Majuli Homestay


Majuli

Majuli is the world’s largest river Island and is formed by course changes of River Brahmputra and its tributaries. Home to the simple Mishing, Deori and Sonowal Kachari tribes, the island is the hub of Neo-Vaishnavite culture of Assam. The air is filled with the music of flute and prayer songs. The religious leaders called Sattradhars recite the vedic scriptures while the villagers clap hands and bow their heads in unison.  There are 21 satras, each specializing in certain craft. Not only this, Majuli houses some rare species of flora and fauna and also attracts many migratory bird during winters.

A ferry from Neemati ghat, Jorhat will take you to this beautiful island which is best visited between the months of Oct and April.
