Assam plans for a Kaziranga-Manas tourist circuit

By The Assam Tribune

GUWAHATI, March 22 (PTI): In order to woo more tourists, the Assam government plans to create a tourist circuit comprising Kaziranga National Park and Manas Tiger Reserve at a cost of Rs 50 crore.

The Centre has agreed to the proposal for the creation of the tourist circuit, officials said here.

At present tourists find it difficult to include the Kaziranga forest and the Manas Tiger Reserve in their itinerary as the distance between the two is an energy-sapping 350 kms. They can, at best, visit only one spot at a time.

Now, officials said, with the creation of the tourist circuit, tourists would be provided with food and lodging along the way as well as easy transportation facilities.

Another spot being groomed for tourists is the picturesque hill station of Haflong in the North Cachar hills district. The project envisages development of eco-adventure tourism destinations along with a helipad.
