( Dooars )
The forested areas of Northern West Bengal present a plethora of
Wildlife. This mixed dry deciduous forest land dotted with grasslands, harbors
the largest diversity of mega fauna in West Bengal.
A large range of foothill forest in North Bengal is called Dooars.
Once the whole area was under the reign of Koch Raj. A visit to
this area may bring visitors to be in touch with the combination
of the solidified history and nature. Tea Gardens, alpine landscape,
transparent river, National Parks and the Wildlife Sanctuary creates
a paradise. Beautiful motorable roads cut through deep forests,
rich with wildlife. Mauve hills stand at the end of velvet green
plains. The forests echo with the melody of birds. In between, there
are fabulous wildlife sanctuaries with picture-postcard, log cabin
lodges and valleys carpeted with tea gardens.
The ruins of forts at Nalrajar Garh and Buxa Duar, Jalpesh temple
and Totopara, the habitat of the rare Toto tribes.
