Nokrek National Park attracts tourists in large numbers

Nokrek National Park is located at the highest peak in Garo hills. Carpeted with lush, green vegetation, the biosphere reserve is home to different species of wild animals including elephants and Hoolock Gibbons to name a few. The park has earned the reputation for Memang Narang (orange of the spirits in local language), which is considered mother of germoplasm for Citrus Indica. The park is spread across an area of 47.48 square kms and is lined with rows of varied citrus fruit trees. All important rivers and streams of the Garo Hills region rise from the Nokrek Range, of which the river Simsang, known as Someshwari, is the most prominent. The park and its adjoining villages attract tourists from all walks of life.
