Indian Wildlife

Kaziranga National Park covers an area of 430 sq km, and consists of dense elephant grass, shallow swamps and evergreen forest. The region is renowned for sightings of the Indian one-horned rhinoceros, since the park contains 60% of world's population of these magnificent creatures. Elephant and jeeps safaris also enable one to view large herds of wild elephant, buffalo, barasingha, and deer, together with birds of prey including the Crested Serpent Eagle, Pallas's Fish Eagle, Grey-headed Fish Eagle, and the Pied Harrier. The wetlands also support large numbers of water birds including white pelicans, open-billed storks and black-necked storks.

Calcutta is a city of glaring contrasts: a curious blend of the old and the new, partly feudal, partly born out of growing urbanisation, partly un-definable. It is a medley of the east and the west, a graft of a European city imposed on the Asian landscape that gives Calcutta its bewildering charm, confusion and excitement. Being just about 300 years old, Calcutta hardly has many great historical monuments. Perhaps, the oldest remembered is the site where the Kalighat Temple now stands. Today Calcutta is the largest city in India with a population over 10 million and boasts of India's first ever Metro rail system. It is a city that shocks on first impression but eventually the visitor falls in love with it.

The sightseeing of the city includes a visit to the Victoria Memorial, Calcutta's most imposing and monumental dream in marble opened by the Prince of Wales in 1921 and often called the "Taj" of the British Raj, St. Paul's Cathedral and the Indian Museum, the largest in India, with one of the best collections of Indian art.
