lahé life represents a slower, more conscious way of living, of travelling.

Brought to you by Assam Bengal Navigation.

India is blessed with many bountiful rivers, but Assam's Brahmaputra river is undoubtedly the mightiest of them all. Presenting a variety of cultural and wildlife delights along its course, like tracking rhinos and tigers at Kaziranga National Park, and discovering the dancing monks of the neo-Vaishnavite sect at Majuli, there's plenty to enthral travellers of all ages on our lahé cruises.

lahé cruises are designed for 1-2 persons, or a couple with their 2 small children. Itineraries reflect a sense of deliberate slowness, enabling guests to cruise gently, and keenly absorb the beauty of Assam.
