Manas National Park – Manas wildlife sanctuary
About 175 kilometers outside of Guwahari, one can find the 391 square meter Manas National Park which is known for its beauty and location since it is situated in the Himalayan foothills.
The history of this park can be dated back to 128 when it was declared a World Heritage site and then later in 1985 the government declared the Manas National Park a sanctuary. Since this time a great number of people have found their way to this North India wildlife preserve for an opportunity to see the wide variety of species which are found here. Of the many species available to be seen within the borders of this wildlife preserve, the rhinos, tigers and elephants are the most popular.
A visitor to the Manas National Park can see the illustrious one-horned rhino as well as other large animals like the Wild Buffalo, Golden Langur, Pigmy Hog, Hispid Hare, Hog Deer, Capped Langur as well as the tigers and guars.
