- 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.

Jaigaon is the main gate for entering Bhutan through India. The other side of the boarder is known as Phuentsholing. The twin cities of Jaigaon and Phuentsholing are almost continuous with a Bhutan Gate separating the two towns. Tourists visiting Bhutan by road mostly spend a night on either side of the border as the entry passes are given in the morning from Bhutan.
Jaigaon is the commercial hub of the area. From transporters to wholesalers and distributers flocks the local market catering mainly to Bhutanese clientele. The town itself does not have much to offer in terms of tourist attractions. But one can cross the border and visit the Bhutanese town which is more peaceful and better organised.
Two of the most important forests of Dooars, Jaldapara and Buxa are quite close to Jaigaon. Jaldapara is about 30 kms and Buxa is about 35 kms. Other places of tourist attraction nearby include Garuchira, Bandapani, Raimatang etc. For more options about travelling to the area, please get in touch with us by filling the form below.
Bagdogra, the major airport of the region, is about 155 kms away and takes about three and half hours by road. The major railhead of NJP also takes similar time. Alipurduar Junction is much nearer at 60 kms and takes an hour and a half. The nearest rail station is Hasimara (15 kms) but only few trains have a halt at this station.
