Day 03: Kaziranga to Neemati Ghat to Majuli:
After breakfast we will set out for Majuli. Majuli is the first island district of India. Situated in the heart of mighty Brahmaputra, this island has an area of around 1250 square kilometers. Start early in the morning from kaziranga and head to Neemati Ghat to take your ferry to the Majuli - The world's largest river island. It’s a wonderful 1.5 hour’s navigating the mighty Brahmaputra. We soak-in the calm views around, smell the fresh air of the river and watch other ferries go by. Once on the island, we head for our Bamboo cottages and relax. The evening is free for you 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 04: 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.

Post dark, sit by the bonfire, share stories and sip your favourite brew.
