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.
Kids will appreciate attractions like Deepor Beel Birds Sanctuary and Pobitora Wildlife Sanctuary. Step out of the city life by going to Assam State Zoo Cum Botanical Garden and Brahmaputra River. There's much more to do: make a splash at Accoland, take in the views from Saraighat Bridge, take in the spiritual surroundings of ISKCON Guwahati, and admire all the interesting features of Regional Science Center.

To see reviews, where to stay, and more tourist information, refer to the Guwahati trip itinerary maker website .
