East India is so full of diversity which is otherwise very difficult to experience. Within its area East India encapsulates some of the most striking contrasts in the sub-continent. Darjeeling has the coniferous forests and terraced tea gardens. Calcutta, India’s largest city has become a world metropolis, In Puri one can relax at the long stretch of golden beaches. During the Experiences of East India with Sikkim tour we experience the cultural sensation of past as well as the most vivid architectural treasures of Hindu temples of East India including the most famous Surya temple of Konark and the Temples of Bhubaneshwar. Sikkim is an additional highlight of this tour. Sikkim is not only famous for Kanchenjunga (8,586 m), the third highest mountain in the world but also for a rich flora and fauna and its diverse ethnic and cultural population.
