Uttarakhand and West Bengal are two extraordinarily beautiful states in India, verdant and green and teeming with wildlife and a rich and varied culture. The wildlife in this region varies from the better known parks of Madhya Pradesh as, in addition to tigers, leopards and bears, these parks individually also have wild Asian elephants and the one -horned rhino, recently brought back from extinction!  Dibrugarh is renowned for that classic British cuppa, tea and Calcutta was the original capital of British India and is a wonderful mélange of British Colonial architecture and influences and  archetypical old world India – it is unique, welcoming and charming!
