Ganges cruises can be taken separately or together to offer a choice of durations from three to 15 nights (by combining two itineraries). Ganges and Lower Ganges (Hooghly) cruises are all about visits to villages, towns, temples and monuments in a little-known but fascinating and culturally rich part of India, on foot, by cycle rickshaw or minibus.
Cruises on the Lower Ganges operate all year round, while the Ganges proper cruises operate in the winter months only.
During months of August and September, when water level is high the Ganges Cruise operates up to Varanasi.

With fascinating visits to ‘Mishing’ people who live on the world’s largest river island, tea plantations and many exotic Satras to explore, your Assam adventure will leave lifetime-lasting memories.
