Peacock Island, Guwahati
Umananda Island is a river island in the midst of river Brahmaputra flowing through the city of Guwahati in Assam. It is the smallest inhabited river island in the world. The British named the island Peacock Island because it resembled a peacock’s feathers splayed in full view.
A 10 minute ferry ride from the river banks of the busy city takes you to this island of wonder. When you reach there, time becomes an alien concept. The motor boats are available everyday from 7am to 5pm.
