It’s a bit of a shame that we don’t get to read an awful lot about Assam. Just leaves us with a question- why isn’t Assam written a great deal about the same one gets to hear about Delhi, Mumbai, Bengaluru, Chennai and other parts of the country?
If one thought about it, here’s what strikes most about Assam. Apart from being a pleasant land, wrapped in peace and greens, there are not just the amazing tea gardens in Assam that put it as being a land gifted with plenty. Assam is revered a lot for its bountiful wildlife. Wrapped in vast forest cover, Assam’s a rare combination of arresting flora and fauna. There’s so much to savour in this land of simplicity.
Perhaps it would make for a fitting picture postcard to capture the image of a beautiful couple, sitting on top of a resort submerged by green pastures and flowing wind with a cup of Assamese tea in hand.
So which are 4 of the most sought-after Wildlife resorts in the eastern state?
