Green Forest

It is one of the best forest in Dooars. The weather of Dooars is pleasant. Full of green beauty and sweet voices of birds.

Gorumara National Park is a serene, tranquil but dense forest. If one expect that guaranteed spotting of wildlife then they might get disappointed. The same route and time being used to take you to safari by jeep. Hence the wildlife is intelligent enough to avoid breach in their privacy close to those safari areas. Also on top of that noisy...

First and foremost...If you are going to the forest just so that you get to see animals...Then don't.. you might be disappointed as not necessary that you will see animals all the time...Go there with an open mind to enjoy the serenity..Peace...And beauty of the Forest... On a personal note...Try going to medla watch tower..

Unfortunately I was unable to see any big animals as few elephants were on rampage and the forest rangers were firing guns to chase them. Still nothing can beat the experience of moving through the jungle in an open gypsy. This experience cannot be put into words you can only feel it. My suggestion for this 2 n half hour... More

Awesome and Adventurous! Full of culture. Wish I could have spent more than two days here. Park rangers are friendly and knowledgeable.

Excellent but jeep safari was costly. Elephant safari at Medla, have to stay overnight there. Seldom view of animals like elephant, deer, bison, birds. Jungle was dense.

Gorumara National Park is famous for elephants, rhinos and bisons. It is said that there are very bright chances of sighting these animals during jeep safari or watch tower visit. However, things did not turn out so well in our case. We did one jeep safari and two watch tower visits (Jatraprasad and Medhla). In all these three visits, we... More

Chance of Sighting of animals is not high. Jeep safari means transfer to watchtowers and back. This concept is really terrible here. Knowledge and interest of guides to show you anything are also not encouraging at all. Overall an average experience.
