Located in the Himalayan foothills in western Assam, Manas was declared a National Park in 1990. The park is contiguous with the Buxa Tiger Reserve in West Bengal and in 2003, it was declared part of Chirang-Ripu Elephant Reserve which serves as the international corridor for elephant migration between Indian and Bhutan. Spread over an area of 500 sq. km, the park has extensive grasslands and is famous for its unique scenic beauty. The park is home to more than 20 endangered species. Located 176 km from Guwahati. Barpeta Road Railway Station is 20 km. away. Best season to visit: November to April
Musa Jungle Retreat is nestled between the park in the north and one of the oldest tea estates in India in the south. It is almost literally an arm's length away from the park, offering views of fauna and birds like rhino, deer, wild pig, peacock etc and more. Musa is modeled like a forest village offering comfortable living in 20 bungalow style cottages with high ceilings, modern rooms and exclusive traditional verandah.
The park is closed to visitors from 1st June to 30th September every year, due to the monsoons and regeneration of the wildlife species.
