1. Horse-riding tours: Private operators organize horse ride through tea gardens or exhilarating sandy gallop on the banks of river Brahmaputra in eastern Assam districts of Dibrugarh and Tinsukia.  One can also go for prolonged trail rides through forest reserves in the area. 


2. Mountain biking: The hilly terrain offers a very good challenge to mountains bikers.  Exploring Assam and adjoining states in the Northeast often take riders to pristine rural settings and villages of ethnic communities.  A major part of these tours are off-road and through hills and plains. 

3. Parasailing: Parasailing can be done at Dalibari in North Guwahati.  The sandbars at Guwahati (during the annual Brahmaputra Beach Festival) and near Dibru-Saikhowa National Park in eastern Assam are perfect spots too.  Private tour operators organize parasailing at Dibru-Saikhowa.

4. Hang gliding: Nilachal (Kamakhya) Hill in Guwahati Guwahati and hills around Kaziranga are ideal for hang gliding.


5. Boat racing: Speed fests similar to snake-boat racing in Kerala have traditionally been organized during festivals in Guwahati, Hajo, Suallkuchi and Barpeta.  For kayaking and canoeing enthusiasts, one can head straight to Charanbeel in Morigaon district, barely an hour's drive from Guwahati.  The Assam Boat Racing and Rowing Association, together with the Department of Tourism, also organizes boat racing during the annual spring-time Brahmaputra Beach Festival. 


6. River Rafting: The Brahmaputra and its turbulent tributaries such as Manas and Kopili dare adventurers with their swift current and fiery rapids.  But rafting is most organized at Jia Bhoroli, also a Brahmaputra tributary.

7. Angling: Rivers Jia-Bhoreli (Nameri National Park), Kopili (Central Assam) and Manas (Manas National Park) are the haunts of anglers for fierce game fish, especially golden mahseer.  The most popular annual event is organized by Assam Bhoreli Anglers Association at Nameri in November or December
