M.V. Mahabaahu, Brahmaputra River Cruise

EXPLORE ONE OF THE HOLIEST RIVERS OF THE WORLD! The Brahmaputra River (named as the Son of the Creator of the Cosmos, in Hindu mythology) is the only river of the world revered by Hindus, Buddhists, Jains and Bonpos, amounting to four religions! Cruise on the  prestigious M.V. Mahabaahu for an “Experiential Journey” on one of the  fastest flowing rivers in the world.

The Brahmaputra flows through Assam under the shadows of the spectacular eastern Himalayas where mountains reach a height of over 24,000 feet. The area along the river is a true natural history paradise. In the four national parks, you will find over 850 species of wildlife including a large variety of birds, fresh water dolphins, elephants, wild buffalo and the vulnerable one-horned rhino.

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, carrying a tradition of over 5,000 years. The architecture of the temples of Assam, built in traditional Indian and Thai style, showcases the artistic talents of the local people.

With a 2 to 1 crew-to-passenger ratio and classical Assamese golden Muga silk decor, the M.V. Mahabaahu is the ship of choice for cruising through N.E. India’s brilliant green paradise.

Kerala Backwater River Cruise

WELCOME TO GOD’S OWN COUNTRY, KERALA! In Southern India, there cannot be a better way to experience the immensely rich culture of Kerala than to meander through its lush backwater canals on board one of our two comfortable and charming houseboats, theSauver Nigam (2 cabins) and Vaikundam (9 cabins). The traditional style Vaikundam is one of the largest plying the backwaters and ideal for group travel with spacious cabins and is furnished with antique and modern accessories. The  Sauver Nigam offers a more intimate and very comfortable experience without  detracting from the authentic feel of a traditional rice barge. It is a perfect match for your family or a few friends. The Kerala Ministry of Tourism rated these houseboats as the first eco-friendly boats in the backwaters. They were given the Golden Palm Award.

The experience on-board is well summed up by the former Prime Minister of India, Shri Atal Behari Vajpayee in his comment “A Day to be Remembered”.
