Pandaw on the Hooghly
The Lower Ganges, or Hooghly River as it is also known, is a sacred river that flows through India’s West Bengal, branching off from the mother river, The Ganga. Exploring the Hooghly River by boat is the best way to experience the diverse cultures and scenery of West Bengal and to discover places difficult to reach by road from the comfort of your own home-from-home cruise boat.
Pandaw’s 7-night Lower Ganges expedition brings travellers to the heart of West Bengal for a unique and in-depth exploration by river and is the perfect addition to any trip in India. The river wends its way through the lush countryside of West Bengal with its culturally significant towns crammed with temples and palaces. A rich and vibrant rural life abounds and there is never a dull moment as the boat sedately cruises this pleasant waterway.
Want to make the most of your time in India and explore further? Why not extend your Lower Ganges expedition with a sailing along the Mighty Brahmaputra River or join a full Highlights of India Tour including Delhi and the famous Taj Mahal.
