East India Temples

East India

Beautiful east India perfectly showcases the country’s rich tea heritage and unveils the many facets of this diverse country. Travel to the Hooghly River and explore Kolkata, the capital of the Indian state of West Bengal, which was also once the capital of British India. Sample the heady mix of flavours synonymous with Bengali cuisine. Learn a word or two of Bengali, the most widely spoken language of this region; and immerse yourself in picturesque Darjeeling – a spectacular area of tea plantations, established in the 1860s. Be sure to make a stop at Assam’s Kaziranga National Park, where you can view a plethora of wildlife, including endangered species. West of Bengal is the state of Bihar, which straddles the lower Ganges. This is the landscape of the Buddha, where you have the opportunity to walk in his 2 500 year old footsteps – truly an exercise of  personal discovery.
