Chowki

Chowki is the perfect weekend gateaway and picnic spot at Uttarkuci in Baksa district of Assam. It attracts hundreds of people from across the region during the onset of winter. Filled with immense scenic beauty, lush green mountains and meandering rivers that cross its diversified landscapes, the place is a picnicker's treat.

A local NGO comprising of local youths, some of them ex-militants who have laid down their arms and others ex-poachers, have taken the responsibility to develop Chowki and its adjoining areas. A minimum entry fee is charged from every picnic party and the revenue collected is utilized for the maintenance of the place.

The Sashastra Seema Bal (SSB), has its base-camps in the area and this also helps to maintain peace in the area.
