The beauty and simplicity of the region is reflected in the unity in diversity of the people and the warm and affectionate disposition which finds expression in exquisite pieces of handicraft made of bamboo and canewood as well as handloom made from Muga Silk. It is a travellers’ paradise-a utopia of sorts,as much as for the bag-packing trekker as the consummate vacationer.This paradise on earth truly remains a rare gem nestled in the lap of nature.
