  • Beautiful and cool place.you have to go up and down to see the temple.finally you will be relaxed by hearing the water sound of the river
  • The surrounding is awesome As far as spiritual part is concerned. .its a place people may find it very uplifting... The basistha river is clean. The best part there is no hue and cry of the pandas and so called sadhus .. One word of caution. .don't carry food items uncovered as it may result in monkey attacks
  • Breathtaking and lovely place, mythological link with Basistha muni meditation temple , all around full of beautiful natural scenery with hills and lovely sound of water flowing, beware of monkeys.....from Guwahati railway station direct bus service and cabs ola or uber avlbl , small food stalls are there , , half day tour.....
  • I love this place because it has beautiful scenery and cool water
  • Beautiful, seren place on top of a small hill. Mostly the cold water flowing as a brook attacts the visitors.

Where to stay in Guwahati

Most accommodations in Guwahati lie close to the main train station in the Paltan Bazaar district. Here, you'll find some particularly refined options next to the river in the Fancy Bazaar area, offering extensive views of the water and access to some of the main sights in town. Look to the mazy side streets of the Paltan Bazaar district for some budget-friendly guesthouses and hostels. The main Guwahati-Shillong Road has a good choice of hotels, with some budget and luxury options available. The road offers a degree of convenience for those who want to get out and explore the hillier areas of the region.
