North Bengal refer to the Northern part of West Bengal. Bestowed with the snow covered mountains, vast stretches of undulating tea gardens, meandering rivers, a wide array of pretty flowers and variety of Himalayan birds, North Bengal has become a popular tourist spot. It's also home to many National Parks and wild life sanctuaries with teeming wildlife.
I've been to Jaldapara National park long ago but after that I couldn't able to make any trip to North Bengal.
One day, while I was going through my Face Book page, I happened to come across an advertisement of a package tour “ North Bengal Calling…..” by one of the Face Book based travel group. It would cover some parts of Dooars and a few beautiful offbeat destinations. I had contacted them, booked the package and made this wonderful trip happen.
The trip started after reaching 'New Mal Junction' station in the morning by Kanchankanya Express from Sealdah Railway station.
Day 1 : NJP to Murti River Camp
Pre-booked cabs, waiting outside the station, took us to the Murty River Camp. Our first destination.
Murti River Camp :
It's situated just beside the Murti river. Small cottages spread over a large area. It has a well manicured lawn, decorated garden and a small pool.
