Cruise operator Antara River Cruises has announced the longest river trip in the world

The world's longest river journey will start in Kashi, Uttar Pradesh, and the final destination will be Dibrugarh in Assam. The ship will pass through 27 small rivers, 5 states and 2 countries. Tourists will have a fantastic opportunity to get acquainted with the culture of South Asia. At the same time, the cruise directorate will allow tourists to choose their own pickup and drop-off points if they want to travel only on certain segments.  

Chairman of the board of the company Raj Singh noted: “I personally developed the route and experienced it myself. This historic event was only made possible by the support, assistance and cooperation of the Governments of India and Bangladesh, who are working together to ensure smooth travel between the two countries. 

Daily stops are planned along the route, so passengers can go ashore every day. Tourists are expected to get acquainted with the World Heritage Sites in Uttar Pradesh, Bihar and West Bengal. The ship will pass through the UNESCO-protected mangrove forests of the Sundarbans and finally enter Bangladesh at Barisal, Bagerhat and Dhaka before returning to India and crossing Assam. TURIZM.RU
