Manas National Park Hiking

Northwest of Guwahati, the Manas National Park is known for hiking and trekking in the India state of Assam. It is a 500 square kilometer national park known for the golden langur and Assam Roofed Turtle.

Manas Tiger reserve is 176 km from Guwahati, from where one can drive down to the park. The journey lasts approximately five and a half hours. The nearest rail junction is at Barpeta Road, 136 km from Guwahati. Guwahati in turn is a well-connected rail junction as well as an airport. The regular bus services to the park by the state transport as well as the private operators is yet another option.

Note: Because of ethnic problems the opening and closing of the park has become erratic since 1989. It is best to conduct an enquiry before embarking on a journey.

Note: In any national park known to have lions or tigers, hikers need to exercise extreme caution. It is highly recommended to us a park-approved guide prior to hiking or trekking in these regions.
