So here it is..My first Post describing the land I came from Assam,
As it is usually known as the Land of Red Hills and Blue Rivers…actually it is much more than that I believe.Not only Assam the Entire North-East India comprising of Assam,Arunachal,Meghalaya,Nagaland,Manipur,
Mizoram,Tripura and Sikkim is a delight to watch and travel.Assamese is the main Language of Assam and also is considered lingua franca of the NE India.
To start with, Assam is the only gateway to NE India with a Narrow corridor running through the foothills of The Himalaya that connects the State with West Bengal and Rest of the India.
Assam and the entire NE is generally famous for its rich Natural Heritage..With rich Flora and Fauna one finds themselves pretty close to the nature.Different Cultures,Different Traditions mixing up pretty well in NE makes a basis of wonders to others.From The Mighty Brahmaputra(Prime River in NE) to Blue Hills to Never ending Natural Heritage..Assam has all.
The main City of Assam is Guwahati formerly known as Pragjyotishpura(meaning ‘City of Eastern Lights’) located between the banks of the Brahmaputra river and the foothills of the Shillong plateau, which is also considered as Major Commercial and Educational Hub of entire NE.The city is a major center for cultural activities and sports in the North Eastern region and for the administrative and political activities of Assam. The city is an important regional hub for transportation.
Assam and its environs are rich in wildlife with several rare mammals such as Asian elephants, python, tiger and primates and even The Indian Rhinoceros.The bird-life in and around Assam is also rich and diverse.
Getting To NE India
Now here it is if Anyone is interested in Visiting NE India after reading my not pretty good Post about Assam…
NE India and Assam is very well-connected with the Rest of India By Rail,Road and Airways.The main Transport Hub is of course Guwahati. Best Time to visit Assam is between April to October as these months offer a mild and moderate climate with pleasant and sunny days and cool nights.
