Majuli is the world’s biggest stream island in the Guinness Book of World Records. This beautiful waterway island is arranged on the Brahmaputra River and had toppled Marajo in Brazil to secure the top spot as world’s biggest stream island. Aside from lavish greenery, a tremendous assortment of vegetation, one thing that makes Majuli absolutely a traveler hotspot is its lively culture. The island is shaped by the Brahmaputra waterway in the south and the Kherkutia Xuti, an anabranch of the Brahmaputra, joined by the Subansiri River in the north. Mājuli island is available by ships from the city of Jorhat. The island is around 300–400 kilometers east from the state’s biggest city — Guwahati. Majuli signifies ‘the land between two parallel waterways’ and, truly, this island was framed by the conversion of Brahmaputra and its anabranches. Notwithstanding, in light of the fact that the forceful Brahmaputra River alters its course oftentimes, combined with various disintegrations, Majuli Island may very well vanish later on.
