Great Outdoors!
  • Manas national park is located on a gentle slope in the foothills of the Himalaya. Situated in the state of Assam in North-East India, a biodiversity hotspot: where wooded hills give way to alluvial grasslands and tropical forests. The park borders the Royal Manas National Park in Bhutan, name of the park is originated from the "Manas River". The Manas River is a major tributary of Brahmaputra River, which passes through the heart of the national park.

    The park is known for its rare and endangered endemic wildlife such as the Assam roofed turtle, hispid hare, golden langur and pygmy hog. Park is also famous for its population of the wild water buffalo and has the largest population of endangered Bengal Floricans. Because of its exceptional biodiversity, scenery, and variety of habitats, Manas National Park is a biosphere reserve and declared as a "UNESCO World Heritage Site" in 1992.

    Manas national park is spread over the area of 500 sq km and divided into three ranges. The western range is based at Panbari, the central at Bansbari near Barpeta Road, and the eastern at Bhuiyapara near Pathsala. The ranges are not well connected; while two major rivers need to be forded in going from the centre to the Panbari, there is a rough trail (the Daimari road) connecting the centre to the eastern range. Most visitors come to Bansbari and then spend some time inside the forest at Mathanguri on the Manas river at the Bhutan border.

    Park has recorded 55 species of mammals, 380 species of birds, 50 of reptiles, and 3 species of amphibians. Out of these wildlife, 21 mammals are India's Schedule I mammals and 31 of them are threatened. Nurture your heart and soul, treat your eyes with the joy of haven-like surroundings.
