About Sonitpur, Assam, India

Sonitpur is a district in Assam, India, one of the state's larger districts by area, located along the northern border of the state with Arunachal pradesh, between the northern banks of the Brahmaputra river and the border of the hilly and mountainous regions to the north. It is bordered to the west by Udalguri, to the southwest by Darrang, and to the south by Nagaon.

In 2015, the eastern part of this district was broken off to form Biswanath district. Many maps do not yet reflect this change, but this does not concern tea drinkers much, as single-origin teas from the new Biswanath district are rarely availlable in the West.

Sonitpur is one of the key tea-producing districts in Assam. Belseri, Chardwar, Gingia and Tarajulie estates are located here.

This district is ethnically and linguistically diverse, owing both to indigenous people who have lived in the region, and various tribes brought here from central India to work in the tea industry.

The district is also home to a number of wildlife sanctuaries and parks. The area consists mostly of flat, low-lying areas
