Our itineraries are devised to take you to many interesting destinations including the following:

DIBRU-SAIKHOWA NATIONAL PARK: Described as one of the most fascinating Bio diversity hot spots in India, it is unique in many ways. The area is comprised of many islets in the confluence of the River Brahmaputra and its tributary, the Dibru. It has semi-evergreen, deciduous, swamp and patches of wet evergreen forests. There are sizable patches of grasslands and some rare orchids. Bird life is awesome,  with woodland, grassland and aquatic birds. The White Winged Wood Duck, which was believed to be extinct, was re-discovered here. The presence of feral horses adds to its uniqueness.

DIBRUGARH: The tea-town in Upper Assam with tea estates and colonial bungalows is a base from where one can travel to other areas in eastern Assam like the oil town of Digboi, coalfields in Margherita and also to tribal villages.       

SIBSAGAR: The former capital of the Ahom kings that ruled Assam for 600 years, have left behind monuments and temples built by them which is an amalgam of Indian and South-East Asian architecture. There are large hand-excavated tanks besides temples believed to be the largest such reservoirs.

JORHAT: Another tea center of Assam. Close to it is the Gibbon wild life sanctuary with 7 of the primates found here along with the Giant Squirrel, Hoolock Gibbon and a rich bird life.                              

MAJULI ISLAND: The largest river island has unique Hindu Vaishnavite monasteries with their very interesting dance-dramas enacted by the resident monks. Rural landscape, pristine environment, tribal villages are the other features of Majuli.

KAZIRANGA NATIONAL PARK: 20th Century’s Greatest Conservation Success Story (1905-2005) was scripted in Kaziranga. From a mere dozen rhinos to 1600 in a century of conservation efforts made this success possible. Now, the number stands at more than 2000. Apart from the rhino, tiger, wild buffalo, deer, elephant and 450 species of birds make Kaziranga the favourite for the wild life enthusiast. Kaziranga  is also a World Heritage Site.     

ORANG AND NAMERI NATIONAL PARK: Orang is right on the river on its northern shores. Little visited, this small park still gives the visitor a sense of wilderness. There are tigers, rhinos and deer and also interesting bird life. Nameri is a short drive from the town of Tezpur. Crossing the swiftly flowing Jia Bhorelli river, one needs to trek in its forest trails. Rafting is another option in the Jia Bhorelli.

GUWAHATI: The capital city of Assam and gateway to the northeastern states, Guwahati has the important Hindu tantric temple of Kamakhya. The poignant World War II cemetery, set in quiet and serene surroundings, draws people willing to pay tributes to the fallen war heroes. There is the State Museum and various emporia nearby that sell handicrafts and handloom of the region.       

SUALKUCHI: A little downstream of Guwahati, this village has a thriving silk weaving cottage industry. Almost every household has a loom and one can hear the rhythmic sound of the looms as one walks by. The complere process – from silk worm to finished products – can be seen here.   

HAJO: is said to be the meeting ground of Hindus, Muslims and Buddhists with a Hindu temple standing on what was once believed to be a Buddhist stupa and a Muslim Dargah on a nearby hillock. All the three religion thrived here without animosity for centuries.

MANAS NATIONAL PARK: Located on the foothills of the Bhutan Himalayas, it was described by one British botanist as the most beautiful wild life park in India. The Manas river flowing past adds beauty to the landscape where the tiger, elephant, the Indian bison have made their home. The rare Bengal Florican is spotted here and is also a habitat for the great India Hornbill.
