Gorumara National Park Located in the Dooars region of Himalayan foothills, medium sized park with grasslands and forests. It is famous for its good population of one horned Indian Rhino but unfortunately I did not get glimpse of Rhino. Resort itself booked jeep safari for a ride of approx 2hours and charged me Rs1800/- (including entry ticket).I was bit nervous to go alone inside the dense forest so got my jeep safari shared with a couple stayed in that same resort. #Only open 'Gypsy' vehicles are allowed to ply inside the forest. Journey to Gorumara National Park was so thrilling and fresh. We had a driver along with guide who was guiding us throughout the route, watch towers, revealing scary stories of animals etc.
Early morning safari at Gorumara National Park at Lataguri range.An one and half hour safari. You can spot barking deer, wild boar, peacock, elephant etc. A pleasent ride through jungle.Then return to Bagdogra airport and goodbye to North Bengal.
