Moments spent in the traditional stilt houses on trees constructed near the pond, unrelenting melody of birds, sight of a wide variety of butterflies, a glimpse of the Hoolock Gibbons coupled with a glass of Bhim banana juice (Bhim banana, scientific name: Musa balbisiana Colla, is a heavily seeded variety of banana that grows naturally in the wild and nutritionally richer than other banana varieties found in Assam) taken with locally made pithas (a special type of baked pancakes made of rice flour) mesmerize the tourists visiting Kaziranga National Orchid and Biodiversity Park set in an ecotourism environment at Kaziranga.

    I went to orchid park with my family and friends. It’s really a good place after Kaziranga National Park. We liked Karbi dance. The park looks natural. They have one orchid gallery. A man in wheelchair explained very clearly about flowers. It’s really a good experience.

    I recently visited the park. I could spot few orchids like Paphiopedilum sp, Dendrobium sp, etc. many of the orchids flower in the month of April. Also, I could watch the famous bamboo dance of Assam. The photo gallery displays quality photographs along with their ID. It was a wonderful experience.

    I have visited this place with my college mates, our sir and ma’am. Very amazing and beautiful place – each and every part such as green house, photo gallery, folk dance cultural show, rock garden, boating facility etc. Love the nature while visiting there. I think such park should be present in every district.
