“Chol Mini Assam Jabo Deshe Boro Dukh Re…” The moment this legendary folksong beams from a music system, it almost transports the listener to a land of vast lush green tea gardens where all they have is only happiness!
With its abundant natural resources and a vibrant culture replete with diversity, Assam in northeast India is truly a land of happiness unbound.
Be it lush green tea gardens to mighty rivers, hill stations to world’s largest river island, the one-horned rhino in deep forests to the famous Kamakhya Temple ~ Assam has diverse offerings for tourists like no other state in India.
Interestingly, Assam has the second highest number of neighbouring states in India. It shares a border with Arunachal Pradesh, Nagaland, Manipur, Meghalaya, Tripura, Mizoram, and West Bengal. Then, there is the international border with Bhutan and Bangladesh. No wonder, Assam is called the gateway to the northeast, and the gateway to South Asia in making.
A single visit is not enough to relish all facets of Assam. But with Global Connection Siliguri right there to assist, you can surely start with the first visit right away. The major attractions in Assam are listed below.
