    Great travelogue and pictures. Seeing this, I am very much tempted to post a travelogue (rather photologue) of my trip to Kaziranga last February. Kaziranga, incidentally, is just 90 kms from my place.

    Kaziranga National Park

    20 April 2012 [Friday]

    Prakash was a knowledgeable guide, keeping all the information about the flora and fauna of Kaziranga National Park at his finger tips. He had worked as a teacher in Nagaland earlier. I asked him a straightforward question: whether poaching was still rampant at Kaziranga National Park resulting in many rhinos without their horns. He informed me that there was no poaching now due to strict vigil by the forest department officials. Rhinos lose their horns due to natural reasons like viral attack or insect-bites. If poachers cut their horn, it would die immediately, he said. Here are the final set of photographs clicked at Kaziranga National Park.

    Thanks, Rituraj. Yes, I saw the destination boards of NH 37 announcing Jorhat all the way from Guwahati to Kaziranga.
    Thanks, Mahe, for the compliments.
    Thanks, AerialsInTheSky. Bhutan is still far away!;)

    Was there any incidents, in the past, where the elephants or rhinos attacked the visitors?
    Ali has become popular through this thread and now people will ask for Gypsi-with-Ali when they do booking. He might be an passionate person for his work.

    It looks strange that the border between the Rhino's (last one) upper part and lower part looks as if drawn with a scale. When they come out of water how they preserve that symmetry?

    Once again a :up for the photos

    Thanks, sungoa2010. Because the water level is always horizontal, it looks like it was drawn with a scale!:)

    Route Map Of The Trip

    This is the route on which I drove my Linea during this trip most of the times as Google Map shows some wrong route especially in West Bengal and I could not change it to the correct one. It could not calculate the distance from Thimphu to Punakha and could not show Chelela Pass. So, these places were not there in the route. Earlier, I had given link to the route map. But, Google Maps says, it was too large to process. grin.gif So, I removed the link.

    RouteMap.jpg

    Actual distance covered by my Linea from home to home [including the local drives] was 7876 km as against 7421 km shown in Google Map.

    I was out of city on 12th, 13th and 14th. Just back to my home. These three days, I was thinking that I would be missing your hot updates on this thread. But, I did not :). There is no update from you as well for these 3 days. Eagerly awaiting for other updates Ravi Ji.
