Assam is a multi-faceted state. Dominating the remote North-East of India with its sheer size and population, this region is home to a large variety of flora and fauna. Every year thousands of wildlife enthusiasts, conservationists and naturalist converge here to re-discover their tryst with nature. It has a wealth of rarest and highly endangered species of wildlife including Pygmy Hog, Golden Langur, Clouded Leopard, Hoolock Gibbon, White-Winged Woodduck, Tiger, Hispid Hare, Swamp Deer etc. and of course the Tiger and the unmistakable one-horned Indian Rhino. The state is home to many national parks – Manas, Nameri and Kaziranga to name a few and that’s where our wildlife experience is going to be focused on. However, beyond the wild is the beautiful island of Majuli on Brahmaputra, Sibasagar - ancient capital of Ahom the erstwhile rulers of Assam, ancient Kamakhya temple and more.
Each species is a masterpiece, a creation assembled with extreme care and genius.Edward O. Wilson

The Wild Assam experience is going to explore the Wildlife Triangle : Manas National Park, Nameri National Park and Kaziranga National Park. While the three national parks are similar, yet they are different in terms of wildlife and the natural ecosystem.
However, don’t stop just at the National Parks. Visit Majuli. Tucked in the mighty Brahmaputra, Majuli is the world’s largest river island. Majuli is known the world over in academic circles for the Satras (monastery), which have preserved the Vaishnavite culture. The crops are sowed and they blossom. The people staying here know how to swim and row a boat even before they walk and talk. The island’s beauty is its changing colours.
If you have made that trip to Majuli, then do try to visit Sibsagar. It was the capital of the Ahom who Ruled Assam for Six hundred years. The town is a Major Tourist attraction for the Historical Monuments. It is interesting to note that all the temples as well as the Palaces during the Ahom rules bears testimony to the use of locally available building materials like Bora Chaul (a sticky variety of rice grain) yolk of duck egg, black lentils and others. The grains can still be found in its original form even after hundreds of years of its construction.
And back in Guwahati, take a sunset or evening boat cruise on the mighty Brahmaputra. Visit the ancient Kamakhya temple. The origin of Kamakhya is Pre-Aryan. Situated atop the Nilachal hill the foremost shrine of Assam. Kamakhya is an ancient seat of Tantric and Shakti cults of Hinduism. The original temple was destroyed by the invading Muslims in their crusade against Hindu temples and idols in the early part of 16th century. Ultimately it was restored from ruins by King Naranarayan of the Koches and rebuilt in its present form in 1565 AD.
