Description

DAY 01: ARRIVE IN KOLKATA
  • Upon arrival at Delhi airport you will be met by our representative. You will be transferred to the hotel by private vehicle. Check- in at the hotel. Overnight at the hotel in Delhi.
 
DAY 02: KOLKATA
  • Located on the east bank of the Hooghly River, it is the principal commercial, cultural, and educational centre of East India, while the Port of Kolkata is India's oldest operating port and its sole major riverine port. Locally, Kolkata is regarded as India’s intellectual, artistic and cultural capital. As the former capital of British India, Kolkata retains a feast of colonial-era architecture.
  • Day is free to explore on your own.
  • Overnight stay at the hotel.
 
DAY 03: KOLKATA
  • In morning after breakfast proceed for the tour of this amazing city. Start with a Heritage Tour through Dalhousie Square now known as Benoy-Badal-Dinesh Bagh, is an oasis at the heart of modern Kolkata, formerly Calcutta, in eastern India. Occupying an area of over two square kilometers, the plaza is ringed by historic architecture and contains the Lal Dighi, or “Red Tank,” a body of water that reflects the buildings above. B.B.D is the seat of power of the state government, as well as the central business district in Kolkata in the Indian state of West Bengal.
  • After that visit The Black Hole of Calcutta - It was a small prison/dungeon in Fort William in Calcutta, India where troops of Siraj ud-Daulah, the Nawab of Bengal, held British prisoners of war after the Bengali army captured the fort on 20 June 1756. The monument was originally erected by Lord Curzon in 1901 in the original site of the Black Hole within Fort William, but was eventually moved to the St John's Church grounds in 1940.
  • Head up to see the Writer’s Building - This originally served as the office for writers of the British East India Company and now it’s the secretariat building of the State Government of West Bengal in India.
  • This evening enjoy a cruise on the River Hooghly to watch the city fade into the night.
  • Overnight stay at the hotel in Kolkata.
 
DAY 04: KOLKATA – GUWAHATI
  • Morning after breakfast check out from the hotel and transfer to the hotel to board your flight to Guwahati.
  • On arrival proceed for the day tour of Guwahati. Drive up Nilachal Hill to see the holy Kamakhya temple. According to Hindu legend, when an enraged Shiva divided his deceased wife Sati’s body into 108 pieces and scattered them across the land, her yoni (vagina) fell on Kamakhya Hill. This makes Kamakhya Mandir one of the most hallowed shrines for practitioners of shakti (tantric worship of female spiritual power).
  • Step aboard your cruise vessel to start your river journey through India.
 
DAY 05: KHIRAKATA
  • Today you will be cruising up the Brahmaputra River, with plenty of time to admire the magnificent surroundings. On both sides of the river you will notice dense jungle terrain and magnificent hills. Listen for the sound of wildlife and birdsong coming from the trees.
  • We can also visit the north bank village of Khirakata, with its lush green fields of vegetables and corn.
 
DAY 06: TULLUGAON
  • Today you will emerge from hill country, and cruise through jungle terrain, with huge sand banks looming on either side of the river making for an impressive sight.
  • We visit Tullugaon, another bankside village with large sugarcane plantations. You can see sugarcane plantation and weavers at work in their homes, as well as the production of jaggary out of sugarcane juice.
 
DAY 07: TEZPUR
  • We cruise on to reach Tezpur. Tezpur is a charming town with some beautifully kept parks, attractive lakes and enchanting views of the mighty Brahmaputra River as it laps the town’s edge.
  • Explore the town by cycle rickshaw. Tezpur is known for Agnigarh, which is a sacred Hindu park.
  • Reboard the cruise.
 
DAY 08: NAMERI NATIONAL PARK
  • After having breakfast deboard the cruise and step onto land and drive to Nameri National Park.
  • Explore the park, which is home to a vast number of beautiful butterflies; this region of India is known to house over half of the world’s known species of butterfly. Nameri is also home to a variety of mammals, reptiles and birds. Here you could spot tigers, leopards, cobras, bison, vultures and hundreds more species of wildlife.
  • Take a boat trip of around two hours through the park, and keep an eye out – you might even be lucky enough to spot elephants strolling through the forest.
 
DAY 09: KAZIRANGA NATIONAL PARK
  • Continue your cruise until your reach Steemer Ghat, a lovely beach backed by jungle-covered hills. Drive to Kaziranga National Park, enjoy jeep safari and climb to the top of the park’s observation tower to survey the vast expanse of this World Heritage site.
 
DAY 10: KAZIRANGA NATIONAL PARK
  • Early morning deboard the cruise and drive to Kaziranga’s Central Range for an early morning elephant ride, the best way to get really close to the rhino and other animals.
  • Visit a local tea plantation to learn how tea is processed and picked. You can also take another safari ride through Kaziranga to spot some more of the park’s fascinating inhabitants.
 
DAY 11: GUWAHATI – KOLKATA – DEPART
