Eastern India

Less visited, but richly blessed in natural beauty, history and culture

Steamy mangroves sheltering the Royal Bengal Tiger. Gently crumbling colonial heritage in the erstwhile city of the Empire, Calcutta (Kolkata). Spectacular Himalayan peaks overlooking Darjeeling’s tea estates nurturing the finest tea in the world.

‘Seven sisters’ states of North East where tribal communities retain age old traditions amidst pristine natural beauty. The last lap for two of mightiest subcontinental rivers before they meet the sea.

Eastern India is a beguiling, enchanting region inviting you to step off the beaten track.

States in this region: Bihar, Jharkhand, West Bengal, Odisha, Sikkim and The Seven Sisters(Assam, Arunachal Pradesh, Nagaland, Manipur, Tripura, Mizoram and Meghalaya)

Unmissable Sights

Eastern India:


World’s largest estuarine mangrove forest, the third tallest mountain and the mighty Brahmaputra river are key geological influences on the region’s wildlife.

The Eastern Zone hosts many of the country’s rare and endangered mammals, over 8,000 species of plants and nearly 600 of birds.

Come to Kaziranga National Park to see India’s Big 5 (Tiger, Rhino, Elephant, Wild Buffalo, and the critically endangered Swamp Deer). One of the densest tiger forests in the world, Kaziranga is a haven for large herbivores which in turn has been a boon for the tiger population. Its wetlands sustain a diversity of mammals, reptiles, avian species and plants.

Take a boat ride in the Sundarbans’ mangrove swamps to spot tigers.

Go trekking in thick jungles to look for the only true ape in the Indian subcontinent, the Hoolock Gibbon. Or search for Golden Langurs in Manas National Park.

The north eastern states are a treasure trove of pristine tropical wilderness, hugely rewarding for those who make the effort to travel this far.
