Calcutta wetlands:

This historic city needs no introduction. The confluence of cultures is embedded in its heritages and colonial past as well as its contemporary facades. Considered as one of the warmest, most vibrant, energetic, cultured, endure, chaotic, action-packed, radical, socially and politically conscious and populated cities in the world, Calcutta has a unique bouquet of diverse experiences to offer. The
evolution of the city from just 3 non-descript villages to the gigantic metropolis over a period of little more than 3 centuries can be presented through a highly inspiring and interesting trip package.

Sunderbans:

Dominated by the legendary amphibian Royal Bengal Tigers, Sunderbans is the largest mangrove forests and delta in the world formed by three great river systems: Brahmaputra, Ganges and Meghna. Considered as one of the last true wildernesses remaining on our planet Earth, this tidal country beholds a unique ecosystem totally governed by the diurnal tides resulting into the thriving arena for a myriad life forms - from mammals to the vertebrates. Designated as UNESCO World Heritage Site, Sunderbans is contiguous to Bangladesh. The legendary Bonobibi deity revered and worshiped both by the Hindus and Muslims marks a remarkable departure from the usual notion which prevents Muslims from worshiping any idol.


Being the only Mangrove Tiger Reserve in the world, Sunderbans is conserved as a Biosphere Reserve. The 4 million people inhabiting in about 54 islands scattered across this vast landscape depend heavily for their livelihood on this mysterious and hostile forest terrain.
Come, discover the magical delta!
