Now Let’s See How You Can Reach “Guijan Ghat” =
Click on the above image to see the map in Higher-Resolution. If you live in Tinsukia then you already know how to reach “Guijan-Ghat” but incase you don’t know, you can follow the above map. But if you are visiting tinsukia for the first time, then first follow this map and go to the “Zero-Point” ( look at the center of the map). from there you can use our local transportation medium to go to the Guijan-Ghat. If you find any difficulty finding these places, then you may ask any local person. As Tinsukia is nor a very huge City, almost anyone will be able to show you the way.
