Situated in the eastern region of India, West Bengal is home to beautiful coastal areas, dense vegetation, magnificent Himalayan hills, historical monuments and ancient temples. The terrain of the state is varied, some of the highest mountains are found in the upper part of Darjeeling and the swampiest mangroves in the Sundarbans where the Bengal Tigers roam in the jungles while crocodiles infest the river. The land of West Bengal has intricately woven many civilizations that have left their footprints here. Awash in the memory of that rich history and heritage the state boasts of different ethnicities, cultures, religions, people and languages which add to this beautiful landscape. There’s also a lively art scene and delectable cuisine which is hard to resist.
