Dooars

Journey through the rolling hill slope, widespread lush green tea gardens separated by meandering silvery mountain streams, high Sal forests, small quiet ethnic villages, vast meadow with a blue out line of the great Himalayan ranges in the horizon, endless sky….. you are in Dooars!
Lying in the Himalayan foothills, Dooars has great natural beauty. The wildlife-rich tropical forests, innumerable hill streams cutting across the green carpet of tea gardens and undulating plains, low hills rising up from the rivers.

A drive through the Dooars plains, the gateway of Bhutan, can be a lifetime experience.

The Dooars valley 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.

The name Dooars is derived from the ‘doors’ as the region is the gateway to the entire north-east India and Bhutan. Dooars is also the gateway to the hill stations of Darjeeling Sikkim region.

Dooars is famous for its rich biodiversity and forests. The most notable of which are Gorumara National Park, Jaldapara Wild Life Sanctuary and Buxa Tiger Reserve.
