Northeast India forms one of the major regions of tropical forests in India, especially the species-rich rain forests. There are a total of 16 national parks and 54 wildlife sanctuaries in the Northeastern region of India. Assam itself has five national parks and 18 wildlife sanctuaries.
These jungles are home to many mammals, birds and plants. The great Indian rhinoceros is the pride of UNESCO world heritage site Kaziranga National Park. The Royal Bengal tiger, Asiatic elephant, Asian water buffaloes, hoolock gibbon, barking deer, swamp deer, leopards, bears, pigmy hogs, giant squirrels, Assamese macaque, rhesus macaque, stump-tailed macaque, mongoose, red panda, and Chinese pangolin are some of the other animals sighted in these forests.
The Northeast is an attractive destination for the avid bird watcher, with an outstanding array of native and migrating birds. Different seasons will tell the fascinating story of global avian migration. Among giant hornbills, jungle fowls, egrets, pelicans, falcons, bee-eaters, herons and ospreys, you will be amazed at the variety of birdlife.
From grassland to meadows, marshes, swamps and forests, this region boasts of the richest reservoir of plant diversity in India. Some species have only recently been discovered and documented.
