India River Cruises

Travel the mighty Brahmaputra and Ganges Rivers

India river cruises

Take an expedition style cruise on the mighty Brahmaputra river, the world's third greatest river. The Brahmaputra in Assam spans from 3 to 40 kilometers across (2-25 miles), flowing under the shadows of the eastern Himalayas with mountains reaching a height of over 7400 meters (24,278 feet). The world's largest river island, Majuli, is located in its midst. The mighty Brahmaputra River that has its origins in Tibet, charts its majestic course through the mystic land of Assam.

Assam is the gateway to the northeastern part of India and it is a land of eternal blue hills and beautiful rivers is renowned for its tea, rich flora and fauna, the world famous one-horned rhinoceros and other rare species of wildlife on the verge of extinction. Except for Africa, there is perhaps no part of the world where such a variety of wildlife exists.

The one-horned Indian rhinoceros has been successfully saved from near extinction in the Kaziranga National Park, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Assam also provides one of the last wild habitats for the Asian elephant. It is increasingly becoming a popular destination for wildlife tourism. The area along the river is a true natural history paradise where you find over 850 different species of birds, fresh water dolphins, and four national parks with abundant elephants, single-horned rhinos, and wild buffalo.

Perhaps most fascinating to the visitor, are the over 40 different tribal cultures found in the region.Other attractions are Buddhist monasteries and Hindu Gurukuls, teaching in an education style of over 5,000 years. The architecture of the temples of Assam, built in traditional Indian and Thai styles, showcases the artistic talents of the local people. The brilliant greens of the terraced rice paddies and the lush tea plantations will have you marveling at this little-known paradise.

In the north of the region, the Brahmaputra meet head to head with the Ganges river and then flow out to the sea through the world’s largest delta. Inland, however, on the rich agricultural land lie prosperous towns and villages, rich in history and culture. This is village India at its best, completely unknown to tourists. A cruise going north from Calcutta on the intimate River Hugli can be linked with cruises on the Ganges proper from the Bangladesh border up to the historic city of Patna.

Exciting, exotic and lush scenery awaits you on your river cruise through India. Book your cruise today!
