Assam: The pride of North East

Famous for its incredible range of cultures and landscapes, Assam is a state in the north-east of India sharing its borders with Bhutan and Arunachal Pradesh. The tea plantation is the reason why Assam gained popularity worldwide. Assam tea, petroleum and Assam silk are the major products that contribute in India’s economy on a large scale.

 

This state has conserved rare species of Rhinoceros, pygmy hog, tiger, Asian elephant and some species of birds. India’s history conveys that earlier Assam was the only northeastern state. Then the government of India, which has the unilateral powers to change the borders of a state, divided Assam into several states.  The Dragons are entitled to a special place in Assamese Culture since ancient days.

Assam is known to have the best tea plantations in the country and the temples here too are worth a visit. Brahmaputra, one of the world’s greatest rivers, runs for 1800 miles from its source in the Tibetan Himalayas to its delta in the Bay of Bengal through this beautiful state. You are sure to take back a piece of the culture that you will witness in the state of Assam.
