Darjeeling located in the state of West Bengal is situated at an attitude of 6,710 ft in Lesser Himalaya. This UNESCO World Heritage Site is noted for its Darjeeling Himalayan Railways and its famous tea industry. A large number of inhabitants being Buddhist there are lots of old monasteries are present along its length and breadth. The vivid landscapes, tea plantation, eternal weather and the slopes make it one of the most popular tourist destinations of India.

Sikkim is a north-eastern state of India with international borders on three sides viz. north border is with Tibet (which is now part of China), west with Nepal and east with Bhutan. Almost the whole of Sikkim is in a hilly terrain surrounded by the Himalayan mountain range. So what can you expect in Sikkim?…. fascinating views of Himalayas including Mount Kanchenjunga snow peaks, numerous mountain streams many of which eventually merge with river Teesta and river Rangeet, lovely river valleys and meadows, several high altitude lakes & hot springs, and even high altitude passes that connect the state with Tibet, Nepal and Bhutan. Sikkim is India’s first fully organic state.

All good things in life come in small packets and Gangtok, a capital city of Sikkim is a good illustration. Be it the rich flora, the beautiful people, or the serene Buddhist monasteries, this small town, occupies an important position in the itinerary of tourists in search of tranquillity from the humdrum of modern life.

Pelling is a small hill town of western Sikkim perched at an altitude of 6,800ft with magnificent views of Kanchenjunga peaks. Pelling is also well known for several historical sites & monasteries, natural landscapes including lakes and waterfalls, and of course its friendly and charming people.

The Sunderbans forest lies in the delta formed by the confluence of Bramhaputra, Padma and Meghna rivers across southern Bangladesh and southern West Bengal. A UNESCO world heritage site, it is home to the largest population of tigers in the world. It is also the largest single block of tidal mangrove forest in the world. The Sunderbans is intersected by a complex network of tidal waterways, mudflats and small islands of salt-tolerant mangrove forests. The dominant mangrove species Heritiera fomes is locally known as Sundari. The Sunderbans provides a unique ecosystem and a rich wildlife habitat. Tigers, Fishing Cats, Macaques, Wild Boars, Common Grey Mongooses, Foxes, Jungle Cats, Pangolins and Chital are found in abundance in the Sunderbans.
