Lesser known tourist spots in India

Majuli, Assam: World’s largest fresh water island

Tourism means travel for pleasure; Tourism is the theory and practice of touring. It is the

business of attracting, accommodating and entertaining tourists. In a multi-religious and multi-

cultural country like India, there are more than 100 lesser known or we can say infamous places

which are yet to be explored by the Indians themselves.

One of such lesser known tourist spots also include Majuli of Assam, which has also been termed as the “World’s largest fresh water island”. Majuli is a large river island which is located in the Bramhaputra River of Assam occupying an area of 1,250 square kilometers (483 sq mi),but significantly reducing to 352 Kilometers reason being erosion by the year 2014.

Majuli has shrunk as the river surrounding it has grown. This island was formed due to the course change by the river Brahmaputra and its tributaries.

Majuli is a beautiful and unexplored place resplendent with several festivals throughout.
Majuli is probably most beautiful during the monsoon, when the river is swollen and beautiful.
October-March is a nice time to visit, with the cool climate makes a trip to Majuli absolutely

Mājuli is the abode of the Assamese neo-Vaisnavite culture and a must visit tourist spot in
