About CALCUTTA AND THE NORTH EAST

The obscure fishing village by the Hoogly River that rose to imperial heights as the capital of the Raj, atmospheric Calcutta is suffused with a stunning architectural and cultural legacy of India’s colonial period.

Take off for exciting adventures of India’s northern tea growing regions of Darjeeling, the Dooars and Assam. Savour the splendours of the flora and fauna and trekking vistas of the Eastern Himalayas in Sikkim, catch a cruise on the mighty Bramahaputra and the Hoogly to rediscover the rich nuances of India both past and present or sample the rich nuances of Orissa, its pristine beaches and ancient temples and pilgrims, artists and men of scientific leanings.
