It has tropical rainforests, deciduous forests, riverine grasslands, bamboo orchards and numerous wetland ecosystems — many now protected as Nationals Parks and Wildlife Sanctuaries. For a close look at the unique and vivid wildlife of Assam we recommend the following game parks, which we can proudly say are among India’s very best:
