Staying Safe in Diphu

As in any city, there are a few common sense rules to follow to stay safe. Look after your personal belongings and try not to travel alone late at night. Ask your hotel or hosts for advice when travelling to unfamiliar areas.

Violent crime against visitors is uncommon. However, pickpockets do target unsuspecting tourists in crowded areas, so take care on the Tube or in busy areas.

Karbi Anglong’s Police Force

The Diphu Police, is dedicated to working for a safer Karbi Anglong. The Met forms a visible presence on the streets of Diphu, at railway stations and airports.

In emergencies, always dial 100 and ask for the police. To a report non-urgent crime, contact your local police station.

Staying Healthy in Diphu

Visitors who become ill while in Diphu are eligible for free treatment in Accident and Emergency departments at Diphu Civil Hospital.
In emergencies, always dial 108 (Mrityunjay) and ask for the help, which will reach to you within 15/20 mints.

Food Assistance
If you need any assistance carrying food  on the festival grounds, contact a AEF’2015 “Courtesy Staff” member for assistance.

Drinking Fountains
Drinking fountains are located outside each restroom area and are accessible to all. Drinking fountains can also be found near the” Ethnic Village” Area.

Please Note:
Service animals are allowed on the grounds provided the animal does not pose a danger or threat to other service animals or patrons. Owners of service animals are responsible for the animal’s personal cares. A relief area for service animals is located near the “Thong Nokbe Pavilion”.

For accommodations for people who are deaf, hard of hearing, blind or have low vision and other services please contact the AEF’2015 “Courtesy Staff”.



Ample parking is available both in privately operated lots and along city streets. Fees vary. Vendors with booth spaces will receive directions to special unloading areas at the gates.

MONEY: Cash machines / ATM / cash points

There are 10 cash withdrawal machines (also known as cash points or ATMs) around Diphu.

Most accept international cards with the Visa, Plus, MasterCard, Cirrus or Maestro symbols. Other card types are also recognized, but it’s a good idea to check with your bank before you travel.

If you have a non-INDIAN account you’ll almost certainly have to pay a charge when you withdraw cash from a machine. Again, contact your bank before travelling for details.

When using ATMs, remember

  • Put your money away carefully and discreetly.
  • Don’t give money to people in the street as this shows where you keep your wallet.


AEF is not only an entertaining event but an educational experience. Come and explore the cultural village, sample a variety of ethnic foods, shop around the Marketplace, let the kids play in the Children’s Parks and enjoy lots of great entertainment.

Our festival honours culture, tradition, and family. AEF encourages individuals from all ethnic backgrounds to share their rich history, art, music and foods. Each day of  AEF will be a unique and unforgettable experience.

Come together to enjoy all of these great Special Attractions!
