Brahmaputra: Not only is the Brahmaputra one of the greatest rivers in the Indian Subcontinent, but it is also immensely vast, often resembling the sea in certain parts of its course. We introduce two short river cruising itineraries that cover stretches of the Brahmaputra river, taking guests from the capital city of Guwahati, all the way to the upper reaches of the state of Assam.
Assam: Assam, which literally means ‘a peerless land’, is the gateway to Northeast India. With its blue rivers that often resemble the sea; green mountains that are home to leopards and elephants; and swathes of aromatic tea gardens forming the world’s largest tea-growing region, it’s easy to understand why this state is a very special place on earth.
