Mishing activity

If you choose to take a boat safari to the Northern part of Agoratoli range where there is a confluence between the Dhansiri and the Brahmaputra , you can see these fishing nets put up by the local Mishing people.

They are called ‘Ghat Jaals’ and are basically a version of the Chinese fishing nets.

This process of fishing is very interesting based on the funnel method. Two rows of thin bamboos are placed at both ends of the net which traps the fish and directs them to the mouth of the funnel.The gap between the bamboos is placed in such a way where the bigger fishes cannot escape. In their struggle to get out, the thin bamboo begin to vibrate, thereby alerting the fishermen that fishes have been trapped. They then lower the net slowly, tap the bamboos and open the mouth of the funnel.

As we ride along the river, one can view the Agoratoli range where big cat sightings have taken place along the sandbanks and River Dolphins.
The safari duration is about two and a half hours.

Mishing is one of the indigenous tribal communities of Assam with a rich tradition of weaving. A Mishing woman, despite being engaged in myriad household activities through the day, would spend some time on her loom everyday. The women make garments, mainly for everyday use, through handloom weaving. They also weave classy products for special occasions. Mishing villages are on the banks of the Brahmaputra River and its mighty tributaries. Every year the area faces devastating floods. The recurrent floods reduce the scope of alternate livelihood.The traditional throw shuttle loom is built under the stilt house, such houses being a traditional practice among the Mishings to adapt to the floods. Using a tedious process that needs patience, the weavers produce wraps like mekhela chador and gero, stole like gamosa, besides some utilitarian items. Traditionally, weaving in Mishing community was for their own use. But these days Mishing handloom products are much in demand. Come tour a Mishing village and get a glimpse of their way of life.


If you do not want to do a Safari in kaziranga but want to see something else around, then a visit to the majestic KAIPHOLANGSO waterfall is a must.

It is around 12 kms from Agoratoli Jungalow. One has to drive to a certain point and take a gypsy. If you prefer a little bit of adventure you can trek the gypsy route, which goes alongside the river.

The trek is worth experiencing and is only about 1.5 kilometres. The trek will also do you good to build up a hearty appetite. The mist from the falls hits you and makes you forget all your tiredness, its like being transported to a different land altogether.
It’s an awesome sight and feel. The best time is to do it in the morning.
