Brahmaputra

BEST FOR...
Culture and local life
 

One of the world's great but little visited rivers, the Brahmaputra runs for 1800 miles from its source in the Tibetan Himalaya to its delta in the Bay of Bengal. There is plenty of interest here, from wonderful wildlife to diverse cultures, from bird watchers to the cultural traveller interested in Buddhist archaeology, Hindu temples, Islamic architecture or neo-classical colonial palaces. There are a number of national parks within striking distance of the river, such as the World Heritage Site at Kaziranga, where the world’s largest population of rhino live. Now is a great time to visit before 21st century tourism takes over in this remote region.

The river is prone to catastrophic flooding in spring when the Himalayan snows melt. It is also one of the few rivers in the world that with a tidal bore. In Bangladesh the river merges with the Ganga and splits into two the Hugli and Padma River. When Brahmaputra river merges with the Ganges and Meghna rivers it form the largest river delta in the world (60,000km2).The plains watered by the stream of Brahmaputra yield abundant crops of rice, jute, and mustard, making the Brahmaputra an important source of irrigation and navigation.

Brahmaputra cruises feature attractions such as wildlife viewing (both by jeep and on elephant back), village walks, visits to tea gardens, exploring country towns in cycle rickshaws, barbecues on deserted river islands, dance performances, and visits to craft workshops.
