It is widely distributed: the distribution is from the Himalaya to Sri Lanka through South East Asia (includes Myanmar, Indonesia, Indochina, and Thailand) and China, to Oceania (includes the whole of Malesia, the Solomon Islands and Queensland in Australia).  
The species is found in forests and open lowland thickets, climbing over bushes and trees.[1] 
The caterpillars of two rare butterflies, the Common Birdwing (Troides helena cerberus) and Common Rose, feed on the leaves of this plant.

In Indonesia, poultice are made with leaves of the species ; it is applied to the swollen abdomen or limbs. In the Philippines, snake bites and malaria is treated with the plant. In India, the roots are considered a tonic, carminative and emmenagogue.[1]

The plant is looks like Aristolochia tagala Cham. For a comparitive study, please see the attachment files of A. tagala Cham., photographed from Kerala part of Western Ghats.
I agree, the pictures posted by ... are of typical Aristolochia tagala.
But, ... plant is not A. tagala. Both flowers and leaves look different here.
I fully agree with ...

The flowers and leaf shape shows a little variation. But with the keys provided in Fl. China, I could not reach to any conclusion. A perusal of 'Flora of Assam' could help. Waiting to know the correct identity.
