7 Night 8 Day Upstream Cruise on the Bramhaputra

Yacht Charter and Boat Rental in Assam

Adventure Provided by: Sanjay B. · Boat Owner

What to expect

Imagine sailing on one of Asia's major rivers and India's longest river: the Brahmaputra, a transboundary river that flows through 3 countries, India, Bangladesh and China. She originates from the Himalayas in Tibet, flows through several regions in India until finally reaching Bangladesh to become one with the Bay of Bengal. As she flows her long course, she has created a rich history for the people, cultures, nourishing lands, nature and animals she has created and she has preserved!

What better way to explore this ancient river, than sail through her winding course over a 7 Night 8 Day Cruise, on a boat that offers maximum comfort and luxury? Let's experience together, the magic of the rich, fertile Brahmaputra Valley in Assam, northeast India, that has been sustained by this river since time began!

On this cruise, we will explore culture and tradition like on our visit to the Kamakhya Temple. This temple is dedicated to the eternal Feminine, Goddess of Desire, Kama Khya! Our expert team will give you detailed information through talks on the visit to Majuli, the seat of the Neo Vaishnav Culture, while you enjoy peaceful sailing towards Mishing Village.

You will appreciate the visit to Sibsagar, the ancient city of the Ahom civilisation, 13th Century, AD of the Tibeto-Burman origin. Sibsagar was originally known as Rangpur and the entire town was built intelligently around a water tank.

It’s our endeavour to give you the most out of this sailing experience, where you will become part of the ample heritage that defines this area. Throughout our journey, we will offer you informative talks on places we visit. Get to know Assam and Bramhaputra through our talks on the geographical location, its importance, products, people, and local life. What better way to jumpstart your day than with yoga every morning on the deck? Get busy and get hands on experience as we explore the tea and jute estates at Kaliabore and the local weavers’ village at Biswanath Ghat.

For all the animal and nature lovers, the trip to Kaziranga National Park on our open top 4-wheel drive jeep safaris will give you the perfect opportunity to experience the nature and wildlife that is protected in the park. A natural habitat for numerous animals like elephants, tigers, Asiatic wild buffaloes, fresh water dolphins, deer, apes, turtles and tortoises. It also hosts 2/3rds of the world's great one-horned rhinos.

Don't miss the chance to explore the banks of the river on a boat safari to Dhansiri, where you witness wonderful rare species of animals and local and migratory birds. Kaziranga is sure to take your breath away.

Throughout this trip relish on scrumptious food made by our talented Chef and sample local food at villages and temples.
