Brahmaputra River Cruises, Tours & Trips
Originating in the Himalayas, the Brahmaputra River flows through Tibet, the Indian state of Assam, and Bangladesh before reaching the Bay of Bengal. The city of Guwahati serves as the starting point for many Brahmaputra River cruises. Extending along the south bank of the river, the older districts of the city, set around ponds, palm trees, temples, traditional houses and colonial-era mansions, are filled with character and local flavor. Guwahati’s Assam Tea Auction at Dispur is the largest trade center in the world for the “crush, tear and curl” tea, which is characteristic of Assam.
Other attractions and activities on your Brahmaputra cruise include village walks, visits to tea gardens and local craft workshops, cycle rickshaw exploration of country towns, barbecues on deserted river islands, and dazzling dance performances. Highlights include the temples in Tezpur, wildlife spotting in the Nameri National Park, and Rhino spotting in the Kaziranga National Park.
