Those who have been to Dooars know what a treasured destination it is. The dense jungles, the tea gardens, the innumerable streams and silvery rivers, and above all the not-too-distant hill stations like Darjeeling and Gangtok are what that form the unforgettable attractions of Dooars.
There are many places in the deep interior of Dooars that still remain largely unexplored for the general public. This is because there is a lack in planning organized visits to these places. Which means unless you’re a brave trekker who can remain cut off in jungles for several days at a stretch, you stand little chance of being able to explore the Dooars to the fullest.
Looking at immense possibility of tourism, the NBSTC (North Bengal State Transport Corporation) has lined up 5 exciting 8D-7N packages starting this October that will run till December. All these will start from Cooch Behar and cost a measly Rs.5000 including food and lodging.
The packages have been attractively named like Ramgua, Red Panda, Rhododrendron, and Gurupadmasambhava. The places to be covered, depending on package, are the reserve forests like Buxa, Jaldapara, Gorumara, and Jayanti, the hills like Sandakphu, Lava, Lolegaon, and Kalimpong apart from Darjeeling, Gangtok, Chhangu Lake, Yumthang, and the likes.
If you do not want to miss the thrill of these exciting trips, contact 94339 00882 and 94320 95072 in Kolkata or 94341 94273 in Cooch Behar at the earliest. You may also find details at NBSTC’s tour packages.
Low-cost airline Air Deccan is scheduled to shortly commence flights to Cooch Behar from the city. Since the packages start from Cooch Behar and end at New Jalpaiguri, the latter being close to Bagdogra airport, faraway tourists can easily visit the Dooars from Kolkata.
