Assam is a heaven on Earth, with its majestic hills, the mighty Brahmaputra River, exciting wildlife, and lush flora and fauna. Nothing beats sailing along the famous destinations of North Eastern India on the M.V. Mahabaahu Cruise. The 8-night, 9-day tour includes visits to the famous temple, wildlife sanctuary, tea estates, and other attractions. Take in glimpses of Northeast India’s cultural ethos.

Brahmaputra River Cruise is a cruise ride on the mighty Brahmaputra River in Guwahati, Assam, located 2 kilometers from Guwahati Railway Station. It is a major attraction and one of the most popular things to do in Guwahati.

The Brahmaputra River, one of the world’s great rivers, flows for 1800 miles from its headwaters in the Tibetan Himalayas to its delta in the Bay of Bengal. It is one of the navigable rivers that allow for cruises. Guwahati’s lifeline is the mighty Brahmaputra, which divides the city in two. The most appealing aspect of Brahmaputra for both tourists and locals is the surreal boat cruises on its glistening waters.

You can choose from a variety of short cruise rounds, such as a Lunch Cruise, Sunset Cruise, Dinner Cruise, Candlelight Cruise, and so on. This one-hour cruise is a miniature cruise and a fantastic experience, complete with a cool breeze on the deck, live music, delicious food, serene views, and a brief narration of the history and mythology of this section of the mighty Brahmaputra River. Evening cruise on the Brahmaputra is a popular sightseeing activity in Guwahati because of the breathtaking sunset views. The cruise is a compact cultural extravaganza of Assam, offering live music and dance as well as delicious food. It is one of the most enjoyable places to visit with friends and family. The Dinner Cruise lasts approximately 2 hours and includes a welcome drink, snacks, and dinner.

Assam Tourism and private operators both offer cruises on the Brahmaputra River. Though there are many private ferry services from Pan Bazar jetty that will take you on a short cruise around the Brahmaputra. In 1998, Alfresco Cruises was the first to launch the floating cum cruise restaurant ‘Alfresco’ on the Brahmaputra River. There are also cruise trips on the Brahmaputra River that last 4 to 10 days. Some cruises visit the World Heritage Sites of Kaziranga and Nameri, as well as Majuli, one of the world’s largest riverine islands, and Guwahati.

    Things to keep in mind before selecting a destination

    When a traveler's mind desires to visit the beaches, mountains, or a forest, there is nothing to say. However, understanding how to plan a trip successfully requires selecting the appropriate destination based on the season.

    Find out when is the best time to visit each destination. The best time to visit beaches and mountains is usually different. When choosing a destination, keep the cost in mind. Some locations are more enjoyable to visit on a luxury budget than others. Going to a luxury destination during the shoulder season (a few weeks before or after the official 'busy season') can result in some good hotel and flight discounts.

    People should prioritise traveller safety before embarking on their journey (especially solo female travelers).

    Accessibility, or lack thereof, is another factor that can influence whether or not a person chooses to visit a particular location. To support the tourist influx, popular destinations generally have a large number of daily flights, trains, and good highway infrastructure.
