This a very big river in assam. It flows through entire assam, through Kaziranga and Guwahati. Definitely worth a cruise on it. The river at times is very broad and full of life.

The other side trips we took was a boat ride on the Brahmaputra, which was nice, but not much to see in late March, mid-day. Could have been interesting though with the right guide, as this is a major source of the Kaziranga flood plains...More

Sandbanks are a problem! Its a peaceful scene of bluey-greys, mistiness, sandy banks, some with grass beginning to sprout, others being cultivated. Sometimes one sees gangetic dolphins or buffalo.
