This cruise is perhaps the ideal introduction to the Brahmaputra plains combined with a visit to the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Kaziranga National Park, the highlight of any visit to Assam. It also includes the rarely-visited Nameri National Park, visit to a tea garden, and a trip through the bazaars of Tezpur in cycle rickshaws. This cruise on the highest navigable reaches of the Brahmaputra highlights the unique culture of the area, fusing Indian and Southeast Asian influences with a visit to Sibsagar – the old capital of the Ahom kings – and Majuli Island, with its unique Hindu monastic communities famous for their dance drama. Wildlife is not forgotten and the cruise visits the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Kaziranga National Park where sightings of one-horned rhinos are virtually guaranteed
Assam boasts two out of India’s five UNESCO Natural World Heritage sites, and we have devised this 8-day tour to provide visits to both these sites, Manas and Kaziranga National Parks, together with a short cruise on the mighty Brahmaputra River.
