Manas National Park, located besides the Himalayan foothills that rise in Bhutan, is one of the country’s lesser know and non-touristy wildlife area. An UNESCO recognized natural world heritage site, Manas holds in its dense jungles, like a careful secret, an incredible diversity of flora and fauna. It’s jungles and grasslands teem with predators and preys, and myriad varieties of colorful and exotic birds. Once was a hunting ground for the kings, Manas is one of India’s most scenic wildlife protected area. The national park continues into Bhutan where it is known as Royal Manas National Park which is perhaps the only region in the world where tigers are found way up in the Himalayan highs.
The sanctuary has recorded 55 species of mammals, 380 species of birds, 50 of reptiles, and 3 species of amphibians. Out of this wildlife, 21 mammals are India’s Schedule I mammals and 31 of them are threatened. The park is well known for its rare and endangered wildlife which is not found anywhere else in the world like the Assam Roofed Turtle, Hispid Hare, Golden Langur and Pygmy Hog. Other majesties of the forest include tigers, elephants, leopards, rhinos, deers, primates and numerous birds such as the Bengal florican and hornbills.
