Guwahati is the city where the capital of Assam lies -Dispur, a small village/ town. Guwahati is situated on the south bank of Brahmaputra river. It is also known as the "City of Temples" and "Light of East".
Once you return back from the Umananda Temple, enjoy a peaceful Brahmaputra Sunset River Cruise. The ship is available at 2 timings - 5 PM and 7 PM. Grab a ticket and head to the upper deck which will give you a breath taking view of the sunset. The cruise gives you a mesmerizing and relaxing experience when it takes you around in the Brahmaputra. The live music on the deck coupled with the cool breeze blowing across gives you a great time with your family and friends.When I visited Guwahati last year in April, 2017, it was hosting the Namami Brahmaputra festival which celebrated the beauty of the Brahmaputra river. The five day programme hosted activities to showcase Assam’s art, heritage and culture.Ticket Cost: Alfresco Grand runs the cruise service and charges about Rs. 350 /- per head. In case you order food on the deck, that will be charged extra.Duration: 1 hour
