Calcutta Times

Possible Experiences

  • Colonial times in a hand-pulled rickshaw

    Hand-pulled rickshaws are on their way out everywhere in the world and the last few thousands remain in Kolkata, where the proud owners are staunch in their fight against the its eradication.

  • Ghat walks and street food

    Walk along the river Hooghly to see real Kolkata, from the Strand or the river promenade to relish some of the best street food in all of India. A city that debates art and food like a Parisian would and a city that loves its sweets.

  • Mangled mangroves & lurking tigers

    Venture into a place full of mangled trees precariously holding onto land that's constantly being attacked by water. You are in the River Ganges delta, called the Sundarbans or beautiful forest. This is the biggest mangrove forest in the world and an ecological wonder besides being home to the Royal Bengal tiger! 

  • The best taxi in the world

    Hitch a ride in the Hindustan Ambassador, India's most known car with new-found fame thanks to the Top Gear guys crowning it the 'best taxi in the world'. The Amby, as it is called lovingly, has been synonymous with India and the elephant in its sheer size and clunky gait and is a must-do on your trip to the country. Karma India will go out on a limb and call it cute, even!

  • The hills are alive with the aroma of chai

    Drink the finest tea and trek to the foothills of the Himalayas from Darjeeling, the famous tea town of West Bengal that began growing tea during the colonial times.  A popular tourist destination, it is located in the Mahabharat Range or Lesser Himalaya at an average elevation of 6,710 ft.
