Christmas Charter Cruise on Brahmaputra on ABN Sukapha

India is blessed with mighty rivers like the Ganga, Brahmaputra, Indus, Narmada and Cauvery which run for hundreds of kilometers through several states and entire civilizations are built along these rivers. In India, the mighty Brahmaputra river flows for 900 kms, out of which 650 kms is within the state of Assam. The Brahmaputra river valley is not only blessed with abundant forest cover, but also a unique culture that’s rooted in a simple, agrarian, self-sufficient way of life for the Assamese people.
