Darjeeling

Bengal has a long history that dates back, before the Aryan invasions of India. Known as 'Gauda' or 'Vanga' in ancient Sanskrit literature, Bengal had a well settled civilization and culture. This fascinating land of the Hooghly, has a lot to offer to travelers. West Bengal’s terrain is varied: some of the highest mountains are found in the upper reaches of Darjeeling and the swampiest mangroves in the Sunderbans. If you are here, then do savor the Mishti Doi!
