If we go by the Books it is The line that separates the Earth from the Sky,But has anyone ever seen that line….It is always like as much as close we get to them they seem to be as much as far from us,but then that is the way it is defined.. 😀

So,instead of defining we just can look at them and adore.. 😀

Anyone want to know more about NE ,its beauty and Tourism–Check Here

The Largest river Island in India situated in the North-Eastern state of Assam which was used to be the Largest Island in the world but arguably still the largest inhabited river island…

The Nomination of including Majuli in the UNESCO World Heritage Site definitely makes it one of the destinations to visit when you are on a trip to North East India..

A land of Vaishnavite culture and situated on the middle of the river Brahmaputra,Majuli has been the Cultural Capital and the cradle of Assamese civilization for the past five hundred years. Home to 22 Satras and the principal seat of Vaishnavite faith, culture and practice. The Satras are Vaishnava monasteries established in the 16th century by the saint and cultural reformer Srimanta Sankaradeva and his disciple IVIadhab Deva.

A total area 500 sq.km which is in continuous shrinkage due to erosion and the increase of river surrounding but that does not prevent it of the fact of being a site of Historical Importance for Assam dated back to 16th Century.

How To Reach:-Majuli is around 20 kms from Jorhat City, can be reached bus to taxi to Namiti Steamer Ghat from where ferry services ply to the island. The journey takes about 3 hours.

Jorhat City can be reached form Guwahati,the capital city of Assam by Train, Bus or Air.By road the diatsnce is about 300 km and it takes around 6-7 hours,there is direct train services from Guwahati to Jorhat and regular Air Services ply for Guwahati to Jorhat..But those making a trip to Majuli,I insist them to take the Road to adore the nature on the way to Majuli…

What to See:-Though there is lot more to see and enjoy in entire North-East India but to a enjoy relaxing and peaceful vacation for few days and adoring the Assamese Culture this place is very recommended. You can experience the lifestyle of the local tribes there. Mishing, Assamese and Deuri are the local inhabitants of this place. They are helpful and charming.
