Hello my beauties! Hope y’all are doing great, I came back from an inexplicably remarkable trip few days back those who are following me on Instagram they already know about it but those who aren’t this is for you my friends. In this post I m gonna share everything about my journey to the world’s biggest river island “Majuli” on the river Bramhaputra in Assam India. So are you ready to go with me in this roller coaster journey if yes then hop on.
My crew and I flew to Jorhat, Assam from kolkata because that’s the nearest place to get to Majuli. We spent the night in a friend’s place and the next morning we began our journey I would like to clear things here now not everyone has friends in Jorhat so in that case there are many hotels and lodges back there according to your budget you will definitely get a decent deal and one more thing you can come to Jorhat in 3 different ways roadways, railways and airways from across all parts of India this place is connected in all possible ways. Now while going to that Island you really need your own vehicle because that’s way it’ll be better for you to get access to every corner of the place. Hire a car from Jorhat or bring your own.
We first visit the place from where we can board our boat and that place is “Nimati Ghat” it’s about 30 kms from Jorhat only after reaching that place I got to know how amazing a Ghat can look, everywhere there was sand and the mesmerising beauty of river Bramhaputtra was touching my soul. We spent the whole day there at the Ghat clicking the beauty of that place and spending time with the local people talking about their livelihood near the river they said “It may look beautiful from outside but this river gets monstrous during monsoon which causes flood, life becomes so difficult when you are uncertain about your place and have to move frequently”. I could feel them yet this is life and has to go on.
The boats there play a great role they carry supplies from Jorhat all the way to the Island everything you get in that Island comes from Jorhat right from your food to your daily requirements. The boat carries you along with your vehicle right from the Ghat to the Island, it hardly takes an hour to reach there and the process of getting down from the boat is the same way you get up in the boat. You’ll get all sort of help in case you need any as the local people are really very generous in that Island so no need to worry you just have to ask for it.
We stayed there at the Ghat till sunset and the next morning we board our boat to Majuli. As it was monsoon when we were at the Island but that didn’t dismantle our trip we enjoyed everything that Island could provide so it’s a myth that “you shouldn’t visit during monsoon”. If you are a female making a solo trip than I would suggest be more careful because things are very rustic back there at with zero urban influence so that’s pretty much sums up everything although I didn’t face any sort of bad things coming from the local people yet I would never be there by my self.
In the next post I’ll upload some videos which will make things even more approachable for you also I’ll write everything right from what was the first thing I did after reaching Majuli. So stay tuned to my blog and yeah don’t forget to enjoy the pictures which I clicked at the Nimati Ghat. Thank you so much for reading and take care.
