Jalpaiguri Tourism

Bordered by Bhutan in the north and Bangladesh in the south, the name 'Jalpaiguri' translates the 'Town of Olive'; jalpai meaning 'olive' and guri meaning 'place'. The history of its naming goes back to 1900s owing to the rich plantations of olive. The city is the district headquarters if Jalpaiguri district in West Bengal. Stripped by tiny rivulets and dotted with small hilltops, Jalpaiguri is a tiny tourist town with endless vistas of tea plantations, gushing streams and elaborate rice farms, and is known for its heavy downpour. Primarily a rural district with 80% rural population mostly inhabited in forest villages, the town is popular for its untouched beauty and natural landscape.

While being a beautiful tourist destination, it is comparatively less crowded and undisturbed in nature. Jalpaiguri has tea gardens as far as your sight goes, rice plantations, hills covered with lush green bushes, breathtaking landscape and a small, closed town for you to discover.

- If visiting Buxa National Park, start early. Wear sport shoes and carry ample light snacks and liquid in a bag pack with you.- While visiting Panjhora, be careful by the lake and watchful with the wild animals.- Visit to Jalpaiguri can be clubbed with a visit to Dooars.
