Jalpaiguri Tourism and Travel Guide

The city of Jalpaiguri is located in West Bengal on the banks of the Teesta River, at the Himalayan foothills. It is a major trade centre and a transportation hub connecting North Bengal to the rest of India. Jalpaiguri is very strategically located with Bhutan in the north, Bangladesh in the south and Nepal not so far off. Significantly, it is situated in the narrow corridor connecting north-east India to the Indian mainland. Though Jalpaiguri has no popular tourist destinations of its own, it is favourably located from the hill stations of Darjeeling and Gangtok. The Gorumara National Park and Chapramari Wildlife Sanctuary are also in the vicinity. The city of Jalpaiguri is located in an interesting topography criss-crossed by rivers and hills. Even with a mixed population, the place has cultural harmony. Jalpaiguri has an art gallery, town clubs, parks and a few temples. The beautiful Teesta River is a sight and more alluringly the city is surrounded by tea cultivations along the hill slopes in the periphery that make for a picturesque view.
