Jalpaiguri district is the largest district of North Bengal. The city has an elevation of 75 m and lies in the middle of the boundless fertile plains at the south of the Himalayas, providing a glimpse of Mount Kanchenjunga.  this narrow stretch of land lying between the Sikkim – Darjeeling Himalayas and Gangetic West Bengal has more than often evoked a sense of both eerie and romanticism in many a heart since the early British Rule. Veined by mighty rivers like the Teesta,Torsa, Jaldhaka, Dyna, Neora, Sankosh etc. this piece of land has been aptly named as the land of ‘Tea, Timber & Tourism’. A major stretch of area is bordered in the north by Bhutan and hence the name – DOOARS/DUARS which mean – Door of Bhutan. The town has been the capital of the Raikats of Baikunthapur. It has also been part of the Duars area of old Kamarupa, which later went into the hands of the Bhutanese. The Bhutanese divided the area into two parts, combining the eastern half with the Goalpara District. The western half was later formed into a new district, Western Duars, which in 1869 was recognised by the name Jalpaiguri. The town is famous for its tea cultivation, which became its main profession during the late 19th and early 20th century, after the Britishers in the northeast region founded the town. The main attraction in Jalpaiguri lay in the large number of important forests.

Darjeeling the ‘Queen of Hills’, is arguably the most popular tourist destination in northeast India. Situated at an altitude of 2134m, Darjeeling, with its exquisite scenic beauty, attracts travelers of varied interest. Darjeeling is the Abode of Lord Shiva and offers spectacular views of Kanchenjunga and the hospitality of colorful Himalayan people. Darjeeling and all her tea plantations lie under the shadow of this snowy Himalayan giant. Darjeeling is just 78 km from Siliguri (the major rail and road head) and is well connected by Bus & jeep.

Originally just a cluster of villages that was administered intermittently by Nepal and Sikkim, Darjeeling grew in prominence during the mid 19th century when, because of its climate, the British first established a hill station there after leasing it from the Chogyal of Sikkim and later discovered that the area was particularly well suited for tea plantations.

Because it was a popular hill station during the days of the Raj, a lovely Victorian town was built among the Himalayan foothills, the remnants of which are still visible around the Chowrasta and Darjeeling remains a popular summer and fall resort for the natives of Kolkata today.

Brilliant red rhododendrons, charming white magnolias, majestic pines and lush green tea bushes covering the entire hill slope welcome us along the way.
