Gauhati Travel Guide: 26 reviews and 100 photos


The capital of the north-eastern state of assam, gauhati is one of the major city in this corner of india.
majorly a tea growing state, but it has been brought down thanks to the militancy of the ULFA. these people are fighting for their own independent state.
but when i was there, it looked quiet peacefull. people here are nice to chat with

more alcohol drinking than tea

this is the most strange thing i have noticed about assam, there are more wine shops than medical shops here. no wonder people were drinking here almost the whole day.
wierd to see this in this part of india.
another nice feature to see here is the cycle rickshaw. very easy n nice way to see

    Hi Manish, nice to see a page on Gauhati apart from mine. Please write more about the city so that I can rate. I guess you refer to Hotel Mayur in your tip. I invite you to visit my page on Gauhati.
