Tea tourism is growing in India and Zurrantee has opened up itself as a heritage tea tourism destination.

Far from the hustle and bustle, Zurrantee is the place where you could touch and feel tranquility. The Director’s Bungalow has been transformed to a luxury resort with much love, sensitivity and devotion. And while doing it, the heritage has been preserved and the history has been kept alive.

Jaldhaka: The place radiates an ethereal energy with its evergreen forests all around. Some of the roads here are so quiet that you can hear the crickets and birds distinctly even at 10 in the morning. Walking around here is a great experience as there is beauty hidden around in every corner.

Gorumara National Park: Located on the flood plains of Rivers Murti and Jaldhaka, Gorumara National Park is a must visit destination on a trip to Dooars Tour operator. The National Park offers a large variety of flora and fauna. The grassland of Gorumara is famous for Asiatic one-horned rhino, though you can also see elephants, Indian bison, deer and peacock.

It was the presence of a wide diversity of plants and animals which led the Government to declare an area of 80 square kilometer as a National Park in 1994.

In recent years, there has been substantial increase in tourist arrival as well as in infrastructure. Today the area around the forest has the largest concentration of tourist accommodation in Dooars. The number of Jungle safari options has also increased over the years.

Gorumara can be reached from Bagdogra or New Jalpaiguri in just two hours through winding roads and tea gardens. Although this is the most convenient option for most tourists, there are a few other options for tourists travelling by rail or road. There are a number of smaller railway stations around Gorumara.

You must book your forest safari, organized in special vehicles, from the forest department and take an authorized guide along while visiting the watchtowers. Trespassing is illegal and can be dangerous as well. The common forest safaris include the following places:

Jatraprasad – The watchtower, most popular of all, is named after a female elephant which saved lives of numerous orphaned baby elephants by acting as their surrogate mother. The entry point is through the National Highway at the northern part of Gorumara National Park. The Jatraprasad watchtower is 100 meters away from the Bungalow on the banks of Murti River.

Chandrachur watchtower – If you drive from Murti River towards Khunia through the Chapramari forest, you will come across a road crossing. The road ahead goes towards Eastern Dooars and the road to your left will go to Khunia. If you take the forest road on your right and drive through for about a kilometer you will suddenly find yourself facing large open grassland and a watchtower in the middle of it. This is Chandrachur watchtower of Chapramari forest. There is a small pond and a salt leak. The open ground was originally the location of a forest village, now relocated, named Khunia Basti.

Chapramari: The Chapramari forest, also a wildlife sanctuary, is located near the NH31 connecting the north-east with the rest of India. Chapramari is famous for its Elephant population. It is quite close to the Gorumara National Park.

Jaldhaka River & attractions around it

Jaldhaka River originates near Nathang valley in East Sikkim. It passes through Bhutan before entering India again in the Dooars hills. It forms the border between India and Bhutan for several kilometers till the river enters Dooars plains where it meets River Jiti near Jiti Tea garden. The river flows through Nagrakata, Chapramari and Gorumara forests before meeting River Murti and River Diana and eventually ending its journey in Bangladesh where it meets the mighty river Brahmaputra.

Another small village by River Jaldhaka is Paren. This is located midway between Bindu and Jhalong. There is a forest bungalow at Paren where tourists can choose to stay. Some private tourist accommodations have also come up in the area in recent times

Bindu is yet another picturesque small village by River Jaldhaka and encircled by the hills of Bhutan. A very old dam, called Bindu Dam, is built over Jaldhaka River, here. This is one of the first dams to be built in Independent India.

Bindu, located only 107 km from Siliguri, is a feast for the eyes and a stimulating experience for the mind. The road that leads to Bindu is in itself an unforgettable experience. There is all possibilities of sighting a wild life on the way.

Spread over an area of 759 square kilometer Buxa Tiger Reserve is crisscrossed by numerous rivers and their tributaries. Buxa, with exquisite landscape, is rich in bio-diversity and has a great collection of rare orchids and medicinal plants.

    I Bhitarkanika National Park is completely different from other sanctuaries of India. This Is unspoiled, free from vehicles and relatively free from large crowd. Bird species, mammoth salt water crocodiles, wild boars, spotted deer and vast number of large water lizards – you seem to get in sync and become a part of this surrounding, creating a surreal environment. The resort has taken care to preserve the environment. It has all basic amenities – comfortable bed to sleep, clean toilet, good food, and courteous helpful staff.

    It A nature’s paradise – this is how I can describe Bhitarkanika. Sea. rivers. greenery, and lots of fauna species, and that too all rare ones. Crocs, Olive Ridlays, varieties of kingfisher and birds, python and a lot of reptile varieties – sightseeing on boat and trekking inside forest area – all these make this park unique. Resort Is awesome too with so helpful staff. It is a new resort – still in development stage, but it does provide all basic facilities. A good place to stay overall.
