Duars or Dooars
The Duars, where nature has kept her doors wide open. To the north are the east Himalayas as a natural backdrop. Duars is one of the very few places left in the country where nature is so lavish of her green facilities. The unending stretch of virgin forests is criss-crossed by the river Teesta and her innumerable tributaries. Looking like molten silver against their setting sun, beautiful motorable roads cut through the deep forests rich with wildlife. Mauve hills stand at the end of the graceful plains. The forest looks the way the unknown birds in the sing. The melody of the groves forces you to surrender the sophistries, you so carefully cultured in the city. A happy twilight will bid you retire in the cozy comfort of luxurious log cabins, and leave for you a million dreams of the glorious morrow, that is the duars. A lord that loads you with the gifts of nature.
