Manas NP, Assam: A Trip Report from a visit in December 2019

A visit to Manas in December last year – one of those scenic national parks that straddle the rich floodplains of a Himalayan River (Manas in this case) and the biodiverse Eastern Himalayas – was productive for commoner mammals of the region, but none of the local specialities that Manas is known to host (Golden Langur, Hispid Hare, Pygmy Hog, Clouded Leopard among that fantastic line up, although, admittedly with limited effort looking for them).

    You had a Wonderful expedition. The information is exhaustive and valuable for future explorers. Recently before the outbreak of covid-19 I also had an glance experience of the route but we trekked till opposite of Royal Manas NP in Bhutan side before Mathanguri and went back to Panbang.
    Thank you

      Thank you for your kind comments and glad that you found the information useful. I hope to explore the Bhutan side (and the wonderful country as I have heard from other visitors) sometime – hopefully not in the not too distant future!

      Did you get to see any interesting mammals on your visit?
      Kind regards
