Nirbhay Dubey 0

Majuli is the largest inhabited river island in the world. 

The island is formed by the Brahmaputra river in the south and the Kherkutia Xuti, an anabranch of the Brahmaputra, joined by the Subansiri River in the north. 

It has a total area of 1,250 square kilometres but has significantly lost land due to soil erosion. It now has an area of only 352 square kilometres in 2014.

It can be accessed by ferries from the city of Jorhat in Assam.
