Hotel Profile

Dooars also spelled Dwars or Duars, region of northeastern India, at the foot of the east-central Himalayas. It is divided by the Sankosh River into the Western and Eastern Dooars. Both were ceded by Bhutan to the British at the end of the Bhutan War (1864–65). The Eastern Dooars, in western Assam state, comprises a level plain intersected by numerous rivers and only slightly populated. The Western Dooars lies in northern West Bengal state and is a portion of the Tarai, a lowland belt linking the Himalayas and the plains region in the district ofJalpaiguri and Cooch Behar. The altitude of Western Dooarsranges from 90 m to 1750 m and moist climate is favourable for tea gardens.

The name Dooars (“Doors”) is derived from the several passes that lead from the region into the Lesser Himalayas. In West Bengal Dooars is the gateway of Bhutan, Sikkim,North Bengal North-Eastern states.

To its north stands the east Himalayas as a natural backdrop. A vast texture of dense forests teeming with wildlife, unending tea gardens, criss crossed by Teesta, Raidak, Torhsa, Jaldhaka and Kaljani Rivers, interspersed with sleepy or busy settlements ofTribals, Gorkhas, Sikkimis and Bhotias makes it an interesting destination to visit.
