Wisely as it says "hills are alive". Hills are part of life. It store and harness water, allow it to flow in the form of river, give a beauty, provide height to waterfall, and accommodate all the floras and faunas of the habitat. Karbi Anglong is one of the only two hill districts of Assam. The hills of Karbi Anglong is providing life to the surrounding areas but the beauty of existence is unknown to most of us. West Karbi Anglong district is created by bifurcating the existing district of Karbi Anglong.
