5 Day 4 Night Upstream Cruise in Brahmaputra

India
Adventure Provided by: Sanjay Basu

What to expect

Come and join us on this incredible river cruise in the mythological Brahmaputra River in the state of Assam, in the eastern Himalayas of India. This expedition-style cruise is rated among the top 10 adventure holidays in the world. Brahmaputra, which is the longest river in India originates on Mount Kailash in Tibet and flows all the way to the bay of Bengal. It is also one of the major rivers in the entire Asian continent. 

The blissful Assam is a delightful paradise with unique nature and wildlife and it features enchanting mountains, alluring rivers, semi-evergreen forests, tribal villages, jute mills and captivating tea gardens which produce one of the finest tea in the world. 

Kaziranga National Park in the Brahmaputra Valley hosts two-thirds of the world's great one-horned rhinos and 180 different mammals including elephants, tigers, Asiatic wild buffaloes, fresh water dolphins, deer, apes (like the Hollock Gibbons), turtles and tortoises. Explore the park on our open top 4-wheel drive jeeps. 

It is also a natural habitat for more than 600 varieties of migratory and local birds like great hornbills, adjutant storks and black-necked cranes. A boat safari on our tenders will give you a chance to see driftwood, water lizards, otters, darters, herons, pied kingfishers, white-throated kingfishers, serpent eagles and much more. The national park is full of endless surprises!

We will stop for a visit at the Mishing Village where you can buy locally-produced ethnic colourful cotton weaves and vegetables. The houses here are built on a platform in the bank of the river, in order to protect from high tides. Discover the Vaishnavite priests grooving to the beat of cymbals, drums and chanting in the temple. 

Experience Sibsagar, the ancient city of the Ahom Kings that literally means "the ocean of Lord Shiva" which reveals the ruins of a powerful empire of the Ahoms of Tibeto-Burman origins, dated back to the 13th Century AD. 

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

Please note: cruising takes place between 6 am and 6 pm. Night cruising is not recommended by the Inland Waterways Authority of India. The price quoted here is the starting value and it is subject to increase according to the type of cabins and length of the itinerary. The sightings are always determined by the weather conditions.
