Spendid place for nature lover

Lataguri was our 2nd stop during our summer trip to Dooars. The place Gorumara National Park in Lataguri, is a great place for nature lover and to some one who love bird watching and like to see the wild animals in their natural habitat.
The two main attraction here is Jungle safari and watch tower. We have been to both places but we could see only dear, peacock and wild boar. I could not see any elephant, bison or one horn Rhino, However while coming back from local sight scene next day we were lucky to see a young elephant who was trying to cross the road. We stayed there for two three minutes and watch that elephant.
Our ticket for Jungle safari and watch tower were arranged by the Resort people and that's why we did not face any difficulty. Its about 1800/- for Jungle safari and 1200/- for watch tower. It is important to note that on Wednesday jungle safari and on Thursday watch tower remains closed.
We stayed in Hatihana The Green castle resort in Gorumara and it was the best resort in that area. It was also very close to Jungle safari entry point and there was a local market nearby also. We booked the resort in advance and lucky to get a beautiful cottage in just 3200/- per night. Since we are family of four person including two children aged 15 and 11, an extra cot was provided in the room. The cottage has a small but beautiful baramdah at the entrance. The resorts has a beautiful lawn, Swing pool and food served at their restaurants was tasty and hygienic yet reasonably priced.
We had taken a taxi for local sight scene and covered a vast area around 150 km in a day. We visited Samsing, Santaylekhola, Rocky Island, Jhalung, Bindu, the last village of India bordering Bhutan and Murty river in the route. We were tired but as I said earlier that while coming back from local sight scene we were lucky to have a good 2-3 minute sighting of young elephant which taken off all the tiredness. All the places were lovely and worth visiting.
Even if there is nothing to see we enjoyed the driving in the lush green tea gardens both side of the road and mind it, it is NH 31.
We stayed there for two days but I feel one more day should have been there.
