Brahmaputra River Cruise with Darjeeling          

Great Variety

A little off the beaten track but West Bengal and Assam were wonderful varied destinations, Kolkata was vibrant and steeped in colonial history and the Grand Oberoi a superb hotel to return to at the end of the day, we had 2 extra days there, I'd recommend at least one extra, it's a big city with lots to see. Darjeeling and Kalimpong a different world of tea plantations, toy trains and spectacular views of the Himalayas. The Windamere is an attraction on its own, coal fires in the bedroom and hot water bottles at night and a 1930's dining room serving excellent Indian food. By contrast the Brahmaputra wound languidly across the plains of Assam, some would describe the landscape as featureless but the scale and light made it hypnotically beautiful from the top deck of the lovely MV Mahabaahu. The riverboat was spacious and comfortable with lovely cabins and a crew who literally could not do enough. The daytrips were excellent with the highlight being the magnificent rhino at Kaziranga, an unforgettable experience. All in all a really excellent varied trip to a little visited part of India.

Unique experience

Thank you to all the wonderful people, seen and unseen, who have contributed to this unique experience. We will never forget this week. May MV Mahabaahu achieve the recognition and success it so richly deserves.
