Boat trip down the Brahmaputra. (2 Replies)
I know about the Alfresco and we will probably take the sunset cruise. However i have taken a similar cruise very often down the Mandovi river in Panaji, Goa. Very touristy. Are they any local small ferries (except for the Umananda Temple) or boats that can take us up or down the river. A rowing boat of fishermen or something like that? Would like to see some local life/village along the river.
