The recent screening of Deluge on BBC2 captured some stunning scenes of Kaziranga National Park, India in the full flow of the monsoon rains.

With rivers bursting banks, elephants are filmed in their yearly plight to escape rising waters and flee to the hills. The screening of this episode put Kaziranga firmly on the map. Visit this region of  Assam and cruise along the Brahmaputra river with Steppes Travel – avoiding the rain.
