This week, I've been lucky enough to be travelling in northeastern India, in Assam - home to the magnificent Kaziranga National Park, declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO and home to the Indian one-horned rhinoceros (pictured above). This magnificent park is located on the banks of the Brahmaputra river and covers 166 square miles and the one-horned rhinoceros is flourishing here, along with elephants, tigers, wild buffalo and hundreds of bird species. Assam is also famous for its tea plantations, which I'll write about soon.
