The Dooars or Duars (in Bengali & Nepali) are the floodplains and foothills of the eastern Himalayas in North-East India around Bhutan. Duar means door in Nepali and Bengali languages, and the region forms the gateway to Bhutan from India. The Western Dooars is known as the Bengal Dooars and the Eastern Dooars as the Assam Dooars. The Dooars valley (also called Duars) stretching from River Teesta on the west to River Sankosh on the east, an area coving roughly 130 km by 40 km, the Dooars forms major part of the Jalpaiguri district.
Upon arrival at the railway station/airport, you are received and driven to your hotel/resort at Lataguri. This place is close to the Garumara National Park. We prefer to put up our guests in hotels/resorts which give you a feeling of being either in the forest or in a tea garden.
After breakfast, we take you for an excursion to Samsing & Sunthalekhola. Samsing is a tea estate in the Dooars and a small locality of about 100 houses surrounding the tea gardens. On the top of the hill there is a beautiful Guesthouse. The silence of the place is disturbed only by the noise of the gurgling river Murti, which flows about half a kilometer below. The drive to Samsing is through lush green tea gardens and the descending mist on the tea gardens during the monsoons is a sight to behold. It is a great spot to watch birds.
Today we would take you for an excursion to Murti, Jhalong and Bindu.Murti is a small village by the side of the Murti River. It is an ideal picnic spot where one can enjoy the scenic beauty. Lucky ones can even catch a glimpse of elephants and other animals by the side of Murti River when they come to drink water.Jhalong is situated on the bank of the river Jaldhaka on the Indo-Bhutan border. It lies at the foothills of the Himalayas, on the way to Bindu in Kalimpong sub-division. Jaldhaka Hydro Electricity Project on Jaldhaka River is a major attraction in this area.
