A mere village in the 17th century, Kolkata (earlier called Calcutta) today is one of the largest cities in the world, one of the largest ports in the East and the main outlet for produce of West Bengal and neighbouring states.

Locations: Calcutta

Highlights: Explore Kolkata

Description: Breakfast at the hotel Spend the day exploring Kolkata. The city was built around Fort William, with a huge Maidan surrounding it. The main building on the Maidan is the Victoria Memorial, a massive domed building of white marble which houses a collection of Victoria memorabilia, as well as objects and documents related to the history of Bengal. In the park are statues of Queen Victoria, Lord Curzon and other figures of the British Raj. The Race Course, opened in 1819, is the largest in the East. In its central oval are the Calcutta Polo Club grounds where the game has been played since 1861. St. Paul's Cathedral, a tall white Gothic building with a stained-glass window by Burne-Jones, was consecrated in 1847. Chowringhee, once a jungle path leading to the Kali temple and the Esplanade symbolise Calcutta's past grandeur with late 19th century buildings. Raj Bhavan (Government House) was built in 1803. Towards the river are the Assembly House, the old Town Hall and the High Court built in 1872 on the model of the Gothic belfry of Ypres in Flanders. St. John's Church, built in 1784, is reputed to have the best organ in India. In its garden stands a monument to the victims of the 'Black Hole' tragedy. Writers Building, built in the late 19th century, is today the seat of the West Bengal Government. The present General Post Office is located on the site of the first Fort William and a plaque near the main entrance marks the location of the 'Black Hole of Calcutta'.

Description: Breakfast at hotel Transfer to airport to connect flight for Guwahati. Departure Kolkatta 1040 hrs Flight: 6E 207 Arrive Guwahati 1140 hrs On arrival, depart on the drive to Kaziranga(4-5hrs). On arrival check in at hotel. Stretching over an area of 166-sq-mi on the south bank of the Brahmaputra river, Kaziranga is one of the last refuges of the Indian rhino. A vast stretch of coarse, tall elephant grass, marshland and dense tropical forests, it has managed to survive the onslaught of poachers, urbanization and burgeoning human populations. Kaziranga's birth is mostly thanks to one, Lady Curzon, wife of the then British Viceroy to India, who visited Kaziranga in the winter of 1904. Unfortunately, contrary to her expectations of seeing the great Rhino itself, she could only find a few of its hoof marks. Struck by its perilous state she impressed upon her husband Lord Curzon, the need to save the Rhino. Today, 100 years later, in what can be called this Century's Greatest Conservation Success Story, the Rhino population at 1,600 is the single largest in the world! This story sends a loud and clear message to the entire world - that with strong public and political will and collective action of conservation communities, there is hope yet for other critically endangered species across the globe. The vast open country makes the park very accessible and wildlife viewing enjoyable. Spend your days here wildlife viewing either by elephant-back or jeep. Leave in the early hours of the morning for elephant-back-rides. The authorized and trained Mahouts will guide you through the park in hopes of seeing wild elephant herds roaming around or Indian rhinos walking past. Kaziranga is also home to a vast number of animals including elephant, sloth bear, tiger, leopard, jungle cat, hog badger, capped langur, hoolock gibbon, jackal, porcupine, python, buffalo, Indian bison, swamp deer, sambhars and hog deer. The park also boasts a decent avian population, which increases considerably in the winter, when migrating birds visit the park.
