Kaziranga National Park, in Assam, that had been closed since the month of May, for its annual monsoon break, reopens for tourists from today. The National Park, popular for housing One-Horned Rhino, will also allow elephant rides and Jeep Safari from today itself.

 

To mark the re-opening of the World heritage Site, Kaziranga National Park, State Forest Minister Rockybul Hussain visited the park and inaugurated the jeep safari and elephant rides in the presence of all the senior forest officials.

 

According to the reports, the re-opening of Kaziranga National Park has led to the gain in momentum of the tourist industry in the state of Assam.

 

Kaziranga National Park found itself surrounded with controversy during the previous year after the reports of killing of 36 rhinos by poachers made the news. Another World Heritage Site, The Manas National Park, has also re-opened after its formal annual monsoon break.
