Cruising aboard the Mahabaahu allows you to truly appreciate the stunning landscapes, exotic wildlife and friendly people found along the mighty Brahmaputra River, with a variety of guided excursions offered each day.

When not out enjoying a shore excursion, guests can relax in the small spa, by the pool or in the Jacuzzi. The sun deck, with its comfortable loungers, also makes a great place to sit back as you take in the sights and sounds of the river. Tastefully decorated throughout, the boat has a laid-back and welcoming atmosphere.

In the evenings, guests can enjoy local tribal dance performances and listen to guest lectures, enabling them to truly immerse themselves in the local culture and learn more about this colorful region.
