    Few facts about West Bengal!

    Favorite thing: Among the Himalayan ranges of this region, singalila range hosts sandakfu which at 3,636 metres (11,929 ft) is the highest point of West Bengal.

    Two high peaks, Tiger hill and Ghoom are seen near the town of Darjeeling. Many ranges branch off in different directions from tiger hill. Durpindara is an important mountain in the eastern part of the mountainous region.

    A few hills also occur in the terai or dooars region at the foot of the Himalayas. Some remnants of the siwaliks can be seen in the Jalpaiguri district, where they are known as the buxa-jayanti hills.

    A small coastal region is on the extreme south, while the Sundarbans mangrove forests form a remarkable geographical landmark at the Ganges delta.

    Favorite thing: The Sunderbans is a paradise for photography. One can return having captured many beautiful memories from this place. The waterways , around every bend , are breathtaking. The gnarled shaped of the trees are unusual and different from other trees. Bird-life is prolific, and in the camp itself , the gardens were filled with flowers all all kinds and colours.
    The light itself seemed different. Maybe its the total lack of pollution that makes it so.
    Everyone that on our tour was friendly. Even although there is plenty of oppurtunity to socialise, one can choose- take a quiet walk or meet in the "pub" near the restuarant.
    We met some lovely people, and new friendships were formed.
    The nightly gatherings were fun, sitting around the campfire and watching the dancers.
    Richard and I prefer to, and usually do, make our own way in other countries. But this time, we made the right decision to go with a group. I really recommend the Tiger Camp- Tigers or no. Good luck if you should be fortunate enough to see one.
