ok, so I have some work in Guwahati in late Dec, and I have the last week to myself. I have not traveled alone previously, so a lil cautious, but I would love to plan a lil backpacking trip in Assam.

I will layout my constraints as best as I can, and then we can engage further.

financial: 10k <exclusive fo ticket to and from guwahati>
safety : I would love to bring along my DSLR, but i can forgo that if it demands,
that part i just don't want to be robbed, i am completely willing to visit desolate places, i would love the serenity

also I will have only 4-5 days, so nothing too far away from guwahati.

This is my first post, and i am sure to be flamed, but thats okay, as long as i get some pointers, I really am clueless, all i have is a vague idea that i want to have a few days to myself, in the mountains.

A trip to the north east for a regular holiday seeker is

Guwahati, Shillong, Cheerpunji, Kaziranga and back.

I suggest

Guwahati, Kaziranga, Sibsagar, Dibrugarh,

Kotha, Majuli island, Tezpur, Rangiya and back to Guwahati. You can also Board a train from Rangiya.

All these places are totally safe and secure. You can roam as freely as any other place in India with little less crowd. To stay at Majuli island you need to go the vaishnavite satras, a hindu religious body's. Boarding a ferry is compulsory.

Do not expect any fancy food or travel unless you hire a taxi.

I wish you a happy journey.
