Assam Information

Assam, remote, exotic and extravaganza of landscape scenery lies in the extreme north-east corner of India. Lying at the foothills of the Himalaya, Assam is linked to the rest of India by an isthmus winding its way between Bhutan, Bangladesh and Nepal. Assam is a cool land where clouds float at you feet, hills emerge from its bosom and soar high like a chorus and panoram changes with unbelievable frequency. It is here that a visitor feels the pristine freshness of nature. Besides being a tourist paradise, Assam now has very many industries. The places worth visiting are the following:

Assam Tourism Information

Guwahati

This Capital of Assam is also the gateway of north east India. Places of tourist interest in and around Guwahati are the famous Kamakhya Temple, the State Zoo, Soalkuchi, Chanduhi Lake and Hajo-Pao-Mecca It is well connected by air, train to Delhi, Calcutta and has good hotels.

Kaziranga National park

This famous sanctuary, bounded by Brahmaputra River and Miker Hills, sprawls into 430 sq. km. of sheer thick forests, elephant, grasslands, rugged reeds, mellow and marshes and shallow pools. Seated on the howdah (seat on the back) of an elephant you encounter the real wild life of the jungles. It is 217 km. from Guwahati which is an airport. There are regular buses from Guwahati. Kaziranga has Tourist Bungalows, forest lodges, etc., for visitor’s stay.

Jorhat

This beautiful tea-town with bracing environs is just 90 km. from Kaziranga. The largest river island Brahmaputra, Majuli is just 20 km. from here. There are many Vaishnava monasteries.

Like Guwahati, Jorhat is directly linked by air with Calcutta. Guwahati is a full fledged railway station while for Jorhat the nearest railhead is Mariani Junction. Both are well-connected by bus routes as well.

Other important towns of Assam are Dibrugarh, Sibsagar, Silchar and Tejpur but baring some scenic spots they do not have much attraction for the tourists.
