Frontier Land, Assam and Beyond
Enter this fascinating frontier land, part of the Seven Sister States located at the far north eastern reaches of India. Assam is arguably one of the most remote and picturesque states in India. Low lying verdant valleys give way to the mighty Brahmaputra river below, and the misty blue mountains above. Famed for its tea towns, wild grass jungles, temples, and the lesser known old colonial settlements Assam is well worth the effort.
The capital Guwahati on the banks of the Brahmaputra, sits at the foot of the Shillong plateau, here you will find a few of India’s most important temples. On to Shillong, the pretty little Raj hill station with its manicured gardens and colonial heritage, before visiting Cherrapunjee where you will find the unique natural root bridges, that cover the area along with dramatic mountain vistas along the way. The tour ends with visits to the birders paradise of Nameri National Park and the world famous Kaziranga National Park with its native one-horned rhinos.
