A place to engage with the culture of the northeast, Guwahati represents the largest city in the region, and acts as a stepping stone for wider explorations.
Discover out-of-the-way places like Nameri National Park and Hayagriva Madhava Temple. And it doesn't end there: take in the spiritual surroundings of Bhuvaneswari Temple, steep yourself in history at Kamakhya Temple, identify plant and animal life at Pobitora Wildlife Sanctuary, and stroll the grounds of Guwahati War Cemetery.
