Guwahati: In a bid to exploit its tourism potential, the Kaziranga National Park and Tiger Reserve authorities have allowed exploration with bikes and boats while bicycle tracks are being finalised. One can also go for trekking. But the new activities are beyond the 1,302 sq km Kaziranga’s core area of 482 sq km.
In November, the park authorities launch a boat safari at Bhomoraguri after the addition of 3,053 hectares to the park. The opening of the Bhomoraguri wildlife beat office under the Nagaon Wildlife division of Kaziranga made this possible.
Elephants and jeeps are no longer the only modes of regulated transport to call on the rhino in Kaziranga National Park and Tiger Reserve.
Now, the tourists will be able to see river dolphins at a specific point from the boats, which are currently available for use.
Along the similar lines, bicycle facilities have been initiated to explore the outer reaches of the perk. The bicycles can be used to explore the area from the Karbi Anglong side.
After 8 months of being closed due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Kaziranga National Park was reopened for tourists on October 21.
