About Assam | Brahmaputra
 
   

Among the largest rivers on earth in terms of discharge and sediment, Brahmaputra is intrinsic to the socio-cultural life in Assam. The river is Assam’s lifeline, nurturing its topography and culture and sustaining major urban centres, including Guwahati, on its banks.

Brahmaputra has also been at the core of Assam’s folklore, inspiring literature, art and music often for leaving behind a wave of destruction during the monsoon months. It was one of India’s major waterways until India’s partition and independence in 1947. The river today is used for ferrying passengers across and operating luxury cruises between Guwahati and Kaziranga.
