Come face to face with a tradition fishermen tribe and their iconic bamboo homes built on stilts.
The Mishing tribal community is a tribe of fishermen with some agriculture, animal husbandry to supplement their income. The women weave cotton fabric and brew the local apong beer. The people live in bamboo huts built on stilts along the banks of the Brahmaputra River and when the river rises in floods, they climb into their wooden canoes and paddle away to high ground to weather the 2-3 monsoon months, only to return in September to rebuild their huts and village for the winter months.
