EXPLORE THE BRAHMAPUTRA RIVER

THE BRAHMAPUTRA

7 NIGHTS

The mighty Brahmaputra river in Northern India originates high in the Himalayas before flowing through the scenic Assam Valley where UNESCO protected national parks and remote rural communities provide the traveller with the most wonderful and authentic expedition. We are pleased to operate this new program with safaris in search of the Greater One-Horned Indian Rhinoceros and Indian tiger. With fascinating visits to ‘Mishing’ people who live on the world’s largest river island, tea plantations and many exotic Satras to explore, your Assam adventure will leave lifetime-lasting memories.

Please note our Brahmaputra programme will start in October 2020.
