5 Day 4 Night Downstream Cruise in the Brahmaputra

India
Adventure Provided by: Sanjay Basu

What to expect

Come aboard and join us on this adventure packed expedition cruise for 4 Nights and 5 Days in the Brahmaputra river, Assam, located in the eastern Himalayas of India. The Brahmaputra river is one of Asia's major rivers and India's longest, it starts in the Holy Mount Kailash in Tibet and flows all the way through India and finishing in the Bay of Bengal in Bangladesh.

The Brahmaputra valley in Assam is rich and fertile with unique nature and wildlife, featuring breath-taking blue mountains, intense forests, tribal villages, jute mills, and stunning tea gardens that produce one of the best teas in the world.

Visit Sibsagar and the Ahom civilisation of the Tibeto-Burman origin dated back to the 13th century A.D. The town is built around an enormous man-made water tank, take a walk around the palace of the Ahom Kings. Discover the Shiva Dol, built in 1734 and it is the highest Shiva temple in India.

Explore the Kaziranga National Park on our open top 4-wheel drive jeep safaris. The park is a natural habitat for many mammals like elephants, tigers, Asiatic wild buffaloes, fresh water dolphins, deer, apes (like the Hollock Gibbons), turtles and tortoises. It also hosts two-thirds of the world's great one-horned rhinos.

More than 600 varieties of migratory and local birds like great hornbills, adjutant storks, and black-necked cranes make their home in Kaziranga. You can explore the banks of the river on a boat safari with our tenders to witness other rare species like water lizards, otters, darters, herons, pied kingfishers, white-throated kingfishers, and serpent eagles.

A visit to the Majuli island, land between two rivers, the Subansiri and the Brahmaputra, is a cosmos of the Assamese Culture and the Mishing village, known for its locally-produced ethnic, colourful cotton weaves and vegetables, the houses in this village are constructed on a platform to protect the villagers from high tide.

Our experts will give you informative lectures during the trip about Majuli the seat of Neo–Vaishnav Culture, tea, silk, the jute production in Assam, Sibsagar, the Ahom civilisation, the Brahmaputra river, and wildlife in Kaziranga National Park. Our chef will then give a cooking demonstration of some delicious Indian dishes.
