Looking to explore an offbeat part of Assam near Guwahati? Come to Chandubi.
Switching enigmatic landscapes, natural grandeur, snaky roads and vast grassland just 65 km from Guwahati will make you question how something so astonishing can exist in a city's vicinity. Many people who live in Guwahati don’t know about the serenity of this place. It is where tourists take a backseat, and the area divulges one wonder at a time. If there were five words to describe this place, those would be Economical, Less time-taking, Serene, Close to nature and Authentic.
Ladies and gentlemen, it’s time to learn the traditional Vodka Making Process, prepare and taste Vodka, meet the indigenous Pati Rabha tribals, see the traditional cloth weaving process, visit Chandubi Lake, learn the Bamboo Jewellery Making Process, sway on the beats of the Bogejari Folk Dance.
We will savour local cuisine with 7+ dishes – twisted with flavours, all desi style. All dishes are traditionally cooked from local fish, country chicken, and herbs. Apart from meeting the tribals, we will take the Chandubi Village Walk and go to Chandubi Lake for a boating session. The lake is one of the nine lakes in Assam and is located at the foot of Garo Hills, formed in the 17th century after a massive earthquake watered by the Kulsi River. Listen to all the mystical stories about how this lake was christened.

What’s life without adventure? Isn’t the real purpose of life to travel, to experience new places, and witness the sunrise from new mountaintops? This thought is what united Jatin and Tarun over a cup of chai, in spite of being from two unrelated backgrounds (CA and IT). They knew each other since the time Jatin was helping Tarun learn the ways of the wilderness through weekend treks and outings with another traveling group. Their love for traveling and trekking together motivated them to start something of their own. Thus was born “Plan The Unplanned”, where travel goals come true. Under the Companies Act, Plan The Unplanned is incorporated as Unplanned Journeys Private Limited They started their journey on unsteady ground, much like any other company, but they shared an infatuation for travel and adventure with their customers, which amplified their determination, and thus, Plan the Unplanned family keeps getting bigger every day! Just about any travel idea can come alive with Plan The Unplanned…treks, adventure activities like rock climbing, kayaking, rafting, backpacking trips across the country, cultural outings, photo walks; everything that fellow travelers need, to explore the great outdoors together.
