Spreading over the vast and fertile land along the length of Brahmaputra River, Assam is the gateway to the northeast of India. This place is crafted with sheer love and affection from the Mother Earth. Distinctive aroma of Assam tea and brilliant view of its thick jungles, are just enough to offer a heavenly experience.
Assam is located at the foothills of eastern Himalayas which is the largest and most easily asseccible part of northeast India. Most fertile parts of this state either belong to Brahmaputra Valley or Barak Valley. Total coverage area for Assam is approximately 30,285 square kilometres. Assam is bordered by Bhutan from north side and by Bangladesh from south.
A trip to Assam remains unfinished until one goes for a visit to the Kaziranga National Park. This park is meant to protect and conserve the population of one-horned Indian rhinoceros. Around Kaziranga National Park and Manas National Park, the tribal group, Bodo sustains their economy and lives through the wildlife tourism. These two parks have been granted with the title of World Heritage Sites by UNESCO.
People and culture of Assam are both strong believers of co-existence. Friendly and hospitable locals of Assam will leave a permanent impression on one's mind with their simple and honest lifestyle. Their artistic Bihoo dance forms, mouth-watering cuisines and glorified heritage mark the amazing combination of ancient and modern culture.
Nature here is very calm and composed without any disturbance from the outside world. A typical Assamese landscape consists of stretches of lavish green tea estates and picturesque glistening rice fields back-dropped perfectly by the dreamy blue mountains of Arunachal in north, highlands of Nagaland and Meghalaya in south.
Feel the softness of Assam silks while taking a refreshing sip from a cup of Assam tea to cherish your stay at this beautiful land of mountains, rivers and jungles.
