The Brahmaputra River meanders across a prime stretch of the state of Assam and is one of the longest male rivers around the globe. The profuse greenery and serene atmosphere surrounding the river adorns most part of the state. The crimson sunsets upon this captivating river are a sight to behold. The river is also considered to be a prime habitat of the Gangetic Dolphin which is now amongst the endangered species in the world.
For many years, the river cruises and ferries have been the classic river adventure for those willing to witness the grandeur of Brahmaputra. These cruises offer a wonderful spectrum of the mighty river along with the ethereal beauty of the sunset on the crimson sky. People normally come here to wind up their day, escape the hustle bustle and set sail on a cruise down the Brahmaputra to enjoy the serene sunset. Delicious dining service is also available on the cruise to enjoy as they glide past some of the most spectacular views. But if you’re after a bite-sized taste of the river experience, a trip to the peacock island, situated in the middle of the river, is your best deal. You can also pay a visit to the beautiful Umananda Temple, perched on this river island.
No to mention, the Brahmaputra bank becomes a crowd magnet during the River Festivals as it transforms into a hotbed of art installations, theatrical performances, flea markets, ethnic food stalls and music. The best time to visit is during the Kite Festival and Namami Brahmaputra Festival inaugurated last year, also saw many prominent faces gracing the occasion including the Dalai Lama.
