The Coal Queen of Assam – Margherita, the State of Assam, Incredible India!

The tinsel town of Margherita is situated on the banks of the River Dehing, a tributary of the mighty Brahmaputra and is bordered by the evergreen mystique Patkai Range towards the eastern side. Since time immemorial this region is inhabited by both tribal and non tribal community living harmoniously with their unique cultural and traditional values.

The warm hospitality of the people and their mouth watering ethnic delicacies always offer a warm welcome to an outsider. The awesome landscape of this area painted with the lush green tea gardens along the road, the hillocks, the bountiful flora and fauna, the dark green forests, the streams, enchanting blue hills, flowing rivers, the mysterious clouds that bring rain to the valley, the rich bouquet of arts and cultures of the different community will never fail to beckon tourists to this beautiful area throughout the year. This valley has resources immersed in it that can enthrall an Ecotourist. It’s a futile attempt to narrate the beauty of Margherita in short because Margherita is a nature’s Paradise and one can certainly cherish the beauty of God’s creation in this heavenly abode.
