Assam is home to many wonders, but there are certain hidden gems that are not overlooked by regular travellers. A typical Assam trip starts from Guwahati, takes you to Kaziranga, Majuli, and other such places that are prominent on the tourist map. But here we have listed some hidden destinations that you might want to check out.
Umananda Island

An inhabited river islet that is always overshadowed by the majestic Majuli, Umananda Island is a peaceful destination. The place is reputed for its natural splendour, and it is also home to a Shiva Temple called the Umananda Temple. It is home to golden langurs that is a endengared species.

Assam is certainly touched by nature’s grace, and Haflong is one of its finest specimens. A hill station in Assam, Haflong has calm lakes, and beautiful rolling hills. But the place is actually quite popular for something very strange. In the village of Jatinga here in Haflong, there locals have reported suicide of birds in certain weeks of the year.
Dibru-Saikhowa National Park

A national park in Assam, Dibru Saikhowa National Park is yet another destination that is often overlooked by the tourists. The national park has a large variety of birds, and has recorded 36 mammal species. Here you will find the largest salix swamp forest in north-east India.

Namphake :One of Dibrugarh’s finest destinations, Namphake is mainly known for a beautiful Buddhist monastery. The village is also home to the Tai Phake community. The best time to visit here is in the month of March during the Poi-Nen-Chi Festival. It is celebrated in the honour of Lord Buddha. by TRAVEL TREND
