Pandaw has announced its new eight-day Brahmaputra River programme on board MV Mahabaahu. The itineraries will commence in March 2015, offering Pandaw guests an off-the-beaten track, luxury exploration of the Assam region in the north-east of India.
The Brahmaputra River is the only navigable river in the world from which the 6,500 metre high, snow covered Himalaya mountains can be seen. It is also the only river, apart from the Zambezi River in Africa, where elephant, jeep and boat safaris are found together. Guests will experience the rich living culture of the Assam region with visits to temples, tribal villages, monasteries, ancient palaces and tea estates.
In addition to the cruise, Pandaw also offers pre and post stays in luxury five-star hotels in Delhi and Kol-kata, including domestic connecting flights.
