About Assam

Assam is the first state you encounter when you travel to the North East sector of India and is virtually the gateway to the entire region. Rich in natural resources, abundant wild life some of which unfortunately stand listed as endangered species, Assam also nurtures an incredible variety of vegetation and is famous for its aromatic tea. Besides vast rolling plains thick verdant forests clinging to blue hills, silvery streams and cascading waterfalls, the most conspicuous feature of the state is the expansive Brahmaputra River that runs the entire length of this picturesque state. Originating from the mountains of Tibet the river at certain stretches appears like a vast inland sea and is the widest river in Asia . No wonder than that it derives its name from the Sanskrit word "Asom" meaning peerless.

A land locked state, situated between 90-96º longitude east and 24-28º north latitude, Assam is bordered by Nagaland, Meghalaya, Mizoram, Manipur, and Tripura to the south, by Arunachal Pradesh and Bhutan to the north; West Bengal and Bangladesh to the west, and Nagaland to the south east. The people here are a mixed lot tracing their ancestry to Aryan, Non Aryan and Mongoloid stock. The population is mainly Hindu while Buddhists and other minorities including tribes also make up a sizeable segment.

Assam is home to three of the country's richest National Parks - Kaziranga, Manas, and Orang which sustain a wealth of bio-diversity. Here the one horned Rhino thrives along with the Great Indian Bison besides an incredible variety of other species.

Blessed with such a wealth of natural beauty and fertile land, Assam remains today one of the most desired destinations in the northeast. Besides it makes an ideal stopover on your way to the other 7 states in the region more fondly known as the seven sisters.
