More on Dhemaji


Being a small district located in the foothills of Arunachal Himalayas and the bank of River Brahmaputra, Dhemaji is a beautiful place not yet explored by many people. With the tourism slowly blooming in the area, the authorities have started coming up with ways for the advancement of the place. Established by the first king of Ahom reign, Chow Chukafa, Dhemaji has come a long way from that time to be the tourist attraction it is now.

Still inhabited by some Indigenous tribes, including Mising, Khamti, Konch, Deori and Laloong, the place is a beautiful depiction of the cultural heterogeneity of the country and the religious tolerance. Most of the places to visit in the town are associated with the rulers prevalent in the area along with the tribes, which came up ith numerous practices and places which later turned to be major tourist attractions in the town.

Being a part of Assam, the food of Dhemaji district consists of traditional Assamese cuisine. Some of the local food of the area are Maasor tenga (sour fish curry), aloo pitika (potato mash), khar, murgir manxor jool (chicken curry), dal, xaak bhaji (green leaves fry), chutney, pickle and curd. After food, it is almost a habit of the people of Assam to have paan and betel nut ( tamul ) and offering it is a mark of respect.

Day 1: Start afresh on the first day of your trip and book up a taxi to travel down to Gerukamukh, which is located at a distance of 44 km from Dhemaji. If time permits, utilise the day to even pay a visit to Malini Than, known for the worship of the local goddess Malini.

Holidify's Opinion

  What's Great?

With proximity to important cities like Guwahati and Dibrugarh, the place provides some comfortable and pocket-friendly travel option to the tourists. Also, with a lesser population, Dhemaji might be a nice pick away from the hustle-bustle of the regular tourist destinations.

  What's not so Great?

The monsoon in the region is mostly erratic in nature and is thus not a preferred time to visit as it may trigger landslides and can cause severe accidents. Located at the base of Himalayas, the place can get cold during winter nights, thus rendering a bit of difficulty for the tourists.

For Whom

People looking forward to visiting the lesser discovered area of Northeastern India are the ones who will enjoy their visit down to Dhemaji. Couples, young people, and even families, everyone can look forward to visiting this beautiful place.
