Upon arrival at the railway station/airport, you are received and driven to your hotel/resort at Lataguri. This place is close to the Garumara National Park. We prefer to put up our guests in hotels/resorts which give you a feeling of being either in the forest or in a tea garden. Late in the afternoon, we take you to get a feel of the Forest.
Depending upon the availability of tickets/entry passes, we would take you to any one of the following watchtowers at: Jatraprasad (Evening trip accompanied with tribal dance) Medla Chukchuki, or Jungle Safari which includes a visit to the Mahakal water reservoir.

Today we would take you for an excursion to Murti, Jhalong and Bindu. Murti is a small village by the side of the Murti River. It is an ideal picnic spot where one can enjoy the scenic beauty. Lucky ones can even catch a glimpse of elephants and other animals by the side of Murti River when they come to drink water.
Jhalong is situated on the bank of the river Jaldhaka on the Indo-Bhutan border. It lies at the foothills of the Himalayas, on the way to Bindu in Kalimpong sub-division. Jaldhaka Hydro Electricity Project on Jaldhaka River is a major attraction in this area. Bird lovers can enjoy a varied collection of hill birds as well as migratory water fowls here. Bindu is the last village of West Bengal before one enters Bhutan. It is a beautiful valley on the bank of the river Jaladhaka. This river serves as a natural physical boundary separating West Bengal and Bhutan.
Bindu is also famous for its cardamom plantations. Visit to this place is an experience worth remembering. Return in the afternoon and visit the "Nature Interpretation Center", which gives information about the flora and fauna of the Dooars area.
After the excursion, leave for Kolakham.
