Wild Orchids and Jungles


KOLKATA – GUWAHATI – SHILLONG – KAZIRANGA – JORHAT - KOLKATA


Introduction
Sharing boundaries with the other six North Eastern states is Assam, the largest of them all, where the Ahom dynasty arrived in 1228 from North Thailand, defeated the Kamrupa ruler and established a kingdom, called Assam. Legend says Kamadeva, the god of love, was reborn here. Guwahati (Eastern City of Lights) is the capital. Assam covers the plain of the Brahmaputra River along its whole course south of Arunachal Pradesh and the kingdom of Bhutan, till it turns south into Bangladesh. Since the days of the Chinese traveler Hiuen Tsang Assam has drawn travellers with her aura of myth and mystery, history and folklore, arts, textiles, music and dances, nature and wildlife. The Tawang Monastery, focal point of the Monpas,  a simple, gentle and courteous tribe who follow Buddhism, is one of the highlights of the tour.  

Meghalaya, another of the North Eastern states, literally means the ‘abode of the clouds’. Shillong, the capital, is surrounded by many tribal villages including those of the Garo, Khasi and Jaintia tribes, all of whom had  their own little kingdoms until the British annexed them. Rolling hills, and lush greenery make the region a naturalists’ paradise. Especially exotic are the orchids and other brilliant flowers.


Jewels of Information
Kamadeva , the god of love from whom Assam derived the name Kamarupa is fair and handsome. In fact he is supposed to be the best looking amongst all the gods. His vehicle is the parrot, from whose back he unleashes his arrows of desire. Legend says Assam is where Kamadeva was reborn.
