The rhinos leisurely coming to taste the salted soil below the tower, the gaurs or the Indian bison grazing at the distant meadow, a spotted deer suddenly jumps over a small stream and vanishes in the jungle, a flock of hornbill flies away, the monkeys become very active all of a sudden, an elephant trumpets nearby-the mood of the forest changes. Wait and be silent, you are going to experience a priceless sight of a majestic Royal Bengal Tiger, creeping out from a bush to drink water. Overnight at - Lataguri.
