The River Wild

The vast, perilous Brahmaputra was thought virtually unnavigable - but a brave new boat journey has just opened up Assam's remote, wildlife-rich culturally unique river banks.

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 Villages that can be reached only by boat were betrayed by smears of smoke, their houses withdrawn in the bush....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.

L’India del Brahmaputra

L’India del Brahmaputra

In Assam, nel Nord-Est dell’India, 12 regioni – dette anche le dodici sorelle – sono bagnate dalle acque sacre del figlio di Brahma, che le attraversa con un percorso mai uguale, cambiandone i confini di continuo prima di entrare in Bangladesh, per poi congiungersi al Gange e sfociare nel Bengala. Il Brahmaputra nasce 60 miglia a Sud-Est del Monte Kailash, in Tibet: con i suoi 4mila metri di altitudine è il più alto fiume del mondo. Il suo percorso iniziale è tortuoso: si snoda dal Tibet occidentale verso Est separando la catena dell’Himalaya dal deserto, compie una serpentina ad alta quota per poi precipitare con maestose cascate nella più profonda valle del mondo: la Tsangpo Gorge (5.030 metri).

Secondo la leggenda tibetana, la sorgente che origina dai ghiacci del Kailash sgorga dalla celestiale bocca di un cavallo, il suo fondo sabbioso è composto da occhi di gatto e smeraldi e chi beve da quella fonte diventa forte come i cavalli.
