Event Overview

About the Tour :
Durga Pooja is one of the famous festival in West-Bengal. Its similar like Ganapati festival in Mumbai. Few days like Shashti Saptami, Ashti, Navami and Vijayadashmi are the special days when Durgotsava are in flow. We are focusing on these dates. Durga Puja also known as Durgotsava. According to Hindu mythology, goddess “Durga” is emerged by collective energy of all gods to destroy devil “Mahishasura”.

It is not only the engagement of Durga Pooja or worship of Ma Durga but also cultural and social exchange that keep them busy during festival. Various pandals in Kolkata are artistically decorated pandals. Its not any individual who is involved in this but is the collective effort of local community. These pandals are open throughout the day and at night these pandals are decorated on the various themes or current affairs. There are competitions in Kolkata where the best decorated pandals get the reward and win the competition. Locals go in and around the city for Pandal hoping to get the actual feel of it.

Sundarban :
Sundarban Tiger reserve is located on the eastern corner of India and is one of the UNESCO world heritage site today. The untamed area of 4246 square km in India (as major part is in Bangladesh country as well) is well dominated mangrove forests and is ruled by the Royal Bengal Tigers.

Along with tigers, the entire area is very rich in biodiversity with birds like brown winged kingfisher, black capped kingfisher, Pallas’s fish eagle, Grey headed fish eagle, Peregrine falcons, swamp partridges and numerous ducks, Reptiles like dangerous salt water crocodiles, king cobra, monitor lizards.
