Cruise Packages At Brahmaputra River, Assam

Assam - It is a state of India in the northeastern region located in the south of eastern Himalayas. Assam comprises the Brahmaputra valley and Barak river valleys.  Rain feeds the Brahmaputra river whose tributaries and oxbow lakes provide the region with a hydrogeomorphic and aesthetic environment.  Assam tea is produced here along with petroleum and Assam silk. The state has conserved the one-horned Indian rhinoceros from near extinction along with the pygmy hog, tiger, and various species of birds. It provides one of the best wild habitats for Asian elephants.
