World Heritage Sites in North East India
Kaziranga Wildlife Sanctuary, Assam
Located in the heart of Assam, Kaziranga National Park is one of the last unmodified natural areas in the north-eastern region of India, undisturbed by human presence. It houses the world’s largest population of one-horned rhinoceroses, along with mammals, elephants, panthers and bears, and thousands of birds. The park was declared as a Tiger Reserve in 2007.
