Dillighat of Namrup - A famous picnic spot of Upper Assam.

 Dillighat of Namrup - A famous picnic spot of Upper Assam.

The Dilihghat in Namrup is a famous picnic spot in Upper Assam. Namrup is a small town situated close to the foothills of the great Patkai Mountain Range(Purvanchal Range connecting to Myanmar) in the extreme southeastern part of Assam, India.

The river Dilih or Disang flows through it. During the winter and mostly during the New Year's Day Dilihghat becomes a busy picnic spot. Clean water, river-bed rocks, green canopy of forests and tea gardens are the major attractions of Dilihghat.

Dilighat is situated on the banks of river dilhi or disang (a tributary of mighty Luit or Brahmaputra) in Namrup and Borhat (a place adjoining to Namrup in Sivasagar District).

I have visited Namrup many times. For few years it was like my second home. Recently I visited Namrup on 21st January 2018 on my way to Lakwa in Sivasagar District through the Dhodar Ali.
