M.V. Mahabaahu - The Luxury Cruiseline


A 23-cabin luxury cruise that takes you on an exquisite tour over the waters of the mighty Brahmaputra, one of the longest rivers in Asia, offering an incredible wildlife experience, lessons in the art of tea-picking and the opportunity to watch monks dance in tribute to Lord Vishnu at one of the largest river islands in the area and visit villages inhabited by Mishing tribesmen. On a clear day, guests can enjoy a view of the 6,500 metre-high snow-covered Himalayan mountains from the river. That is the essence of this cruise — delivering tranquillity and an adrenaline rush in equal measures.
