West Bengal: An Overview

West Bengal is a state located in the eastern part of India. It is the fourth most populous state in the country. It is known for its colourful and vibrant culture, with several unique festivals celebrated across the state. Apart from that, there are several tourist sites that attract visitors from around the country.

Kolkata is the capital of West Bengal and the third-largest metropolis in India. Some of the prominent visit-worthy places in the state include Kolkata, Darjeeling, Kalimpong, Hooghly, and Sunderbans.

Darjeeling is a popular hill station known for its scenic tea gardens, mountains and the Darjeeling tea. If Darjeeling is not your cup of “tea”, you can visit Kalimpong for some tranquillity. If you wish to enjoy nature, Sunderbans is the right place, as it is known for its national park and tiger reserve.
