Assam Tour Packages by Purvi Discovery: What You Will See?

Purvi Discovery 7 Jan, 2018

Assam is one of those rare destinations on the tourist map of India which changes texture and ambiance with the change of seasons. The beauty of Assam that you will find in the main three seasons of the country, winter, summer and monsoon, are quite diverse from each other. The land of beautiful river sceneries and green mountains, coupled with thick romantic jungles full of wildlife, radiate in their unique seasonal colours. However, if you want to soak up the true spirit of Assam, you should book Assam tour packages during winter.

The ideal time to visit this state is from the month of October to March. This is when the temperature is within comfortable limits, with the maximum hovering around 25 degrees Celsius and the lower mark not breaching the limit of 8 degrees Celsius. With the sun out during the day, you don’t need heavy woollens but as a traveller from the plains, who are used to hot, dusty weather, it is wise to carry light woollens for the evening and night. Post sunset, the temperature can shoot down drastically.

The main attraction of Assam, the Kaziranga National Park, looks beautiful and mesmerizing during winter and spring time. The wildlife shows itself out to enjoy the sunlight and you can find them lurking around here and there. Birds of many rare species can be seen in winter. They are usually migratory in nature and you will not find them when you visit Assam during the summer or the monsoon.

Another attraction of booking Assam tour packages in winter is the captivating views of river cruises down the Brahmaputra. The light fog hanging over the river in the early morning accentuates its beauty in a way that cannot be described in words. River cruises will lead you to some island temples like the famous Umananda Temple. It is during winter that you can make trips to the Kaziranga National Orchid and Biodiversity Park, a site where you will find flowers unique to this region and habitat.

Winter is also the season when the Assamese celebrate their largest festival, Bihu. Other festivals like the Rongali and the Elephant Festival are also celebrated during winter. So, you don’t just get to savour the sights and sounds of the place, but also engage with it culturally. That is why visiting Assam in winter is a win-win for all.
