An overview of the climate in Kaziranga National Park

Kaziranga, located in the Nagaon and Golaghat districts of Assam, is a well-known national park in India and a UNESCO World Heritage Site. It is a safe haven for the endangered one-horned rhinoceroses, while it also provides a highly protected natural habitat to various animals, such as, swamp deer, elephants, tigers, and water buffaloes. Plenty of small water bodies can be found in this region, besides the tall elephant grass, tropical moist broad-leaf forests, and marshland.

Being located in one of the rainiest regions on the planet, Kaziranga gets about 250 centimetres of rain annually. Monsoon makes its presence felt in this national park from the month of June till September. From November to February, this region experiences mild and dry winter. Summers arrive in Kaziranga in the month of March and continue till May. The hot season is dry and windy with temperatures rarely rising beyond a level of 37-Degree Celsius.
Towards the end of monsoons, rhinoceroses and other herbivorous animals rush towards the grassland for grazing. In the hot season, the animals choose to remain close to the water bodies. An accommodation in any of the popular resorts in Kaziranga would give tourists the opportunity to watch these animals in action with the help of wildlife tours.
