Abstract: Tourism in common is referred to the movement of people outside their residence and visiting places beyond geographical boundaries of a country. It is considered as one of the largest industries in terms of foreign exchange earnings and employment generation. It is also an effective tool for bridging different cultures and communal conflicts. Many countries have embraced tourism as it serves the purpose of solving various economic and socio-cultural developments. The study area under Karbi Anglong Autonomous Council districts of Assam, India have been blessed by nature with bountiful natural beauty, rare flora and fauna, ethnic culture, heritage, unique cuisine, customs, fairs & festivals, mesmerizing waterfalls and appealing hills. Major part of the tourism resources available in the districts have not been tapped, remained untouched and undiscovered so far. The study area has the potential to be one of the major tourism hubs in Assam as well as North-East India. In the present context, this paper tried to examine and highlight the various tourism potentials and resources available in the study area which has remained undiscovered and unexplored till date.
