"Cultural capital of Assam"

  • 5.0/7
  • Posted May 20, 2016
Jorhat is a major city of Assam. The city has a lot of sight scenes around it. Kaziranga National Park is just nearly 112 km. Via NH 37 from Jorhat. We visited Hoollongapar Gibbon Wildlife Sanctuary, one of the best sight scenes of Jorhat city during our trip to Kaziranga. Majuli, the largest freshwater river island in the world is just nearly 20 km. From Jorhat one can found urban facilities like ATM, hotels, restaurants, cyber cafes, shopping malls, universities in Jorhat. It has a airport and the nearest railhead is Jorhat railway station.

"Nice city"

  • 5.0/7
  • Posted Jan 19, 2016
This place is my native place and I don't need to explain about. I love being at Jorhat, though the new markets are yet to come but still we are provided here with all sorts of things. It is in the upper Assam filled with nature. The famous Kaziranga National Park is in Jorhat.

"MD's Continental, Jorhat"

  • 6.0/7
  • Posted Dec 3, 2012
Jorhat is a district HQ and sorrounded by lot of sight seeing places. the place is filled with tea plantations. city looks like old and not fully developed.

Food, sight-seeing and shopping: You will have lot of varieties in fish there. Only River Island in the world is in Jorhat. about 20 Kms from Jorhat. it's must watch place. then u have Kaziranga national park. you can have elephant rides there.
shopping is costly affair.

Activities & things to do: Travelling, sight seeing & holidaying. visit national parks, tea plantations

Travel tips, How to reach, travel warnings etc: Reach Jorhat by flights from Kolkata & Guwahati. Taxis available at high prices. airport is 8 Km away from city and they charge -300-400/- for airport drop. there are no evening flights from jorhat. take sufficient cushion time between flights.

"Mou Chapori"

  • 6.0/7
  • Posted Aug 25, 2008
Mou Chapori is a nice place at Neematighat, Jorhat. Its a small river island (on might Brahmaputra) and an ideal place for family outings. Cottages are pretty decent and available at affordable prices. The sunrise and sunset view over the river Brahmaputra is amazing. It has a wonderful children's park.

Food, sight-seeing and shopping: Wonderful

Activities & things to do: No activities

Travel tips, How to reach, travel warnings etc: Located on the banks of Brahmaputra , its about 13 kms from Jorhat. Regular Buses are available to Neematighat. From there, the boats takes you to the island and gets back too. Its a safe place for family. Suggest to visit during winters only.
