Assam

Discover iconic Assam

Assam is the largest of India’s seven northeastern states. It occupies the floodplains and middle reaches of the Brahmautra River. A spectacular region, Assam is famous for its sprawling tea plantations, spectacular wilderness areas and the oldest working oilfield in the world, which was first tapped in 1901 at Digboi.

The region has been hailed as one of the richest biodiversity zones in the world. Its pristine wild places, most notably the two UNESCO World Heritage Sites of Kaziranga National Park and the Manas Natinoal Park, shelter the endangered one-horned rhino, Asiatic elephant, Bengal tiger, gaur and many other fascinating species.
