NOTE ABOUT SMOKING & ALCOHOL

Everyone joining is an adult and we cannot dictate how you should enjoy the trip. All we ask is to drink responsibly. Hangover delays are going to cost delays, and will not be tolerated at all. In Majuli, alcohol will not be available as Raas is not just a tourist festival but a local religious affair.
If you smoke, please do so outside the room, even if the rooms have ashtray. 

Note > Prepare > Accept > Embrace

  • Culture in Assam is laid back. The food is prepared fresh and the order needs to be placed at least an hour in advance, especially for group travel. Please cooperate with your trip lead.
  • Even though it is winter, there may be mosquitoes around the Brahmaputra. Please come prepared with mosquito repellent.
  • Raas is not just a tourist attraction, it is a religious festival of the region. Pilgrims from all across Assam visit to attend the drama performances by the monks. Expect crowds like you would at any major festival in India.
  • The dramas at Raas take place between 8PM and 4AM. This is so that the locals can attend it after their daily chores and responsibilities. We do not have to attend it till the end and can leave after a few hours. 

 

NOTE ABOUT SMOKING & ALCOHOL:

Everyone joining is an adult and we realise that we cannot dictate the behaviour on how you should enjoy the trip. All we ask is to drink responsibly. Hangover delays are going to cost a lot, and will not be tolerated at all. So please do not test your limits and enjoy in moderation. Also, do respect your roommate’s comfort levels with the alcohol smell and avoid drinking in the room if she is not comfortable.
If you smoke, please do so outside the room, even if the rooms have ashtray.
