About Karbi Anglong, Assam, India

Karbi Anglong is a district in the Assam state in India. Karbi Anglong is the largest district in Assam by area, and is located in the interior of the state. It is bordered to the northwest by Nagaon, to the northeast by Golaghat, and has a small border at the very south with Dima Hasao.

Atypical for Assam, which mostly consists of lowlands, Karbi Anglong is hilly and consists mostly of upland areas, although it has some small areas with plains as well. It is quite humid, with numerous streams. The highest peak in the district is about 4460feet (1360m), although most of the district is at a much lower elevation. Well over half of the district is forested, including both deciduous forests and semi-evergreen forests, and both dense and semi-open forests, but the district also faces problems with forest loss and soil degradation due primarily to slash-and-burn agriculture. A substantial portion of the forest is protected under state or local oversight, and the district contains a number of protected wildlife refuges.

Banaspaty estate, which produces organic teas, is located in the Karbi Anglong district. Ramanugger estate is also located here.

Purple tea, which has become popular in Kenya, may have originated in this region; although Kenya developed the purple-leafed tea cultivars, the clone used to develop them originated in Assam, and purple-leaf variants have been found growing wild in the forests of hilly areas in Karbi Anglong.[1]
