Full of riverine grasslands and moist deciduous forests, the place is especially famous for its Asiatic one-horned rhino, and also houses many other mammals, reptiles, insects and birds, including the majestic Asian elephants, the royal Bengal tigers and the Great Indian Hornbill.

Best of wild. What you get at gorumara, no other national parks can offer. Must visit. Rhinos, elephant and bisons in a single frame. Snow capped mountains, tea gardens and huge river beds all together.
