theculturetrip

Our planet is a unique place that contains even the most unique and weird places and people that we coul possibly find. A river island is not something that we’ve never heard before, but the size of Majuli is something to remember. Majuli is currently the largest river island in the world, but it has shrunk over the past few years, since the river surrounding it has grown significantly. It is expected that in over 15-20 years the island will have been covered completely from water or have been destroyed from erosion.

It might be small, but it’s worth taking a notice.

The river lost 352 square meters of its land due to erosion, but is still the largest river island in the world.
