There are several things to do in West Bengal based on your interests, starting from adventure sports to a culinary journey, from trekking to jungle safaris and so much more. Adventure sports in West Bengal include trekking, water sports, sailing, mountain biking and rafting. You can enjoy trekking in Darjeeling, traversing across the alpine valleys and the soaring hills, alongside bubbling brooks and meandering rivers. A unique experience for sure, since the mostly lush green environment of Darjeeling is contrasted sharply by the rugged stretches of mountainous region. In places such as Purulia, the Jayanti Hills are a great place to enjoy some rock climbing. Other adventure activities in West Bengal such as rafting can be enjoyed on the Teesta River, which is much famed for its ferocious speed of flow. Watersports can also be enjoyed at the beach areas of the state, such as Tajpur, Digha, Diamond Harbour, Sagardwip beach and Mandarmani. For those who like the adrenaline rush that comes from watersports, activities such as snorkeling, water zorbing, para-sailing and water skiing. These activities to do in West Bengal are a lot of fun to indulge in, considering that adventure sports in West Bengal are a well-kept secret. A few other activities in West Bengal that you must indulge in include bike tours across the mountainous areas of the state, such as Sandakphu Peak.

Among the other top things to do in West Bengal, sampling the delicious cuisine is a must. The Bengali cuisine is full of spicy meats and fishes as well as the syrupy taste of traditional and innovative sweets. You can also try out some of the date and palm jaggery, if you visit during the season. There are also many a festivals to attend, the most famous of which is the Durga Puja, which is a 10 days long festival that is full of enthusiasm, religious fervor, vibrant colors and a major sense of belonging. The Poush Mela is another must attend festival. It is held in Shanti Nikentan, and brings together artists, poets and musicians on one stage paying homage to the Great Rabindra Nath Tagore. The Ganga Sagar Mela should also be given a visit, held at Sagar Island at the point where the Holy River Ganges meets the sea.

If you are looking for fun things to do in West Bengal, then make sure to take a swim in the many small lakes and pools that dot the state. Who knows, you might even find one in your vicinity. You can also enjoy a bout of fishing here, but make sure to ask for permission before you do that, since these pools and lakes are mostly owned by a family or a neighborhood.

    • Trip to Sikkim - Gangtok - Darjeeling

      I must thank Sai tours and travels for the amazing experience i had during my solo trip to darjeeling- sikkim from 6th to 12th aug 2019. I had multiple issues from the time of booking however it was smoothly arranged and sorted by Mr Shivasish. I also had an amazing driver/guide Mr Binod who went an extra mile to make my birthday a memorable one. They made sure i had the best experience in every place i visited and also ensured i was safe and comfortable throughout.I celebrated my brithday there in a monastery and they were so thoughtful to get me a lovely cake and some candies to be distributed to the children in the monastery. Unlike regular tours and travels, they ensured there is a human touch to the services provided which in the end gave a high level of customer satisfaction. They look into the issues highlighted seriously and rectifies it as soon as possible to ensure customers and well taken care of. I will strongly recommend their service to any traveler especially if its your first time and you are not quite sure of whereabouts. I am very sure they can not only create a good and safe trip but also a memorable experience that you would cherish. gangtok , darjeeling

    • Trip to Sikkim - Gangtok - Darjeeling

      Hi all this is my first trip with TT and expected a lot . Thought this trip would be a memorable in my life but unfortunately its not , because of poor coordination , planning and communication . I missed few places like natulla pass and few others . Travel agent by name DEEPAK was very rude . Accomodation was not upto the mark as there were poor facilities like lack of hot water , door hinges were dangling and food issues . Travel agents ( Neeraj and deepak ) dont answer / reply to the calls and they didnt communicate propley. Shivani was helpful through watsap Rest all omg ...... 1. Driving ......really appreciate drivers .A big applause 2. Yumtung valley 3. Zero point 4. Lachung

      Hotel Royal Sarvara in Darjiling was not so good as compared to rest of the hotels. Yumthang valley in Lachung was great. The landslides on the way back from Lachung to Gangtok was truoblesome but it was a great experience with a dash of adventure involved thus included in best memories.

    FAQ's of West Bengal

    Read on to find out why our customers love us!

    West Bengal is a great place for foodies. Try to savor the fish preparations here, and the sweets.

    You can club Sikkim and Orissa with your West Bengal trip.

    It is very hot and humid in West Bengal during the summers and the monsoons, so make sure to carry light and airy clothes if visiting during this time. For the winter months, carry light woolens.

    The ideal duration for a West Bengal tour depends on the destinations that the tourists wish to cover and the experiences they want to choose. A 4 nights, 5 day trip would ideally cover all major destinations in a hassle-free manner. However, if tourists wish to explore more offbeat destinations then a longer trip can be arranged. Consult the travel agents at Travel Triangle for more information regarding the same.

    Tourists should try to visit West Bengal during the winter months, from November to February
