ATDC to launch carbon-free tourism experience in Majuli

Published on : Wednesday, November 1, 2017

Assam Tourism Development CorporationThe Assam Tourism Development Corporation (ATDC) will launch the Majuli Sustainable Tourism Development Project (MSTDP) this week in order to encourage carbon-free tourism experience in the largest river island of India.

 
The project to be launched in November will feature daily cycle rides to different Mishing villages and Vaishnavite Satras in the island where trained storytellers will narrate the history, tales and legends of the mystic island to the tourists.

 
The Mishing tribesmen are Vaishnavites who are followers of Lord Krishna comprising 60 per cent of the population in Majuli.

 
Storytelling is the key element of this eco-friendly tourism project. It would take tourists through a virtual tour of culture, folk literature, art and craft and the society as a whole.
There will be tourism activities like tours for students and only women tours where the visitors can experience authentic village life and learn about Sattriya culture.

 
Cycles will be available on rent for the tourists at Majuli. Helmets and other gears will also be provided to the visitors for their safe ride.

 
ATDC is aiming to promote Majuli as a “responsible” tourism destination in the north-eastern region.

 
The Assam government had recently announced that Majuli will be the first carbon neutral district in the country and steps have been initiated to achieve the goal.
