Summer Vacation in NorthEast India - Part 16 (Eastern Railway trip)

All good so far, we reached the last day of our trip in NE, the Train scheduled to start at 12:45 and we were prompt to board into the train. The entire journey to cover 1024kms in train, and this is going to have good amount of day train trip in the very comfortable climate, what else one need to enjoy the window seat.

The trip was excellent, right from Guwahati to New Jalpaiguri and little above distance we had sun light and enjoyed all the sceneries en-route.

The major attraction to me on the train journey was the fishing nets used by villages on the sides of rail track. The technology the followed had a similarity to the larger Chinese fishing nets used in Fort Kochi.

Most of the places in Assam was flood surrounded due to the recent rains, can see many places the corps were submerged in water.

Life in village were badly affected least to mention.

As always we had a good time in the train journey and kids were happy too.
