- The people of North Bengal are also a varied lot. The tea gardens brought in Tribals from Bengal and Bihar. The hill stations attracted people from neighboring Nepal, and the partition of 1947 brought in Hordes of Bengalis from Bangladesh.
- The Hills, the jungles and the serene beauty of undulating tea gardens spread to the horizon.

Chapramari is a forest in Dooars area of North Bengal. The forest is a continuation of the Gorumara forests. The two forests are separated by the Murti river which passes through the otherwise continuous forest. Whereas Gorumara is a National Park, Chapramari is only is a wildlife sanctuary only. For most tourists the distinction between Chapramari and Gorumara is only theoretical as they may stay in a resort close to Gorumara but visit Chapramari for sightseeing tours or vice versa.
As in case of other forests of Dooars, wildlife sighting remains the main attraction for most tourists visiting Chapramari. There are a number of forest safaris available that take tourists inside the forest. Sighting of Elephant, Spotted Dear, Barking Dear, Rhino and Gaur (Indian Bison) is the most common. The area close to Murti River is also quite popular as picnic spot for the locals.
As you pass through Dooars by the arterial National Highway 31, you will reach Chalsa crossing about 2 hours or 60 kms from New Jalpaiguri rail station. From here till Nagrakata (about 12 kms away) on both side of the road you will find the Chapramari forest. The forest area starts immediately after crossing the Murti river and continues till you reach the Jaldhaka river. Somewhere midway on this road you will reach Khunia crossing. From here the road to your right will pass through the core area of the forest towards Murti and Gorumara National Park. The North bound road from here will reach the nearby forest bungalow and beyond it will take you to Bindu – Jhalong area of Dooars.
