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.
Get ready for this Four Days Offbeat Assam Camping Trip – 65 km from Guwahati, Assam – where you’ll get to prepare traditional Rabha Vodka, taste the freshly brewed liquor, meet the indigenous Pati Rabha tribe, see the traditional cloth weaving process, visit Chandubi Lake, sway on the beats of Bogejari Folk Dance. (Girls specifically dance on the Bogejari beats. If the group includes girls, they will get ready and dance to the beats.) We will savour local cuisine – twisted with flavours, all desi style. All dishes are traditionally cooked from local fish, country chicken, and herbs.
Note: Vegetarians, don’t worry; we have many exciting options on the platter.
We will visit six Offbeat Places in Assam: Chandubi, Tukubari, Kothal Guri, Baroigoan, Ranikhamar, Langkhar. We will go hiking, cover about 10+ km of trekking and camping through the jungle, visit Soloka Dare waterfalls, and spend some time Angling in the Kulsi River.
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.
We did this Lower Assam Exploration trip as a part of our Offbeat Exploration in the Northeast; since then, it has lived in our hearts. When we posted about this on our social media, it went viral, and we received multiple queries from people who wanted to do this. And so, we present to you – the Chandubi Two-Day Trip. Read the complete itinerary of the two-day Chandubi trip and book your tickets at the earliest.
Note: Without Travel, people must take care of their entire day's travel. We will begin our day directly in Chandubi. The location will be shared with you in an email.

We will receive you in Guwahati at around 8 a.m. Have your breakfast beforehand. This tour is set in an offbeat location and food places are not available easily. We will directly have our lunch at a tribals' home at around 1 pm. The timings and vehicle details will be confirmed to you in a separate email.
The day will start with registration in Chandubi and a group photo. We will get to know each other over cups of tea, and after the introductory session, our guide will give a brief about the trip.
We will give a rocking start to the trip with an Adivasi Dance Performance. Later as we are tired and hungry, we will settle for a scrumptious ethnic meal. This meal will consist of 10+ varieties of dishes, including staple rice.
At around 3.30 pm, we will pitch our tents, relax for some time, and then go for Pati Rabha Village Walk. In this walk, know all about the life of the Pati Rabha tribe and their contribution to the economy, and how their day revolves around work and life. Ask as many questions as you like, and for translations or any other detail, turn to your guide for help.
Later in the evening, we will prepare ourselves for a folk treat with Bogejari Dance. Women are especially invited to do this as this is performed only by women. You will be dressed and provided with basic makeup to prepare for a dancing session.
Later, we will have dinner. Several conversations later, under the offbeat stars, we will go to take rest at around 10 pm.

Day 2 is on the sequence. We will start our day with a freshening up and nutritious breakfast. At 9 am, we will get into the forest and go through a trail abundant with natural resources.
We will stop for Lunch at 1 pm. Later, we will stop for a Forest Healing Session, where our guide will familiarise you with nature's magic.
Continuing our journey, we will reach our camp in Tukubari Village by 4 p.m. After pitching tents and snacks, we will set in for a history and story session at 7 pm.
Later, after dinner and a chit-chatting session, we will depart for much-deserved rest.

Then at 3 pm, we will drive to Ranikhamar Village for Angling in the Kulsi River.
At 5 pm, we will take a boat to Kafai Tamrong Homestay in the Langkhar Village for a night stay.
You will have some time to freshen up before we go for a village walk here.
6.30 pm on day 3 is most awaited by our trekkers. They love the process of learning vodka-making from scratch. Whether you drink or not is secondary; knowing things around you is important. These tribals have been brewing vodka for ages, and getting to know about the process will increase your excitement.
This is the second last day, so we will treat you to a campfire session and live acoustic performances.
Later, after tea, snacks and traditional Pati Rabha dinner, we will relax in our tents.
Stay Not Applicable
Today is the worst day of our trip. Not in terms of activities, but since this is the last day. We know while leaving, a few tears might drip, but a satisfactory feeling of a successful trip will surely take home.
After breakfast, we will go for a Waterfall Hike (only if more than 50% of the people from the group want to do it).
Later, we will drive back to Chandubi Boating Yard. Here we can have our lunch. 100s of awesome photos thereon, we will bid each other goodbye.
We will drop you back in Guwahati, where you can continue your journey.
Lingering memories and sweet pain in your body from the trek will keep you hooked on the four days Assam trip for a few days. If memories start blurring, just take out your phone and scroll through the pictures. Don't hesitate to call us and your buddies if you have anything to say. And once you know you want to do it again, we are here. Check out our other itineraries and ring us soon. It would be a pleasure to host you again. Till then, love and live life.
If you have less time, we have one-day and two-day trips to this offbeat place. Check them out here.

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.
