Why only North Bengal as Meaningful Destinations India when there is whole of India?…

This question will certainly strike in your mind that ” Why should I visit North Bengal when there are so many other places?”. In obvious terms the answer is “Yes, that’s right”. The main ideas of and concepts of Meaningful Travel India took its shape in North Bengal. As an initial start there were and are many factors of North Bengal that are uniquely responsible for the concept to take its full working form. Such factors can rarely be seen in any other parts of India except the North- East India or its gateway-North Bengal. Only few of the factors are mentioned below and rest you can experience after you become a part of this concept. These are the facts that fuelled the ideas of Meaningful Travel India to take its replicable status that can be later implemented in other states of India as well.

  • North Bengal ( West Bengal ) is the only state of India sharing three international borders ( Nepal, Bhutan and Bangladesh) and is just few kilometres away from the China Border that is shared by Sikkim , its neighbouring state. The place due to to this vulnerability is often called a curse a of Geography and named Chicken Neck – Siliguri Corridor”Due to this, the small area has the most diverse cultural impact than any other states of India. There are many tribes who have even come to the state of getting extinct and are considered as one of the most unique tribes of the world – Totopara Village and Totos.


  • Imagine a single state starting right from the Zero Milestone of measuring the great Himalayas going down through the great Ganges delta and plateaus till you meet the coastal regions of the sea. For all the landscape lovers , artists , photographers, West Bengal is the only state of India that has the Himalayas in the north and the sea in the south with both the plateaus and plains in the middle. So this means that the livelihood options , natural bio-diversities and cultural differences would be the most diverse in comparison to any other states of India. To be more clear after every 5-10 kilometres of distance you will find a village belonging to a totally different tribe with different culture and tradition taking you to a different world.


  • Comparing the wildlife protecting areas with other parts of India West Bengal is the only state that is an abode to the largest mangrove forests in the world – Sundarbans. The place is also an abode to the pride of the country – The royal Bengal Tiger. In the same way there are other national parks named Neora Valley National Park, Buxa Tiger Reserve in the north , which is one of the pristine heritage forests of India. The forest abodes some of endangered species that have their names in the scheduled lists of Red Data Book Of IUCN. Some of the few names are Red Panda, Chinese Pangolin, clouded Leopard and many more.
