Kolkata, Darjeeling & Assam

traveling from Mother Teresa’s orphanage, to Assam or the serenity of a Darjeeling tea plantation, your emotions will be stretched in more way ways than you can imagine. Especially if you’re thrilled by the sight of wild elephants, forgotten villages…

Kolkata is definitely an experience not to be missed. In amongst the color and clamour of this tumultuous city you will find impressive remnants of empire, like the white marble Victoria Monument, and moments of unforgettable pathos. 

Our experts will also take you away from the clamour, up into the cool, sweet air of Darjeeling’s Glenburn; a tea plantation perched above the banks of the River Rungeet, high in the Himalayas, surrounded by the mighty peaks of the Kanchenjunga range. But Darjeeling is famous for more than tea; its Tiger Hill railroad station is a UNESCO Heritage Site and the 50 mile, narrow gauge, rail journey is another unforgettable experience.

And then there is the boat ride along Assam’s famous Brahmaputra River. Our experts will advise you to make sure your camera battery is fully charged and you have plenty of memory. Untouched rural villages, a dazzling array of birds, glorious Mons-period ruins, wild elephant, buffalo and deer can all be spotted amongst the region’s forests and rolling grasslands.
