Dooars

Nature has kept her doors wide open in The Dooars. Derived from the word ‘doors’, the Dooars valley also forms a gateway to the hill stations of North Bengal, Sikkim, Bhutan, Assam and the Far East.   The valley stretches across a vast span of 130 km by 40 km. The unending stretch of virgin forests interwoven with innumerable tea gardens is cris-crossed by Teesta, Jaldhaka, Torsha and Sankosh rivers and their innumerable tributaries trotting and rolling down from the hills.  Beautiful motorable roads cut through the deep forests teeming with wildlife. The Dooars valley is specially noted for its wild life sanctuaries, the most notable of which are the national park of Gorumara, the Mahananda Sanctuary, the Buxa Tiger Reserve and Jaldapara Sanctuary.  These sanctuaries abound in a fascinating diversity of flora and fauna. Vast texture of massive trees giving birth to varieties of orchids and rarest plants and resounded with echoes of birds and wild animals make tit a veritable paradise for lovers of Nature and Eco-tourism.
