Welcome to Assam

Assam is often referred to as a land of magic. Much of this magic lies in her breathtaking natural beauty. Abounding as it does, in hills and dales with the mighty Brahmaputra and its numerous tributaries flowing gracefully through variegated terrain, Assam presents an enchanting topographical spectacle. Assam's human landscape too is no less colourful. The fertile land with a warm hospitable humid climate has been a meeting ground for races and cultures since the beginning of human history. Because of this assimilation, this land has a varied and interesting culture which is evident from the numerous festivals, dances and other art forms. Majuli, the largest river island on the mighty Brahmaputra is the seat of Vaishnava culture. Kamakhya, in Guwahati, the state capital, is an important 'shakti' shrine in the country. As with the human landscape, nature has endowed it with a rich variety of wild life and vegetation. From the famous one-horned rhinoceros in Kaziranga to an impressive array of bird life, from rain forests to ferns and orchids, Assam has indeed a lot to offer the naturalist.
