Crested in the bosom of the mighty Brahmaputra and fondly tucked up by Lohit and Khabalu, the land mass of Majuli enjoys the privilege of being the largest river island in the world. It's individual distinctiveness is that it is not uphill, down dale, snow capped mountains or warbling mountain springs which put a tourist into the thrall inMajuli, but it is the freedom of the wind, the freedom of the rivers, the vistas of freedom opening up one after another, the freedom of the birds and the pristine primitiveness, simplicity and innocence of the people living for centuries at close proximity of nature that sways, excites and thrifts the imagination of the tourists. During the monsoon, the rivers swell and vast tracts of land are submerged.

Majuli is the birthplace of Vaishnava Satras. Sankardeva founded the first Vaishnava Satra in the fifteenth century at Majuli. At present there are twenty-two satras in Majuli. Among these twenty-two existing Satras, the better known Satras are Dakhinpat, Garamurh, Auniati, Kamalabari, Samaguri and Bengenaati Satra. In Majuli there are several places for viewing the full sunset during winter. Various species of rare migratory birds like Pelican are found in Majuli and it is an ideal place for bird's watchers.
