A bit about Assam…

Assam is the central state and the largest and most accessible of the seven states in the North-East region of India.  Its capital is Dispur, located within the municipal area of Guwahati city which is the gateway to the state and the rest of the seven states. Guwahati is not only the most important city in the state but also one of the 100 fastest growing cities in the world.

Assam is best known for its tea. Around 60% of India’s tea is grown here.
