Dooars: Escape to nature

Here I am again, in the lap of nature – amidst the lush green tea gardens, the beautiful mountain streams and unending dense forests.

The enchanting Dooars!

Located in the foothills of North-Eastern Himalayas.

Interesting fact: The name Dooars comes from the word “Duar” (which means Door) – This region has been the only gateway to the hill stations of North Bengal, Sikkim, Bhutan & the North-Eastern states, and hence the name. 🙂

Here’s some of my favourite photographs I took on the trip:
