The beauty, the bounty and the serenity of Manas in Assam is beyond compare for its wilderness. The unfathomable depths of the forest will take you to another world and work its magic spell upon you for sure. It is one of India’s important grassland colonies for birds. Birds, which are so range restricted and globally threatened that they reside only in this patch of grassland area like the; Bengal Florican, Jerdon’s Babbler, Slender-billed Babbler, Black-breasted Parrotbill, Swamp Francolin. As we go further deep inside the forest; big beasts like Rhinos, Elephants and Wild Buffalos can be seen and heard from the patches.
This patch of woodland and grassland complex at Manas in Assam host more than 500 avian species, which is nearly 38% of the avian fauna found in the entire Indian subcontinent. The continuous forest goes inside Bhutan hills as Royal Manas National Park.
Melodious Silver-breasted Broadbiil, chirps of Sultan Tit, cacophony of Swamp Francolin flocks or continuous sweet note of Barbets keep the jungle alive with dulcet tones always. While in Manas we will be extra careful because, at some turn we might get surprised, unexpectedly, by the beauty and awe of the rarer of the rarest bird like Hispid Hare. At night just outside the forest, at the village fringes, we shall not miss the call of Savanna Nightjar and Long-tailed Nightjar.
Our drives will accompany us for the entire day so that we can make the most of this jungle trip. In a five day tour we will spend nearly 50 hours in this park. So for all you bird lovers, this is the chance…. Do not miss it by any means as your craving for bird photography and bird watching will surely be satiated here.
