Posted on

The city of joy, Kolkata is in itself a great avenue to bring out the explorer within you. There’s so much to discover, to explore, to wonder, to imbibe, to absorb, to learn that it’d take ages to know the true essence of the land of Kali Ma. If you are staying in the Queen’s land and wish to break free off the monotonous life then travel options nearby include a trip to Bhubaneshwar or Puri or Sunderbans.

Sunderbans- Explore the wildlife of India by taking a walk to the Sunderbans, the mangrove forest. Take the cruises by the side of river Brahmaputra to take a sneak peek into the National Park and Tiger Reserve. The Royal Bengal Tiger, that’s going to be the catch of the trip.
