Clicked the moment at Chandubi Festival. Chandubi Lake is natural lake located in Kamrup district of Lower Assam at a distance of 64 kilometers from the city of Guwahati. A large Lake and wet land, created by the devastating earthquake of 1897. Chandubi mesmerized a British officer who came to enjoy the sunset on the lake. So , he desrirbed the lake as the place where the sun sets (set-'dub Joa' in Assamese).
