Brahmaputra cruises feature visits and attractions such as wildlife viewing (both by jeep and on elephant back), village walks, visits to tea gardens, exploring country towns in cycle rickshaws, barbecues on deserted river islands, dance performances, and visits to craft workshops.


Between October and April, we offer a series of 8-day, 11-day and 5-day cruises, named after the Assam Despatch service, the daily mail and passenger service that once plied from Kolkata up the Brahmaputra to Dibrugarh. Cruises can be combined to create itineraries up to 15 days.

Our Brahmaputra cruises were rated among the world's top 10 most adventurous cruises by the CNN.

What is there to see

The upper limit of navigation on the Brahmaputra, Dibrugarh is an army town that was the end of the Stilwell Road built to link India to China in World War II. From airfields in this area also operated the great supply operation over The Hump to China.

The old capital of the Kingdom of Assam, The Kings, of Thai stock, were converts to Hinduism, and their substantial remaining places and temples are an amalgam of Indian and S.E. Asian styles. The tank besides which the main temple stands is said to be the world's largest man - excavated reservoir.

A vast river island in the Brahmaputra, on which are a number of unique Vaishnavite Hindu monasteries, famous for performances of religious dance-drama.

One of the two centres of the Assam tea industry, surrounded by tea estates. Close to here, the Tea Research Institute makes a fascinating visit.

A World Heritage site and right on the river, Kaziranga National park holds most of India's One-Horned Rhinoceros as well as elephant, tiger, wild buffalo, sambar, swamp deer, hog deer and many other species. Viewing is both by jeep and on elephant back.

Another tea centre, and the access point to Nameri National Park in the foothills. Orang National Park is on the river banks downstream from here.

The state capital. Offshore lies Peacock Island with its temple, while on a hill above the town, Tantric rites are practised at the Kamakhya Temple. There's a good museum and a poignant War cementery. Guwahati is the starting point for etensions to Shillong, the "Scotland of the East", which can be arrange before or after cruises, or to bridge the changeover day gap when two successive cruises are booked.
