Famously known as the 'Oil City of Assam', Digboi was discovered during the 19th century. The city has Asia's 1st drilled oil well, which is a major tourist attraction in Assam. Tucked amid blue hills and undulating plains carpeted with emerald green tea plantations, Digboi still retains its colonial ambience. It's simply breathtaking to have a bird's eye view of Digboi from the famous Ridge Hill point. Digboi also has an oil museum and a wildlife sanctuary of unsurpassed beauty. Going down the hill, visitors will come across oil derricks of various types and other devices still declaring the glory and marvel of the now outdated innovation of the last forties. On the other side of the hill, one can view fabulous sceneries and it is possible to even come across a herd of elephants or a Royal Bengal Tiger, besides some rare species of birds. There is an 18-hole golf course developed by the Scottish pioneers. In fact, Digboi can almost be called a Golfing Resort with as many as eight golf courses within close proximity, each with its own individual character and challenges.
