UNESCO World Heritage Site, the Kaziranga National Park will be partially reopened for tourists from today.
Divisional Forest Officer, Rohini Ballav Saikia, said that only Kohora and Bagori ranges of the park will be opened for tourists and the other ranges at a later date.
However, due to inclement weather road condition only jeep safaris will be allowed. The jeep safari in Kaziranga range, Kohora will be open up to Vaisamari and in Bagori, the safari will be open up to Dungaree’s watchtower and Bimali Tiniali until further orders.
Home to the world’s largest population of one-horned rhino, the park is closed after May every year due to the monsoon. This time during the floods 70 per cent of the Kaziranga National Park and its 95 camps was submerged in water which led to the death of over 200 animals.
