North East India
This selection of India holidays with World Discovery concentrates on the lesser known region of India that encompasses the Himalayan foothills, including the former British hill stations of Darjeeling and Kalimpong, the remote Buddhist state of Sikkim in the shadow of Kanchenjunga, third highest mountain in the world, and the great Imperial Capital of Calcutta (Kolkata), the historic gateway to the northeast.
Calcutta is also the gateway to Assam, known both for its tea and its wildlife, Orissa (Odisha) with its fabulous temples, and the unique Sunderbans in the Ganges Delta, with its abundant wildlife including saltwater crocodiles, dolphins, otters and the world's largest population of tigers.
As part of World Discover's commitment to responsible tourism practices, we are International Tour Operator members of the Travel Operators for Tigers campaign (TOFT). For further details please view this website : www.toftigers.org
