21 PHOTOS THAT WILL INSPIRE YOU TO VISIT AWESOME ASSAM!

Assam really is an awesome state to visit in North East India. Not only does it provide India’s biggest tea export; it’s boasts the largest river island in the world, has 70% of the planets one horned rhino population and it also has the highest bio diversity regions on Earth¬†too – not bad for a single state in India!

As you travel around this diverse state, you’ll find culture everywhere. From the traditional temples of Guwahati to Shiv Sagar, the tea plantations in Tezpur and the wildlife of Kaziranga and Majuli Island. It really has it all and provides an amazing Assamese adventure.

I really wanted to showcase some of its beauty and thought that there is nothing better than a photo essay to do it.

WARNING: May cause serious wanderlust and I am not liable for you booking your ticket to Assam! ūüėČ
