Gateway To Mother Nature

We Planned Our Holiday For 7 Days. I'm Writing As We Traveled From Calcutta. We Boarded Kanchankannya Express From Calcutta And Got Down At New Mal Junction [ People Traveling From Delhi Can Board Mahananda Express And Get Down At The Same Station]. It's A Nearest Rail Head To Lataguri i.e The Base For Gorumara National Forest & Neora Jungle Camp. Also If Time Permits, U Can Go For Excursions To Samsing, Suntalikhola, Rocky Island, Lava, Lolleygaon , Rishyap, Bindu, Murti, Jhallong. As We Talk Abt National Parks, You Have To Be Extremely Lucky To See Animals. But Natural Beauty Is Awesome. Lataguri Has Lots Of Resorts In Mid-Range Budget Alongside Couple Of 5Star Resorts. So Finding An Accommodation As Per Your Pocket Is Never An Issue. Cars Can Be Arranged Through Your Resort Manager

Your Next Destination Would Be JALDAPARA. It's About 100 Kms From Lataguri. You Have Two Options . 1. Get A Car For Your Transfer. 2. Travel By Train [ That Includes Scenic Beauty Of Dooars]. But..The Trains Are Ordinary Passenger Trains, Which You Cant Book Online. You ll Get Train Timings From Your Resort Manager. Also You ll Have To Buy The Tickets From The Counter Only, Which Opens Only One Hour Prior To Train Arrival. You Must Note That The Roads To Jaldapara From Lataguri Is Quite Bumpy. So It's Better You Board The Train From NEW MAL JUNCTION [ Lataguri] And Get Down At MADARIHAT [ Jaldapara]

Again, You Have Different Ranges Of Resorts Over There. But Unlike Lataguri, Car Owners Are Fishy. So Always Fix Your Deal Before You Board Their Car. I ll Suggest To Book Your Jungle Safari For Jaldapara On The Day You Arrive. Coz The Fellas At Jaladapara Jungle Safari Camp Are Extremely Unprofessional And Worthless. People Have To Stand In A Queue For 3 Hours At Times To Book A 90 Mins Safari. You Must Go For The Morning Safari Which Ends At 08:30 Hrs, Come Back To Resort For Breakfast And Proceed For Bhutan Border, Buxa-Jayanti & Khairbari Zoo..... I Forgot To Mention.... If You Are Traveling By Car To Jaldapara From Lataguri, KHairbari Zoo Comes On The Way... So That Should Reduce Your Travel A Bit [ Which Was The Case In Our Travel Plans]. Once You Are Through Your Travel You Can Board Kanchankannya Exp/ Mahananda Exp From Alipurduar Junction Or HASIMARA
