Little visited and often overlooked, East India is an incredible place: from the spellbinding contrasts of Kolkata, to the sleepy waterways of the Sunderbans, the Buddhist culture of Sikkim and the mighty Himalayas.
This journey will enable you to explore Kolkata in depth, before heading south for a lovely tranquil experience in the Sunderbans National Park. Whilst you’re unlikely to spot one of the parks many tigers, there is plethora of wildlife here and it’s a lovely place to spend a few days.
Then it’s back up to Kolkata for an overnight train deep in the Himalayas. This is an incredible region: the heart of Buddhist culture in India, a land of monastaries, sleepy hill towns, welcoming friendly people and breathtaking views.
