A journey through the rolling hill slopes, mesmerizing lush green tea gardens separated by meandering silvery mountain streams, high Sal forests, quiet ethnic villages, vast meadows with a blue outline of the great Himalayan ranges in the horizon and the endless sky…. This is Dooars. Mainly composed of the Districts of Jalpaiguri and Alipurduar, Dooars has numerous beautiful places to visit including hills, wild life sanctuaries, tea gardens, rivers and so on.
