The Land of Rhino

RinoA few centuries ago, the Indian one horned rhinoceros ranged across the northern Indian plains, in the wetlands of the rivers Indus, Ganga and the Brahmaputra.

Today, this survivor from prehistoric times is found only in pockets in the north-eastern state of Assam and in Nepal.

In Assam, their habitat is limited to the two National Parks - Kaziranga and Manas.

While Kaziranga National Park, along the main highway between Jorhat and Guwahati, is easily visited, the Manas Reserve in the foothills of the Himalayas is more remote.
