Assam is a land of many unique festivals with Bihu being the most important.
Although Bihu is the main festival of Assam, the people here celebrate a lot of other festivals with great enthusiasm. Three different types of Bihus are celebrated here – Magh Bihu in mid-January, Rongali/Bohag Bihu in mid-April, and Kaati Bihu in the month of October. The last three days of Durga Puja or Navratri are also celebrated with great gusto here.
When to visit: Although each of the Bihus is celebrated here with great enthusiasm, Rongali Bihu is a must-visit, owing to the various kinds of food prepared for the festival. The Bihu dance performed at this time in every household or locality is definitely worth a watch, too.
