Nimati, Jorhat Overview

Nimati Ghat, or just Nimati, is one of the most essential ports in Assam. It is the only entry point to the largest river island in the world, Majuli and it serves as a link for ferries that go to Auniata and Kamalabari. This Ghat is located near the Brahmaputra river and is significant not only for local villages here but also for upper Assam. 

The ferries that run from Nimati Ghat to Majuli are government-run. Hence, they are simplistic wooden boats that have long benches on the side, facing each other. Right from locals singing folk songs to touching the water of river Brahmaputra to witnessing the sunset, especially from the upper deck of the boat. Apart from that, Nimati Ghat also serves as a commercial carrying centre, financial institution and an administrative headquarters for Assam. It is truly a one-of-a-kind and off-beat attraction which is a must-visit when in Jorhat.
