Assam is the tale of a river that romances with the lands, the living and the lore. The River Brahmaputra carves itself through expansive grasslands and rice paddy fields and contains an array of remarkable river islands. Home to one-horned rhinoceros, many mammals and birds, the state takes you through the stories of successful conservation. But diversity is not just limited to nature and wildlife here. A land that has always been welcoming and open to novelty; Assam’s culture fashions out of many unique traditions that paved into its ethos with the passing of time. While you start your trip with the magnum opus of Kolkata city, you slowly slide away into the simple, unhurried cultural landscapes of Assam. Welcome to the land of lahe, lahe – meaning slowly, slowly. In Assam, it is an attitude, a collective feeling, a way of life.

India is a study in contrasts; a historical backdrop for a modern-day industrial narrative, a traditional outlook co-existing with fresh, global lifestyles, an ensemble of ethnic disparities creating a cohesive, cultural identity. India is a sensory potpourri; of colourful, exuberant scenes and folks, of tangible, delectable cuisines and flavours, of dialects and tongues exchanged like currency and the ebb and flow of a billion people working through their daily routines.
