Ultimate Destinations is delighted to introduce this remarkable escorted journey of exploration through Assam in Northeast India from 5 – 16 November 2015. For more details contact us on 01923 284148 or email us at email@example.com.
Organised by Prestige Holidays, it starts with two nights in Kolkata in West Bengal. A seven night journey then follows, taking you along the mighty Brahmaputra River as it meanders through little visited Assam, south of the eastern Himalayas. A land of rolling blue hills and dense forests that is renowned for its tea, flora and fauna.
Meet local tribal people who have little or no contact with the outside world, explore ancient tantric temples, Hindu monasteries and tea plantations. You may also catch sight of the highly endangered Ganges Dolphin. Enjoy the peace and quiet of drifting down this most amazing waterway – the second largest river in the world.
The highlight of this river cruise is an elephant safari through Kaziranga National Park, a World Heritage Site and a sanctuary for India’s ‘Big Five’ – tigers, elephants, rhino, swamp deer and buffalo as well as a huge diversity of birdlife. Kaziranga has the distinction of being one of the very few places in the world that contains breeding populations of three big cats outside Africa, the Royal Bengal Tiger, Indian Leopard and Clouded Leopard. The memories of this truly unique experience will live with you forever. For more details click here.
