Visiting the Dooars region and not visiting Gorumara National Park would be like visiting Agra and not visiting Taj Mahal. Gorumara is one of the main tourist attractions when it comes to the tourism around Doors region. Most of the hotels, resorts and jungle lodges are located around Lataguri which is in a stone throw distance from the Dooars safari entry points.
My first encounter with Gorumara was in the year 2011 when I went for the first planned holiday with my family which included my wife and my one and a half-year-old daughter. Since my daughter was quite small thus all my planning’s were kept in mind that my young daughter needed to be fed and rested at regular interval else if she falls sick our holiday will no longer be fun. This is the same reason all the sightseeing tours and the safari tours were planned on separate days giving ample time for us to prepare well.
If you are visiting Dooars then you have many places to see which includes day trips to the hills as well as complete residential experience inside a forest. One of the most common day trips would be:-
Jhalong –> Bindu –> Murti
The first time that I had visited Dooars was in the year 2011 along with my family. That time my daughter was around one and a half years old thus I needed to plan my tour accordingly so that she can be rested as well as fed from time to time.
I have been to Dooars a couple of times, with family, with friends and with office colleagues. People often mistake Dooars to be a single forest location but in reality, it’s quite a huge zone with many individual forest zones and small hill towns which one can visit during day trips.
It was in the year 2011 that I somehow managed to convince my seniors to have our office annual All India IT Conference at Dooars and to make it much better we managed to get a very good forest resort at a steal considering an offseason.
