Assam is the ideal destination for those who love horses and horse riding as it brings back the nostalgia of the life the British planters led. Ride along the banks of the Brahmaputra as the river comes alive. Enjoy an exhilarating canter along the sandy shores or just walk gently through the villages of the river people. The extensive trails in the tea gardens will also make an attractive ride. See the tea pluckers at work, plucking fresh green tips destined for the estate factory. Your hosts are Manoj and Vineeta Jalan who have pioneered equestrian tourism in the area. Manoj is a keen endurance rider and his fit and responsive horses reflect this. The horses are all thoroughbred types and require a competent rider. Included in this holiday is a two day visit to Kaziranga National park which is world famous for its one horned rhinoceros. Kaziranga is also known for its elephant back safaris.
Your base during the ride is a beautifully renovated former tea manager’s Heritage Chang bungalow set in the midst of the tea gardens. From your veranda and over morning tea, you will hear the jingle of bicycle bells and the chatter of the tea workers as they walk or cycle to work.
Each day the rides explore the surrounding tea gardens and Brahmaputra flood plain. Throughout the area you will see farmers working their fields in a way unchanged for centuries.

The Subansiri River or “Gold River” is the biggest tributary of the Upper Brahmaputra. It descends through verdant rainforests in the tribal state of Arunachal Pradesh, draining the waters beyond the Great Himalayan Range from Tsona Dzong up to the Great Bend of the Tsangpo in Tibet. It slices through the Eastern Himalayas to flow into India at Asaphila, and then on through the rugged isolated hinterlands of Arunachal before joining the mighty Brahmaputra at the mystic confluence of Majuli – one of the largest inhabited river island in the world.
The Subansiri River has no road following it on either side of the Himalayas for almost 150 Km. Very difficult terrain with vertical rock faces and only sparse habitation along its banks has kept and continues to keep the upper reaches isolated. This is a challenging, high volume, fast-flowing, and adrenaline-pumping river set in a scenic, breathtaking environment. Lower down, friendly hill people retain many of their unique traditions and customs developed over a millennium.
The sparse human habitation along the lower half of the Subansiri makes it ideal for adventure enthusiasts such as anglers and rafters. The lure of big fighting fishes such as Golden Mahseer, Trout and the Goonj can bring out the excitement in any fisherman. The river has volume, flow, class 3 and higher white water rapids, and is set in a breathtaking and exotic forested landscape where warm hearted tribal hill people live with unique traditions and customs.
