In the wild zone!
Wondrous Fauna !!!!
Manas Tiger ReserveManas is noted for its population of the rare golden langur - found only in this part of the country. They are often spotted in the tall trees. Other primates in the Park include the capped langur, Assamese macaque, the slow loris and the hoolock gibbon. These are rarely seen but the whoooping call of the hoolock gibbon can be heard resounding through the forest. The Reserve is also home to the attractive red panda but these are only seen occasionally in the higher elevations. Manas is a very special bioshpere, for it harbours twenty species of birds and animals that are highly endangered and listed in the IUCN Red Data Book. These include the hispid hare and the pigmy hog. The lush forest canopy at Manas shelters colourful birds - the giant hornbills, both pied and grey varieties, pheasants, jungle fowl and scarlet minivet being among them. The water birds along the rivers include brahminy ducks, mergansers and a range of egrets, herons and pelicans. Over 2840 sq.km in area, Manas is a fascinating tiger reserve.

Spectral Flora !!!!
The area of Manas has roughly 45% grassland and 55% tree land as wildlife habitat. The river course may have about 100 sq.km. of reparian forests of grass and primary succession of tree cover, which is probably the most suitable water buffalo habitat any where and providing by far the best habitat for the tiger, where the concentration of the species is the highest.

Best time to visit:
The best season to visit Manas park is between October to April. Rest of the year it is off season for the national park. Avoid the monsoon as many parts of the park is flooded and animals are not easy to spot.

How to get there:
By air: Guwahati is the nearest airport at 176 kms.

By rail: The nearest town and rail-head is Barpeta Road, 41 kms away.

Manas Tiger ReserveBy Road: Manas is well connected by network of roads which connect the place with other cities and towns in the state.

Within the Park, riding elephants and boats on the rivers are available for transport

Accommodation:
Two forest lodges maintained by the tourism department provide comfortable accommodation near the park. The first lodge is located at Barpeta Road and the second at Bansbari. The state department also has two bungalows at Mathanguri inside the forest. There is no provision for catering at these bungalows and lodges, so needful provisions for food must be made. Cooks and chefs are available for a small fee.
