East India - swimming with elephants

Holly Morris starts her Indian adventure in the capital of West Bengal, the bustling heaving city of Calcutta. After a few very intense days in that city of extremes, she heads for the most remote region in India: the lush tropical Andaman Islands. She goes swimming with elephants and has some amazing dives, before heading north to the Himalayas, for a trek outside of the mountain hill station of Darjeeling.

From there she heads out to one of the least known corners of the vast sub-continent, the finger of land called Arunachal Pradesh. After a gruelling journey of several days, she reaches her destination of the remote mountain village of Adi Pasi, joining the Adi hill tribe in hunting, gathering, and eating their delicacy: rat!
