Getting There

Rail : The nearest railhead is Saloni & Rangapara. The park has only a small rest house so it is better to stay at Tezpur and visit this park.

Road : 2 buses from Orang Chariali, one at morning and the other at evening ply regularly for Orang. Visiting Orang by bus requires staying for a night at Orang.

Night stay at the 2 forest bungalows of Orang, without electricity & modern amenities is nothing but a thrilling experience. At the entrance gate, the Silbari forest bungalow is simply excellent. Another one is 5-km interior of the forest called Sat Simul bungalow.

One-Horned Rhinos, Elephants, Leopards & Migratory Birds
