Guwahati: Kaziranga National Park, famed for its one-horned rhino, will open for tourists on November 1.

The park, a world heritage site, was closed since May before the onset of the monsoon season, an official release said Monday.

Jeep safari and elephant ride for tourists will also start from the same day.

Kaziranga has been in the news during the past year following the killing of 36 rhinos by poachers.

The Manas National Park, another word heritage site, already reopened for tourists Sunday, sources said.
