DETAIL TOUR PLAN:
Day 01:ArrivalDibrugarh airportReceived by our representatives at the Jorhat/ Dibrugarh Airport before noon. Drive to Neemati Ghat to embark the vessel
Day 02:After morning breakfast we will drive to the Gibbon Sanctuary at Mariani. Here we will walk through the forest in the company of a local forest guard in search of Hoolock Gibbons, India’s only species of ape, as well as a wealth of birdlife. On our return to the vessel we will set off down the river, cruising for about an hour or so across to Majuli Island, the world’s largest river island. The island offers excellent birdwatching, due to the number of wetlands which gives us a fine introduction to Assam’s wetland birds.
Day 03: Majuli the largest human inhabited island in the world & also the cradle of Assamese Culture. The religious and cultural traditions are kept alive by the dedicated monks living in the monasteries locally known as Sattra. The whole island is now shortlisted for UNESCO World Heritage Status. We will visit a few prominent monasteries in the island, take a glimpse at the simple ways of life of the monks, interact with them, visit the prayer halls and see the unique artifacts
Day 04: We will spend much of the day on the river today, watching waterbirds and for otters and Gangetic River Dolphins, not to mention the fascinating activities and techniques of the local fishermen. Our one riverside stop will be at the tribal village, where we will make an interesting visit. By the afternoon, Kaziranga National Park will be on our left, and wild Asian Elephants and other mammals such as Hog Deer and wild Water Buffalo may sometimes be seen from the boat. The evening, as the sun sets on the river and when a beer is safely at hand, will be the ideal time to meticulously scan the river banks and islands for mammals and birds.
Day 05:In the early morning, we will take a jeep ride through the park’s little-visited Eastern Range, where good woodland and grassland, and the wildlife they support, can be viewed from look-out towers. Kaziranga protects an area of 430 square kilometres and is one of the world’s most beautiful national parks. This afternoon we will continue our voyage down to a delightful mooring at Silghat, where butterflies abound in the surrounding jungle. Close by, where the Bharali River flows into the Brahmaputra, is a favourite feeding spot for the endangered Gangetic River Dolphins (although these can be seen anywhere on the river, and throughout the length of our river journey). At Silghat we will moor and next day enjoy our safari in central range of the Kaziranga National Park.
Day 06: We will rise very early this morning and disembark before dawn in order to drive to Kaziranga’s Central Range for an early morning elephant ride, the best way to get really close to the rhinos and all of Kaziranga’s other mammals. Later in the morning, after our breakfast in a beautiful lodge, we will return to Kaziranga’s Central Range for a morning jeep safari before returning to the boat.
Day 07: This morning transfer to guwahati and we will pay a visit to Nilachal Hill, high above Guwahati, where a good selection of birds may be found in the woodland surrounding the Kamakhya Temple. After temple visit transfer to Airport for further Journey.
