Along with the present boundary of the park, 429 sq. km (166 sq miles) has been added and advised to separate the national park, so as to offer extensive habitat for growing population of wildlife or as a passageway for the safety of animals to Karbi Anglong Hills. The entire area of park is confined by the Brahmaputra River that forms the eastern & northern boundaries, and the Mora Diphlu that forges the southern boundary.
