Explore Majuli Islands
A 4 Day 3 Night Tour

Visit Majuli Islands – The nerve center of an Unique Culture

Spread across an area of 880 sq kilometers, Majuli is the largest river – island in the world. Majuli is a biodiversity hotspot and is almost pollution-free due to its thick vegetation and the fact that there are no industries around. Majuli’s wetlands attract a variety of birds from distant destinations every year and is a wonderful place to spot many rare migratory birds. Being the nerve center of the Vaishnavite religion, Majuli has also historically been a center of learning. Various art forms like mask-making and pottery are unique to this island and are still done the way they were done ages ago.

4 – Day Trip To Majuli from Jorhat

The Majuli island is so wonderfully located geographically that it can be very easily clubbed with many of our trips to North East India that we offer. Be it the Hornbill Festival trip in Nagaland, a Meghalaya trip, a trip to Tawang in Arunachal Pradesh, or a quick getaway trip to the Kaziranga National Park. Coming from any of these trips Majuli will feel like a very welcome change. One that will allow you to relax and enjoy at the same time while you do nothing. This itinerary for a Majuli trip helps you the best of Majuli while making sure to take things easy.

Detailed Majuli Trip Plan

Day 1 – Jorhat To Nimati Ghat To Majuli

We start in the morning from Jorhat and head to Nimati ghat to catch our ferry to the Majuli. It’s a wonderful 1.5-hour navigating the mighty Bramhaputra. We soak in the calm views around us, smell the fresh air of the river, and watch other ferries go by.

Once on the islands, we head to our Bamboo cottages and relax. The evening is free to walk the village roads, explore the markets, cycle around, or just enjoy the calm breeze sitting by the river with the local brew in your hand.

Day 2 – Exploring Majuli Islands – Satras Mask-making – Local Food – Sunsets By The River

We start our day by visiting the Satras, the birthplace of Vaishnavite culture in Assam. We explore the unique mask-making art of Majuli by experiencing it firsthand. Interaction with the artists is a good way to learn how these unique masks take shape, from bamboo structures to the final product. In the evening, either cycle around or relax by the river. Post dark, sit by the bonfire, share stories, and sip your favorite brew.

Later in the day, we visit Salmora, the potter’s village, and find out how this cottage industry of the island has survived and flourished over the years. Later in the evening, we walk to the sunset point to witness the obvious, a gorgeous one at that.
