Alfresco Grand

Cruise in Guwahati

Sunsets over the Brahmaputra are beautiful, and a fun way to enjoy them is on one-hour sunset cruises on Alfresco Grand's comfortable boat with two sundecks and a bar, starting from Machkhuwa Ghat on the western edge of the city centre. The two-hour dinner cruise, incorporating an Assamese classical and folk dance show, is also fun.

The massive monument rising out of the water just upstream from the jetty depicts the Ahom hero Lachit Borphukan rallying his forces at the battle of Saraighat, fought on river and land here in 1671, in which the Ahoms inflicted a decisive defeat on the Mughals, who had occupied the Guwahati area for several decades previously.
