Detail Itinerary

DAY 1 (FRIDAY):

Arrive Guwahati Airport, Drive to Silghat, MV Mahabaahu Sails downstream,
Assamese Theme Evening

We fly in to Guwahati by 0800 hrs where the MV Mahabaahu representatives receive us and we drive away to Silghat to board MV Mahabaahu. The 4hour drive through the green meandering views of Assam is an opportunity to understand the cultural aspect of the region.

We are welcomed and ushered in to our cabins and soon after we enjoy lunch on board as MV Mahabaahu sails on towards the Bangla village. This afternoon we enjoy cruising on the mighty Brahmaputra and pass by village folk who wave from their very own islands.

After a relaxed and leisurely Afternoon we enjoy the evening tea and snacks.

This evening we enjoy an Assamese theme evening; Assamese freshly caught fried fish—Assamese tribal style for snacks (for vegetarians there are several delicious snacks), Assami Mekhla Chaadar and Dhoti Kurta with Ahomia music and Ahomia dance moves and to top it all an Assamese Dinner Menu.

We are briefed on the program for the following day once again.

This evening we can lounge and spend some quality time with friends and family.

Overnight on board M.V. Mahabaahu (L, D)

DAY 2 (SATURDAY):

A Bangla Village Visit

This is a very relaxed morning. You can sleep in or be on the top deck to experience a session of Yog and enjoy a peep into the traditional wisdom of the gurus from ancient times.

A laid-back relaxed breakfast from 0800 to 1000 hrs, a talk on Kamakhya temple and an orientation on the Bangla Village and Kamakhya.

We interact with the village folk and try to understand the simple and satisfied subsistence life styles. These folks who live off the Brahmaputra river, both for farming and fishing make a choice of living on fertile unclaimed sand bars. They understand that they can enjoy the privilege of owning large expanse of land only till the river decides to remain benevolent. The river claims their land during the monsoon and they must return to their haven on mainland or create one. The river starts receding from October to mid-Feb and slowly the snow-melt in the Himalayas starts creating volume and an indication to get ready. April showers add to the water levels.

We return to the ship for lunch and enjoy some leisurely hours reading a book or indulging in a steam, Sauna, Jacuzzi or an Ayurvedic Massage or any other beauty treatment. You can enjoy a dip in the swimming pool or be on the sun deck to enjoy the river in its process of devouring or adding to the sand of the sand bars.

We visit Peacock Island (if daylight hours permit) and then sail towards the Saraighat Bridge We raise a toast to the River Brahmaputra and Goddess Kamakhya for giving us a safe passage.

Enjoy a relaxed dinner on MV Mahabaahu. After dinner we spend some time in the lounge and retire for the evening.

Overnight on board M.V. Mahabaahu (B, L, D)

DAY 3 (SUNDAY):

Kamakhya Temple Visit and Airport/Hotel Transfer

This morning we are docked at Pandu in Guwahati. We enjoy breakfast on the ship and deboard at 0900 hrs. We get into our cars and drive to the famous Shakti Peeth of Kamakhya Devi, the Goddess of Desire. This temple is located on Top of Nilachal hill.

Post the temple visit we drive to the Guwahati Airport with countless memories of Assam.
