Sonitpur is a district in Assam, India, one of the state's largest 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 southeast by Golaghat and to the east by Lakhimpur.

It 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 is mostly low elevation and the climate is subtropical with a strongly seasonal rainfall pattern.

Note: in 2015, the eastern part of this district was broken off to form Biswanath district; our maps do not yet reflect this division, but we plan to add it as soon as we can get accurate boundary data.
