Well known for its tea and silk, Assam is one of the largest of India’s northeast states. Assam tour packages are offered by several travel companies and vary in length from a few nights to over two weeks. Most of them offer the opportunity to experience some of the wildlife that the area is famous for, including the endangered one horn rhino. The trip duration is an important factor when choosing a package to this beautiful area; other considerations include the size of the group, how comfortable the accommodation is, and of course the overall cost. And there is plenty to see in this corner of India, regardless of the package tour you choose. Highlights include a visit to a tea estate, visiting one or more National Parks, sampling the distinctive local cuisine, and exploring the 18th-century Ahom temples, dedicated to the deity Shiva.
