The city of Digboi, around 200 km from Jorhat, has been bestowed with an eccentric amalgamation of tea, nature, wild animals, British culture, and war and boasts of a disparate experience. The main attraction is the Dibru Saikhowa Wildlife Sanctuary, which is the largest wildlife park of Assam and is located on the banks of River Brahmaputra; 60 km from Digboi. Home to over 300 species of birds, along with several migratory birds, it is an ideal getaway for birdwatchers. Some of the popular species you can find are Bengal florican, white-winged wood duck and spotted billed pelican. The sanctuary gained the status of National Park in 1999 and ranks amongst the 19 biodiversity hotspots throughout the world.

Also known as the oil city of Assam, Digboi was the first Asian city where an oil well was drilled and the foremost refinery set up in 1901. It has the oldest oil well in operation, a well-developed infrastructure with guest houses and tourist residential apartments laid on Italian architectural plan. Over 100 years old, it produces approximately 65 million metric tonne oil per annum with the use of modern technology.
