The banks of the mighty Brahmaputra boast riches galore, from wildlife to tea gardens, walks through tiny villages to cycle rickshaw rides through country towns. With many places almost inaccessible on foot, a cruise is a leisurely, pleasurable way to experience the ‘real India’ in this often overlooked corner of the country.
Rated as one of the world's top 10 most adventurous cruises by CNN, our Brahmaputra cruises offer these once-in-a-lifetime encounters and experiences between October and April. Named after the Assam Despatch service, the daily mail and passenger service that once plied from Kolkata up the Brahmaputra to Dibrugarh, we offer a series of 4- to 10-night cruises which can also be combined to create itineraries up to 14 nights.
Private exploration of the Brahmaputra river
For those interested in private exploration of the Brahmaputra, we offer you M.V. Rudra Singha, as featured on Channel 4 UK's Great Canal Journeys.
This new, tastefully appointed houseboat is ideal for a couple or a small family with up to two children. Charting itineraries that are deliberately leisurely, it allows guests to absorb the beauty of the river and its people at their own pace.
The houseboat is owned by lahé life and brought to you by Assam Bengal Navigation.
