So here is the deal -

I plan to land at Guwahati on 19th Nov (12 noon). I will meet up friends at Kaziranga on 22nd Nov. We also need to reach Tinsukia by 24th Nov noon as we have week's trip to East Arunachal planned the next week.

So I have 19th/20th/21st for solo travel

I had earlier planned to go to Manas National Park, but have ruled it out as it might be difficult/too expensive for solo travel. Nameri is now my chose destination

Also, I can only travel by road/rail.

My first question - Are there any other places apart from/instead of Nameri that I can explore?

Second - How dependable are buses in Assam?

Third - Which of the following options is smarter/practical
Option 1 -
19th - Guwahati, roam around, stay over
20th - Travel to Nameri, stay over
21st - Roam around Nameri/Safari
22nd - Travel to Kaziranga
23rd - Safari at Kaziranga
24th - Travel to Tinsukia

Option 2 -
19th - Guwahati, travel to Nameri
20th - Roam around Nameri/Safari
21st - Roam around Nameri in morning, leave at lunch for Kaziranga
22nd - Safari at Kaziranga
23rd - Safari at Kaziranga
24th - Travel to Tinsukia
The Road goes ever on and on; Down from the door where it began.
Now far ahead the Road has gone; And I must follow, if I can,
Pursuing it with eager feet, Until it joins some larger way
Where many paths and errands meet; And whither then? I cannot say.

Do check the ground situation in Assam. Hopefully the current issue will get resolved by then

Q1. Let me know your interest, will help as much i can

A. Nameri National Park is about 35 Km from Tezpur, you can explore tezpur.
B. You may explore Nambar Reserve Forest, Golaghat.

Q2. Buses are dependable, Volvo and non ac super is widely available from guwahati to major destination. You will find city buses in Guwahati, but when you move towards Tezpur, tinsukia you will not find city buses. Secondly in Upper Assam you must be on time, major buses are used to make only one round trip i.e. came in morning and return on evening (garage to garage). for an example you are in Tinsukia and going to Jorhat, if you leave tinsukia by 6 am you will reach Jorhat by 11 AM . and that bus will return to tinsukia at 1 PM which will drop you at tinsukia by 6-7 PM. Unfortunately, you will not find "Share concept" in Assam.

Q3. Landed on 19th at what time??? assuming you are at 11:30 (Jet 619, first direct flight landing from mumbai)
19th - Roam around, and head towards Tezpur by last bus/Sumo
20th - Visit Nameri - Stay @ tezpur
21st - Explore Tezpur in first half and head towards Kaziranga
22nd- Explore Kaziranga with your friend.

Unfortunately i did not get leaves (bosses!). So had to cancel the Assam leg. Gonna go to Arunachal only.

However, this info is much appreciated.
