About Dooars
Dooars   The place where nature has kept its doors open. Derived from the word 'doors' (doors to Bhutan), this region, located in the district of Jalpaiguri and Cooch Behar, forms a gateway to the hill stations of North Bengal, Sikkim, Bhutan & North-Eastern states. The dense natural forests, interwoven with lush green tea gardens, criss-crossed by Teesta, Raidak, Torsha, Jaldhaka, Kaljani and other rivers & their
innumerable tributaries rolling down the hills fill up your senses with sublimity.

Location

  Not so much known to the world, the Dooars valley stretching from river Teesta on the west to river Sankosh on the east, over a span of 130 km by 40 km, forms a major part of Jalpaiguri district. To its north stands the east Himalayas as a natural backdrop. A vast texture of dense forests teeming with wildlife, unending tea gardens, bubbling rivers, interspersed with sleepy or busy settlements, is what Dooars is all about.
