About Dhemaji

Dhemaji is the headquarters of Dhemaji district, Assam, India. It is one of the remotest districts of Assam. From the State Capital (Guwahati), it takes about 10 hours by road to reach Dhemaji. Dhemaji is a very flood-prone district. But, due to the constant effort of the government the transport system that was nothing but an eye-sore to the people has been considerably improvised. It is situated in the foothills of Eastern Himalayas and also very high-risk zone as regards seismicity. Dhemaji was once famous for fish of various varieties. It was also a good source of milk. Still many varieties of fish are found in the rivers and rivulets in the region. It has some very good spots of natural beauty and richness but most of them are yet to be unveiled by the outsiders
