Assam Bengal Navigation
This pioneering company has created a
wonderful way to explore the remote regions of Assam and
Bengal. The ABN Charaidew - is a 12-cabin boat, which
navigates the mighty River Brahmaputra, Assam and the ABN Sukapha
cruises up the Hooghly River, a tributary of the Ganges.
Operating between October - April you
can choose from a range of cruises from 4 night to 14 night
cruises. The Assam cruises take in wildlife experiences, tea
plantation visits, local dance performances, village walks and
picnics on deserted islands. Whereas the Ganges and Hugli
cruises upstream from Kolkata are all about visits to villages,
towns, temples and monuments in a little-known but fascinating part
of India, on foot, by cycle rickshaw or minibus.
India River Cruises will soon be
adding a third boat ABN Rajmahal their portfolio in February 2014.
ABN Rajmahal is currently under construction and will be offering a
new route from Calcutta to Varanasi via the Hughly and Ganges
rivers. This is the first ever river cruise to offer such a
service. The boat will comprise 22 cabins, each comfortably
appointed with bathrooms and French balconies; a comfortable Saloon
and Bar, Dining Room and vast canopied sun deck. Guests can indulge
in wellness treatments at the Spa.
