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.
