Assam’s powerful rivers provide exciting options for adventure sports, especially boating and boat races. In fact, boat racing is a very popular sport in Assam. People very often organise boat races during festive occasions at places such as Hajo, Sualkuchi, Barpeta, and Guwahati, among others. Boat racing is an intrinsic part of the tradition and culture for people living along the Brahmaputra river valley. Apart from the Brahmaputra, these races are also organised at Dighalipukhuri of Guwahati, Chandubi Lake and Umrangshu Lake of Karbi Anglong. These boat races have now become an intrinsic part of the life of the locals, and are a great tourist attraction in Assam.
