Around 310km northeast upriver from Guwahati, Jorhat has an airport and road connections to Kaziranga, Nagaland and northern Arunachal Pradesh. The unique Vaishnavite culture of Majuli, reputedly the world’s largest river island, and Sibsagar, former capital of the Ahoms, are both close by. Further north, Dibrugarh is opening up as a gateway to northern Nagaland and eastern Arunachal Pradesh. There is good birdwatching at Dibru-Saikhowa National Park, while Digboi has an interesting oil museum and war memorial.
