Guwahati’s untainted natural beauty mingles with age-old culture into a cauldron of surprises. Situated on the right side of the Himalayan mountain range, on the banks of the Brahmaputra river, this remote eastern city welcomes you with picturesque hills that almost appear painted in shades of greens and browns. The clear water of the river snakes alongside the centre of the city, with hilly landscapes in the horizon. A thriving flora flourishes on its muddy shore, adjacent to concrete roads that see an unexpected amount of traffic for a city that sprawls only 216 sq km.
