Dooars

Reviewed By FaizanNKhan - Kolkata

Doooars is a lovely forest area along with Bhutan border visit. We have been to many Forests however dooars remains our best for reason it is spread into different clusters and each forest is fresh and different to another.
Jaldapara for amazing elephant safari.
Gorumara and chapramari for jeep safari along with a lovely time on the river.
Hollong for its scary feeling at night when u are inside the lodge and surrounded with many animals and you are watching them eat salt from your window.
Please stay only at wbfdc and west Bengal tourism cottages to really enjoy as they are located best along with full priority over Safaris.

The forest is indeed lovely just that there aren't many Safaris going each day and also no information is available....
Could be made into a happening and one of the best tourist attractions if cared the by the tourism department....
The only saving grace here were the locals who were what's very supportive and cooperative....
We enjoyed our stay overall...

Reviewed By DekaCM - Kolkata (Calcutta), India

The buxa fort has association with India's pre-independence history. It can be easily reached by a short trek. The ruins of the old fort is a nice place for photography.

Sikia Jhora

Reviewed By Aparajita B

Go and spend time enjoying the breeze and landscape from the land if you want to but DON'T DO THE BOAT RIDE
Just 1 boat that Ferries a bunch of passengers for 30-40 mins. Nothing to sight absolutely!! Not even the breeze when you are on the ride.
Cabbie who took us to buxar jayanti trip wanted to make extra bucks and took us here, wasted time, took additional money

Jalpaiguri Rajbari

Reviewed By Suprovat_Chatto - Kolkata (Calcutta), India

Picture shows the gate that once used to be the entry to the Rajbari (palace). Now the palace is in a dilapidated condition. The things to visit is the Gate, the Kali temple on the other side of the road and the huge Dighi (pond) which is still trying to draw a balance between the nature and the development of the city.

The Baptist Church

Reviewed By DOOARSTOUR - Jalpaiguri, India

Tarai and Dooars may be called as Paradise on Earth. The natural beauties of Tarai & Dooars are situated in the foothills of the Eastern Himalayas. The biggest river of North Bengal is “TEESTA”. The foothills of eastern Himalayas are divided into two parts by the river Teesta. These two parts are known as Tarai & Dooars. The western part of the river Teesta is called “TARAI” and eastern part is called “DOOARS”.
A vast texture of dense Forests teeming with wildlife, unending tea Gardens, bubbling rivers, interspersed with sleepy or busy settlements, constitute this fascinating tourist destination – the “TARAI AND DOOARS” where nature has kept her doors wide open. Here lie abundantly splendid gifts of nature and enormous resources for “Eco-Tourism”.

Mendabari Fort

Reviewed By Asmita_Mitra - Calcutta, West Bengal, India

The maximum no of wild life i have spotted in Chilapata Forest among all others in Dooars. Have been to Dooars quite a few times, but this is best one. And if you get to stay at Mendabari Jungle Camp then its an added attraction. The nearly vanishing fort will engage your attraction.
