The Green knockout

Welcome to the land of the Brahmaputra Valley, the Barak valley and the North Cachar Hills. These three things divide the Assam , or I better should say unites the Asam to fountain its neverending fragrance. A small place situated in the north east of India, Assam is synonymous with unspoiled natural beauty, teeming wildlife, immaculate tea gardens and warm, beautiful people, as stated by its tourism website. This is the place on the border of India, sharing borders with Bhutan and Bangladesh.

The state is covered with an impressive 35 % of forest area and tea cultivation worth thousands of hectares, makes it totally green in its nature. Can you believe Assam has five national parks including the World Heritage Sites of Kazirnaga and Manas, and 20 Wildlife sanctuaries? And one more thing, India’s great pride and Assam ’s most famous dwellers, one-horned rhinoceros are the host of Aasam.

Mighty bramhaputra

Originating from Chemayung-Dung glacier near Mount Kailash and the Manas Sarovar, the mighty Bramhaputra or Tsang-Po (the purifier) that’s how they call it; flow alongside the majestic Assam Valley. The river is 10 kms wide, but it is it’s narrowest, barely a kilometer wide in Guwahati. The river is having numerous islands including the world’s largest populated river island, Majuli. Here you can have thousands of adventure sports including snorkeling, diving and everything that you would love to have. The most famous one is ‘the river rafting’; tributaries like Manas, Jia Bhoreli and Kopili have some fiery rapids that make them ideal for while water rafting.

Beauty of the ‘Tea’

Everyone knows very well about the tea production in Assam . The usual day in our life starts with the plants cultivated in the Upper Brahmaputra valley. You can go and visit the parks in Aasam and let me tell you, the women cultivating tea leaves with buckets hanging on their back looks gorgeous. Research on tea cultivation is always going on in Tea Research Centre established in 1991.
