Assam is known for its gorgeous valleys and hills, river tracts and jungles. It can easily attract almost anybody who selects Assam to explore this ancient land. In spite of such endowments, the tourism possibilities of this state it yet to be adequately channelized.
In the last couple of years, however, the government has adoped several appreciable efforts to draw tourists to ‘Awesome Assam’. Such efforts are yet to satisfactorily include the sights of Barak Valley and hill districts. Both regions have substantial historical and religious sights, charming hill ranges, caves networks, expansive lakes and magnificent cascades
For example, Barak Valley, has the Shon Beel, which is Asia’s second largest seasonal wetland. It draws sundry fishes, migratory birds and the green forests make it a gripping sight. Also, the place has plenty of religious spots like Panch Phir Mukkam and Kancha Kanti Kali Temple. The latter was erected 200 years ago following a dream of the then Kachari king.
The hill districts have plenty of jungles with exotic wildlife. Along with this, Haflong with its narrow alleys and terraced cityscape is perhaps North east India’s one of the most beautiful hill stations. Improving the tourist infrastructure of the town could help it become a major summer destination for visitors who otherwise flock to Shillong.
