Guwahati: Internationally-famous Kaziranga National Park, also a UNESCO World Heritage Site, reopened its gates to visitors for the tourists session.
Assam Forest Minister Parimal Suklabaidya, Agriculture Minister Atul Bora, PCCF (Wildlife) Amit Sahai attended the inaugural ceremony.
All COVID-19 protocols will be strictly followed. Officials have been instructed to ensure that tourists adhere to the norms.
The Kaziranga national park remained shut for the past several months due to the Covid-19 outbreak.
The park is initially opened from today with tourists getting partial access to only three ranges, while the rest of the ranges will be unlocked gradually.
Tourists, who flock to the largest national park in the northeast from the country and abroad, will be allowed to have only a jeep safari for now, but they won’t be able to access the much sought-after elephant ride.
The Manas National park, on the other hand, has also opened from today.
