A land enchanted and blessed by the Gods themselves, the Indian state of Assam has a very rich culture & heritage. Assam is gifted with scenic natural beauty and enchants you with its gorgeous greenery, spectacular landscapes, dense forests, aromatic tea gardens, and rich flora and fauna.
Assam offers a multifaceted experience for travelers from all walks of life, be it the adrenaline junkie craving for some hard-core adventure in the famous Kaziranga wildlife sanctuary, or a spiritual traveler seeking solace by visiting the sacred Maa Kamakhya Mandir – the holy abode for Sati’s disintegrated body part, considered as one of the most famous worship spot for enlightening spiritual powers.
Guwahati is the capital and the most important city in Assam that also serves as the gateway to the other six northeastern Indian states of Nagaland, Manipur, Tripura, Arunachal Pradesh, Mizoram, and Meghalaya also revered as the seven sisters. Guwahati is a very important business hub that is the prime location of many commercial, educational & cultural institutes and now ranks among the fastest developing Indian cities.

Geographically, Assam can be divided into four main regions that cater to specific tourist interests – Upper Assam, Central Assam Hills, Southern Assam Hills and Lower Assam. Guwahati – the most popular city of Assam dates back to more than two thousand years and is today emerging as the ultimate urban hot spot located near the mighty Brahmaputra River.

Another great thing that Assam has to offer is the world-famous Assam Tea and when you are in Assam, you must invariably try it.

If you are planning a trip to Assam during the Tea Festival, ‘Guwahati Tea Auction Center’ (GTAC) in Guwahati, is a must-visit place. It boasts of being the largest in India of its kind. Not many people know that during the 19th century, Assam tea revolutionized the world’s tea-drinking habits by producing different exotic tea variants like green & white tea, each with their own taste & distinctive features.
Assam is also blessed with an abundance of natural mineral resources like petroleum and takes pride in its crude petroleum production oil fields at Digboi. It is the second oldest oil well in the world along with four other oil refineries located at Guwahati, Duliajan, Bongaigaon, and Numaligarh.
However, these are just a few reasons that make the mystical land of Guwahati, and the rest of Assam, worth visiting. Nevertheless, there are several more things to explore in the region, which will definitely give every discerning traveller a reason to visit it.
