TEA TOURISM AND DOOARS
Tea-tourism is a fast growing travel concept in the Eastern Himalayas, mainly in the Darjeeling hills and Dooars foothills. Till recently a hidden treasure, Dooars has in the recent past opened its doors welcoming tourists both domestic and international.
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. . Lying in the Himalayan foothills in North Bengal plains, it forms a gateway to Bhutan & the North-Eastern states of India.
The Dooars, also called “The forest trail”, has a fascinating and tempting landscape with breathtaking natural beauty, exotic locations and a rich treasure of flora and fauna. A vast texture of dense forests teeming with wildlife, unending tea gardens, babbling rivers, interspersed with quiet or busy settlements, constitute a fascinating tourist destination – the Dooars.
Dooars is indeed one of the very few places left in the country where nature is so lavish of her green facilities.
Get going. Move forward. Aim High. Plan a takeoff. Don’t just sit on the runway and hope someone will come along and push the airplane. It simply won’t happen. Change your attitude and gain some altitude. Believe me, you’ll love it up here.
