Nestled in the bosom of the great Himalayan mountains, the Brahmaputra is a 'Trans-Boundary River' that flows through China, India, and Bangladesh. Among the many towns and cities, it covers on the way, is the quaint town of Sualkuchi. Sualkuchi is situated in the Kamrup area in Assam. The lush scenery of the Sualkuchi Forest range shielding the massive breadth of the river bed is a sight to behold! The agricultural fields that stand in stark contrast also present an enchanting view. A visit in the evening to the banks of River Brahmaputra will leave you in a complete trance. The sight it offers is spellbinding with the sunset bathing the river in multiple hues of the dusk.
Apart from being well-known for the serene beauty of the Brahmaputra River, Sualkuchi is famous for its cottage industries.

In addition to the natural beauty of this place, you might also want to visit the villages here and get a taste of the local lifestyle or tap into your spiritual self at the various temples, Namghars and monasteries here.
