We are a boutique tour operating company, based in the Camellia town of Dibrugarh, Assam. The name Camellia is from the flower of the tea plant species. It all began in 2000 with the idea of promoting 'tea tourism' in Upper Assam. Since then we have graduated to covering the entire north-eastern region of the country, with our prime focus on Assam. All our tours are tailor made to suit the requirements of our guests and we are dedicated to provide to them a unique destination experience, while ensuring that they return home with a sense of belonging to the place and kinship with the people of the areas visited by them. We are pioneers in converting our tea plantation bungalows, which are boutique properties with 03-04 rooms, as places for guests to stay while they are in Dibrugarh and Tinsukia (www.purvidiscovery.com/hotels).
As a company, we strongly believe in responsible tourism and have always kept in mind the importance of meaningful community participation, engagement and giving back. Our guests can visit local communities, engage with local people, enjoy local cuisines and experience different lifestyles, traditions, cultures and contexts. Moreover, during their stay in one of our tea-plantations in Assam, our guests can also chose to volunteer for and spend time with the children of a tea plantation primary school. We believe that a few hours a day of reading together, singing songs, dancing and playing sports with people from around the globe, can add immense value and open windows to the world for our children in the plantations, who are otherwise cut off from the rest of the world and are limited by deprivation and marginalisation.
