- A trip to Dooars can be planned along with Bhutan or it can be clubbed with Jalpaiguri, Cooch Behar and Siliguri. Special trains connecting all three towns are run during winters by the state government. Mostly, most forests are shut during monsoons, tourists therefore prefer not visiting the town during that phase.
