The Brahmaputra River

August 15, 2014 River Cruising No Comments Email Email

The Brahmaputra River, one of the greatest river cruise of the world, combining experiences of natural and living history.


This is the world’s only cruise that navigates under the shadows of over 6500 meter high snow covered Himalayan peaks, seen clearly in good weather. It is also the only other river apart from the Zambezi River in Africa from which you can do boat, jeep and elephant safaris. You see the largest population of Rhinos in the world, which are the Single Horned Indian Rhinos, the Asian Elephants, Wild Buffaloes and on a lucky day the Royal Bengal Tigers. You also see the Fresh Water Gangetic Dolphins, the only ape of South Asia, the Hollock Gibbons and over 400 species of birds including the very large sized birds like the Great Hornbills, Pelicans, Black Necked Storks and Greater Adjutant Storks.

However, apart from nature and natural history the cruise also offers an education on tea with visit to tea plantations and factories, visit to weaver’s and tribal villages, temples, palaces and monasteries. You witness three different dance forms of the region and a great Living History.

India is a great land of diversities of religions, cultures and nature. Possibly the diversity of India is best defined in the words used often to describe this land as – A Sub-Continent! All these have thrived and prospered on the banks of it’s rivers and there is no better way to explore India, than on a great river cruise voyage.

The M.V.Mahabaahu on the Brahmaputra River is a combination of a four star superior category ship with trappings of a five star ship and general space areas that are luxurious for just 46 passengers. However, the destination and the experience of the voyage has been described by many as a five star experience of natural and living history.

Do keep your eyes on India as this is the next great river cruise destination of the world that is unfolding and it’s great rivers will shortly be taking their place in the pantheon of the great rivers of the world to voyage through!
