Gorumara Experience: Gorumara Forest in Dooars is a beautiful forest where you can introduce people to Jungle Tourism. Actually one forest have been divided into two - Gorumara and Chapramari. The latter is more dense. I would highly recommend it as an weekend destination. You can go with your children and enjoy the beauty of the Jungle.
Food, sight-seeing and shopping: Food - MacDonald and Pizza Huts have not opened any outlet neither have Baskin Robbins (Just Joking).We going in to enjoy the experiences of the Jungle. The whole journey is one long sightseeing.If you are lucky you will sight Rhinos, Gaurs, Elephants.
Activities & things to do: You can do all the activities of Jungle Tourism:
1. Jeep Safari
2. Elephant Safari (From Forest Dept Bungalow)
3. Watch Tower visit
4. Bird watching near Water Hole
Travel tips, How to reach, travel warnings etc: Nearest Rail Station : New Mall Junction
Nearest Airport : Bagdogra
You can also hire a vehicle from NJP/ Siliguri.
Never ever visit the forest with an intention of sighting animals, you will miss the great experience of jungle safari. Always remember you have entered their territory and it is up to them to allow us to see them (Just the opposite in Zoos). Enjoy the whole as a package and you will always feel that when will I visit again.
Please cover the ears of your kids it is very important.
Cover your head and ears for jeep safaris.
Respect the privacy of animals.
