MV Rudra Singha on her maiden cruise down the Brahmaputra river Experience riverside idyll as you glide down the Brahmaputra river of Assam, one of India’s most beautiful states, on MV Rudra Singha. Eastern Odyssey, part of the JTI Group, launches MV Rudra Singha, a tastefully appointed, air-conditioned houseboat for private river cruises on the entire stretch of the Brahmaputra river in the Assam plains. Ideal for one couple or a small family, MV Rudra Singha operates from October to May every year. While the home port of MV Rudra Singha is Guwahati, the capital of Assam, she is built to sail all the way upstream to river ports near the remote state of Arunachal Pradesh, where the great river starts its tumultuous mountain journey from Tibet. With more than a decade’s experience of operating river cruises in India in under another JTI Group company, Assam Bengal Navigation – the pioneer of Indian river cruising – we are wonderfully placed to launch our exclusive and private river cruises for the discerning traveller. MV Rudra Singha is now taking bookings. 1
