The ladies wanted to purchase some handloom items and got to know about this village where almost every house has a loom and are traditional weavers. Drove to the place and were just looking around for some kind of sign etc but none to be found!
A person came out and we got talking. Turns out he is a recognised organic farmer. He gave us some directions to a shop where we did get the stuff we were looking for.
The village is pretty laid back and unassuming. Nice for a cycle ride with good roads. The houses all have a boat to navigate during monsoons when the area gets flooded with approx 2 feet of water. I was amazed to know that the people grow 3 crops of rice in an year!
Overall a nice place to visit if you are interested in such kind of stuff. Not for the typical photo clicking - posting on social media kind of travellers.

Majuli is noted not only for being the largest river island, but is also famous for the cultural aspect of its native inhabitants- the Mishing islanders. It is worth visiting the stilt bamboo houses of Mishing tribe and also dining with them. Recommended time to visit is during Ali-ai-ligang festival in Feb and Po-Rag community feast in Mar.

They are one of the ethnic tribes that inhabit the land of Majuli, The World's largest river island. There are many Mising villages in the whole of Majuli. Known also as Miri tribes, whose settlements are based on the availability of water and fish resources. They are known as the perfect fish-hunter. But they always follow a protocol while fishing. Instead of overcrowding and haphazard fishing, these people always hunt in a proper scheduled manner so that enough time can be given for the fishes for breeding.

Mising people are very friendly towards tourist. They will offer you a drink call as 'Apong'(Rice-beer) which is made from rice. A little faint-green in colour. Mind it, they only offer 'Apong' to those people to whom they find very warm and welcoming. They weave beautiful clothes. I will say don't hesitate to buy one because their livelihood is based on this only.

Of course you will notice the very fine and very beautiful 'Chaang-ghar' in which the reside. Mising people always built their homes albeit a height from the land and they look very beautiful and clean. Please don't litter and give them their due respect.

This is a village of Mishing Tribe. Houses are made of Bamboo. The one that we visited had 18 family members living together in one house. Considering frequent rains, houses are built at a height with a bamboo stair case to climb up. It had a huge room separated by bamboo sheets. There was a big kitchen with cooking place in the centre. Very different and interesting.

The title should be "Mishing" and not "Missing".
We left our boat and were brought to the banks of the Brahmaputra on a delightful sunny day. There was little traffic, either pedestrian or vehicular as we sat on plastic chairs and watched the river flow by in a most tranquil setting.
As our group waited for the dancers, a considerable number of local residents assembled to join with us to watch the dancing display to be performed, The first part was a group of six ladies in delightful colourful traditional dress who displayed superb athleticism and refinement in a cultural enactment. This was followed by a theatrical display of male dancers dressed as monkeys or "devils" who performed energetic scenes of combat. Whilst not to my taste, it highlighted a village enactment of a myth and the detail of costumes far out weighed the reality and delighted the local villagers watching..

They are found in only a couple of places and Majuli is one. They live in huts just outside the town on the way from ghat to town. Their houses are build on bamboo sticks so that any water coming due to high rise in brahmaputra doesnt seep into the house. This tribe is known for weaving clothes ans woven and are very friendly in nature. We also got a quick weaving lesson which was fun. Assam government should do something to propogate their work and uplift them.
