Discover iconic wildlife, natural beauty and cultural heritage on a cruise along the Brahmaputra River

Delhi, Kaziranga, Brahmaputra River

Your journey at a glance

This 11-day Small Group Journey ventures off-the-beaten-track on a life-changing river cruise in Assam, mystical land of blue hills, tea fields, exotic wildlife and architectural masterpieces; while promising signature experiences and exclusive adventures that are guided by specialist guides and naturalists.

Your journey begins briefly in Delhi, one of the oldest inhabited cities in the world with a history dating back over 3000 years. Explore Kaziranga National Park, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, and one of Asia’s greatest wilderness areas. Home to some of the finest wildlife viewing in Asia, everything seems larger than life here. Finally, spend a week cruising down the waterways of the Brahmaputra River and discover untouched, remote areas that remain hidden from the crowds. Encounter houses of worship, venerable temples, vast farming areas, rice paddies, and tribal and riverside villages that dot the banks. Learn the art of tea production at local tea gardens, visit the river island of Majuli where inhabitants live a devout way of life, and follow the peaceful Hindu practice of neo-Vaishnavism. To end, explore Sibsagar, once the capital of the Ahom kings of Assam in the 18th century, now a bustling agricultural and administrative town.
