Kolkata earlier known as Calcutta, once the capital of British India, the capital of undivided Bengal and now the capital of West Bengal is situated on the east bank of Hooghly river, and is the perfect gateway to eastern India. It is a city of glaring contrasts, a curious blend of the old and the new, partly feudal, partly born out of growing urbanization, partly un-definable. It is a medley of the east and the west, a graft of an European city imposed on the Asian scape that gives Kolkata its bewildering charm and excitement.
Darjeeling means the land of Thunder better known as queen of the hills, sits atop (2134 meters) the beautiful, mystic grandeur of the Himalayas. It is a little town of West Bengal maze of steps and terraces, malls and looping railway tracks.
Exotic colorful bazars, quaint monasteries, forests and gardens are the part of the town’s picturesque surroundings. Darjeeling is synonymous with the famous Toy train and Darjeeling tea.

Pemayangste monastery is less than a kilometer from Pelling while a 40 minute walk on the hill opposite the monastery takes you to Sanga Choling monastery built in 1697, one of the first in the state.
Once an important transit point for traders traveling between Tibet and India, Gangtok, the capital city of Sikkim is located on a ridge at a height of 5500 metres. The town provides spectacular views of the Khangchendzonga.

This event attracts a large number of locals and tourists each year.
This beautiful hill town is situated at an altitude of 1250 meters in North Bengal. Situated at an altitude of 1250 metres, it enjoys temperate climate throughout the year. Somewhat secluded and tucked away in the corner under big Darjeeling umbrella, Kalimpong offers a quiet and relaxed holiday, against the backdrop of the Kanchenjunga.
Bhubaneswar means "The Lord of the Universe" is also popularly known as the "Temple City of India" on account of its many temples in the extravagant Orissan style. Today’s capital city of Orissa also played an important role in the Indian history as the ancient capital of Kalinga Empire. Bhubaneshwar is the architectural legacy of that period as there are many sites which testify the importance of the region far earlier during the period from the 7th to 11th centuries when the Kalinga kings ruled Orissa and regions beyond. The Jain and Buddhist shrines give a clear picture about the settlements around Bhubaneswar in the first 2 centuries BC, and one of the most complete edicts of the Mauryan Emperor Ashoka, dating from between 272-236 BC, remains carved in rock just 5 miles to the south west of the modern city.
Chilika is the Asia’s largest lagoon along the east coast of India. The 1100 sq. km lagoon is a unique assemblage of marine, brackish and fresh water eco-system with estuarine characters. The lake is separated from the Bay of Bengal by a narrow sandy ridge, recognized as Ramsar “Wetland of International Importance” for its biodiversity.
