Start the day with Yoga or go for a walk along the swamps to catch a sight of owls, orioles, changeable eagles, adjutant storks, sea gulls, kingfishers, swallows and many more. As you have your breakfast, we sail towards Majuli, a cosmos of Assamese culture where various philosophies co-exist and thrive.
After breakfast, enjoy a talk on 'Majuli, the seat of Vaishnav culture’ before boarding the excursion boats to the mainland where a short drive takes you to a scenic corner of a ‘Satra’ (monastery) for an interesting cultural performance by Satriya singers and dancers.
Next, proceed to Kamlabari Satra to witness the Vaishnavite priests dancing to the rhythm of cymbals, drums and chanting in the temple premise. You will enjoy a hot lunch onboard MV Mahabaahu as we sail towards the closest Mishing Village.
The Mishings live on the bank of river in 'Chang Ghars', houses with raised platforms. All Mishing women are expert weavers. Here you can buy ethnic colourful cotton weaves and indulges in a dhoti tying and Mekhela Chaadar wearing demonstration.
After the Mishing Village visit, MV Mahabaahu heads towards Dhansiri Mukh where the waters of Brahmaputra and Dhansiri meet, while you enjoy a talk on ‘Assam, its geographical location & importance’.
Later, enjoy the evening under the stars on a deserted island and proceed for dinner.
