The North bank and Kaziranga-Karbi anglong
Located in the foothills of the Himalayas of northeast India, the North Bank Landscape’s lush evergreen forests and grasslands are home to extraordinary wildlife: tigers, rhinos and one of the region’s largest populations of elephants. It is also a region populated by millions of people, including many distinct tribal communities.
On the south side of the mighty Brahmaputra River
lies the Kaziranga-Karbi Anglong Landscape, with 70% of the world’s greater one-horned rhinos and densest populations of tigers. Kaziranga National Park
, along with the connecting Karbi-Anglong Hills, is one of the few places on Earth where one finds such a diverse range of large mammals: tigers, elephants, rhinos, wild buffaloes and swamp deer. Of the 500 bird species in Kaziranga-Karbi Anglong, 25 are globally threatened.
