Amazing wilderness off the beaten track

Royal Manas National Park

Royal Manas National Park provides an amazing area for wildlife studies and holidays.

Amazing wilderness off the beaten track

Royal Manas National Park (RMNP), covers 1,057 sq km linking in its northern area with JSWNP and also shares a boundary with Assam enabling it to be continuous with the Manas Tiger Reserve of the Indian World Heritage Site. RMNP connects in the north-west with JSW National Park, through biological corridors to Phibsoo Wildlife Sanctuary in the south-west, Thrumshing La in the northern centre and across to Khaling Nature Reserve in the south-east. On the southern borders of the park there are wide river beds. Up to an altitude of 1,00m, there are vast areas of tropical monsoon forest broken only by swathes of natural grassland. The land continues to climb through tropical moist forests then around 2,000m it passes through temperate broadleaf forests before finally reaching dense forests of oak.

Unexplored wilderness

Unlike Bhutan’s other national Parks, Royal Manas is relatively unexplored by naturalists. Presently there are predicted over 530 bird species, 300 plants and 58 mammals including the rare Golden Langur, Pygmy Hog, Binturong, and Clouded Leopard.
