Activities in West Bengal

When looking for outdoor activities in West Bengal, try your hand at river rafting or if you are in the higher reaches go trekking in the hills surrounding the Darjeeling region.

River Rafting: Teesta River offers rafting expedition on its banks. However, the beginners can step in the waters only under trained professionals and those who can’t swim may not be allowed on certain stretches of the river.

There are also riverside camps which will provide you with the necessary equipments like life jackets, helmets etc. The best time to go for this adventure activity is in the winter months starting from October till April.
