MV Mahabaahu looks more like an ocean vessel than one that travels along the river. Its shape is very different from any of the European river ships you may be familiar with, but it is perfectly designed to traverse India’s Brahmaputra River. Guests can discover the wonders of this beautiful country’s Assam region. Along the way, you will see intricate, handcrafted items being made, witness the process of preparing tea for commercial use and hopefully spot India’s ‘big four’ wild animals - the single-horned rhino, elephant, buffalo and tiger.
The ship itself is a luxurious home from home. They are many areas to relax and you will never feel overcrowded with a capacity of just 46 passengers. The spa area includes a massage room and sauna to help you unwind and there’s the opportunity to take part in morning yoga sessions. The swimming pool, found at the aft of the ship, is also a great area in which to take it easy whilst the ship guides you to your next destination.
The Mungri Mungram restaurant is air-conditioned and will provide you with some of the vibrant and exotic flavours of India. The chefs also hold cooking demonstrations during the day during which you can watch them prepare some of the dishes and ask any questions. When you are not relaxing or sampling the delicious food on offer, a smaller boat will transport you to the shore for a host of exciting excursions.
Gratuities are at your discretion.
