Assam Bengal Navigation is a two boat party offering wilderness cruises along the vast Brahmaputra River.
The boats, ABN Charaidew and ABN Sukapha, are fairly similar in design and are both comprised of 12 cabins - ten with twin beds and two doubles, each with en-suite shower and loo. All of the cabin accommodation is on the upper deck, and there is a well stocked bar and sitting room opening onto the front deck.
The dining room is on the lower deck, and the food is a mixture of Assamese (milder than most Indian cuisine) and international, and is of a very high standard. The boats also have a large sundeck with seating in the shade or sun, perfect for catching the rays and taking in the views.
Travelling by river boat is a great way to see the spectacular landscape and wildlife of Eastern India.
