Indien - Ein Land der kulturellen Vielfalt, Natur, Abenteuer und Überraschungen

Reisende die zum ersten Mal nach Indien wollen sind erstaunt über den hohen, oft doppelten, bürokratischen Aufwand der zu überwinden ist um in das Land zu kommen. Schon der Versuch das erforderliche Visa zu bekommen ist ein Hindernislauf, den viele nach einigen Fehlversuchen aufgeben, meist geht es ohne fremde Hilfe nicht.

In den Flughäfen des Landes erfolgen alle 3-5 Meter erneute Kontrollen, alles natürlich zur eigenen Sicherheit, die meist freundlich durchgeführt werden, aber uns Europäer nervig vorkommen.

Abenteuer Assam – abwechslungsreiche Flusskreuzfahrt auf dem Brahmaputra

Lautlos schiebt die Kulisse sich vorbei, während ich an Deck meines Kreuzfahrschiffes die scheinbar leeren Sandbänke links und rechts der Ufer nach Leben absuche. Der Brahmaputra ist zu dieser Jahreszeit friedlich. Entspannung breitet sich aus nach dem langen Weg den die Reisenden zurückgelegt haben, um in diesen entlegenen Winkel der Welt zu gelangen um Ruhe und Erholung in einer völlig anderen Welt zu finden...

Tiger, tiger... and many more surprises as we float along

Tiger, tiger... and many more surprises as we float along

CRUISING quietly on the Brahmaputra River in India is not where you might expect to sight your first tiger. I’d been to tiger camps before but sadly all I ever saw was evidence of where they’d been: claw scratch marks on trees, scats and even paw prints on dusty roads.

But while cruising the eastern edge of Kaziranga National Park in north-east India, the alert goes out: “Tiger!”.

All eyes onboard scan the tall elephant grass atop the sandy riverbank. The fabulous feline face resembles a mask like Tony the Tiger of cerealpack fame....

Auf dem Brahmaputra Tempel, Tee und wilde Tiere

Auf dem Brahmaputra Tempel, Tee und wilde Tiere

Eine Kreuzfahrt auf dem Brahmaputra zeigt Indien von einer ruhigen, ländlichen Seite – und das auf komfortable und stressfreie Art.

Braungrünes Wasser, graue Sandbänke, im Dunst versinkende Waldstreifen, ab und zu ein beladener Kahn, einige Hütten, winkende Kinder, Wasserbüffel, springende Flussdelphine, Raubvögel am Himmel: Dieses Bild begleitet uns während der gesamten, 374 Kilometer langen Fahrt auf dem Brahmaputra. In einem grossen Bogen vom Himalaja herkommend, durchquert der mächtige Strom den von Landwirtschafts- und Dschungelgebieten geprägten Gliedstaat Assam wie ein riesiger fliessender See. Der internationale Tourismus hat die Gegend im äussersten Nordosten Indiens noch kaum entdeckt – trotz einmaligen Sehenswürdigkeiten wie der weltgrössten Population an Panzernashörnern und weltbekannten Erzeugnissen wie dem Assam-Tee und der «goldenen» Muga-Seide...

Ten places you'd never expect to visit on a cruise

Ten places you'd never expect to visit on a cruise

1. Along the Sepik River: Papua New Guinea

My first sight of the Sepik was from the air. It looped across the land in great festive bows. Around it, glinting in silvery puddles, were strewn dozens of oxbow lakes, bends the river has discarded. New Guinea, after Greenland the second-largest island in the world, is in Oceania, where the Coral Sea meets the South Pacific. The river is on one of the farthest-flung frontiers of travel. In my days on it I met one backpacker.

With most of PNG’s attractions close to the coast and, for visitors at any rate, the interior largely inaccessible, easily the most practical way of seeing the country and its islands is by ship. Those that visit tend to be small expedition ships carrying specialist teams who lead forays ashore in Zodiac inflatables. On one sortie to Ambunti, baggy clouds the size of small countries ringed the horizon. Around us stretched a great green panorama of riverand reed. Engine buzzing, we skimmed across water as flat and polished as marble. Villages that can be reached only by boat were betrayed by smears of smoke, their houses withdrawn in the bush....

Assam: Extraordinary little-known travel destination in India

Assam: Extraordinary little-known travel destination in India

(eTN) - Assam is a little-known Indian destination full of charm and attractions. Starting from the Brahmaputra River running through it, the area is defined by origin, size and the course of this mighty river.

Among the emerging tourist destinations, Assam - the largest of the states of northeast India - is emerging on the world map as a true travel destination thanks to its rich history, art, culture, nature and the innate reception propensity of its inhabitants.

The Brahmaputra River stands out above all the major attractions in Assam for its irrepressible force, and for being a generator of life and death.

In the countries crossed by the Brahmaputra - Tibet, India, and Bangladesh – the river is named: Tsangpo, Brah, and Jammu - three names, three countries, three religions, only one river. It is a mythological source hidden among the glaciers of one of the most sacred parts of the world....

The Brahmaputra River, one of the greatest river cruise of the world

The Brahmaputra River, one of the greatest river cruise of the world

This is the world’s only cruise that navigates under the shadows of over 6500 meter high snow covered Himalayan peaks, seen clearly in good weather. It is also the only other river apart from the Zambezi River in Africa from which you can do boat, jeep and elephant safaris. You see the largest population of Rhinos in the world, which are the Single Horned Indian Rhinos, the Asian Elephants, Wild Buffaloes and on a lucky day the Royal Bengal Tigers. You also see the Fresh Water Gangetic Dolphins, the only ape of South Asia, the Hollock Gibbons and over 400 species of birds including the very large sized birds like the Great Hornbills, Pelicans, Black Necked Storks and Greater Adjutant Storks. 

However, apart from nature and natural history the cruise also offers an education on tea with visit to tea plantations and factories, visit to weaver’s and tribal villages, temples, palaces and monasteries. You witness three different dance forms of the region and a great Living History.

Brahmaputra river cruise: afloat in the shadow of the Himalayas

Brahmaputra river cruise: afloat in the shadow of the Himalayas

The baby elephant that had been trailing its mother since the start of our safari began squealing, panic in its tone. Mum – on whose back I was riding – responded with loud trumpeting and headed into the long elephant grass after her baby.

“Tiger,” murmured the mahout.

I was on a river-cruise safari excursion to the Kaziranga National Park, a World Heritage Site in the floodplains that flank the banks of the Brahmaputra. The most prized inhabitant of Kaziranga is the greater one-horned Indian rhinoceros, but the park is home to as many as 180 different mammals, including wild elephants, deer, bison and tiger. At the mention of the word, mild panic ensued. Excited at the thought of seeing the big cat so close, I wasn’t entirely sure I wanted to do so while on the back of a mother elephant intent on protecting her baby.
