ASSAM – visit the valley of colors

Assam is a Northeastern Indian state that rests beneath the Shiwalik Foothills. The region of Assam is a beautiful province that indulges its visitors in an ethereal display of colors. With rich emerald valleys, boundless azure skies and red frothy waters, Assam manages to enrapture its viewers without fail. The entire domain is geographically divided into Upper, Central, Southern & Lower Assam. It covers endless stretches of Himalayan thickets that inhabit rare & exotic fauna, including the endangered One Horned Rhinoceros.

Assam is a versatile destination that is bound to please a band of cultural enthusiasts, adrenaline junkies & nature lovers. But irrespective of your interests, visiting the Kaziranga National Park to witness the One Horned Rhino is highly recommended because the species is highly endangered & is exclusive solely to the Indian mainland. The state also harbors the world’s largest river island which is an ideal offbeat destination for arranging leisurely picnics. The Kamakhya Temple is a must visit too.

The Lokapriya Gopinath Bordoloi Airport in Guwahati, Assam, arranges regular flights to Delhi, Bangalore, Mumbai, etc. Other airports are in Silchar & Dibrugarh. Trains like Rajdhani Express & Saraighat Express ply from Delhi & Kolkata to the Guwahati Railway Station as well. Assam is easily accessible via road through the Siliguri Corridor and the neighboring northeastern states.

This has resulted in the shaping and re-shaping of a culture that is unique on its own. The Assamese hold the Betel Nuts to great esteem, offering them to their guests as a sign of welcome & respect. They even offer the "Gamcha" to the guests, which is a white cotton towel decorated with red embroidery & motifs. They are skilled manufacturers of bamboo products & offering trays called "Xorai" which comes with decorated covers. These trays are used to offer edibles to Gods, offer "Tamul Pan" to guests, et cetera. Assamese have their distinct dance forms that are elaborately performed during the festival of Bihu.
