Kolkata & the Mighty Brahmaputra (12 days)

The mighty Brahmaputra river dominates life in Northeastern India. Originating high in the Himalayas, it flows down through the scenic Assam Valley, supporting UNESCO protected national parks as well as a medley of remote rural communities. An expedition along this river will provide the traveller with the most wonderful and authentic experiences, far away from any standard tourist trail. In this itinerary you will spend 7-nights on board the very comfortable MV Mahabaahu, a vessel designed specifically for navigating these waters. The Mahabaahu’s knowledgeable expedition team will take you on safaris by small boat, jeep and even elephant in search of the Greater One-Horned Indian Rhinoceros and Indian tiger. This will be accompanied by fascinating visits to meet the ‘Mishing’ people who live on the world’s largest river island, plus many tea plantations and exotic Satras to explore. The cruise is bookended with stays in Kolkata, arguably the most atmospheric and intriguing of all Indian cities. Truly, a trip to provide lifelong memories.
