Photographer's Note

Location: Poolside lawn at Sinclairs Hotels & Resorts, Chalsa, Jalpaiguri District (Dooars Region), W.Bengal, India.

Dooars is far away from urban madness. It will come fresh but remote for those coming for the first time. This piece of god's own land is, however, easily accessible. Sparsely inhabited by hospitable tribal people, it draws tourists for its lush green tea gardens and golden sunset over the east's unarguably most enchanting landscape, rich in biodiversity and deep forests. The weather in the region is delightfully pleasant even on warm days. Come monsoon, the refreshing tropical rains will add vibrancy to picturesque Dooars.

Dooars is the gateway to Bhutan and the northeastern states of India. Among its many attractions are rich wildlife, flora and fauna. A visit to sanctuaries like Gorumara and Jaldapara will offer remarkable sights of wildlife, including the one-horned Rhinoceros (an endangered species). Avid birdwatchers will have many exciting birding encounters. The orange orchards at Samsing, white water rafting in the Teesta river, views of the Bengal plains from Phuntsholing in Bhutan, temples, monasteries and nearby villages are worthy of discovery.

Sinclairs Retreat Dooars, perched on Chalsa hillock overlooking the Dooars Valley is the destination for nature lovers for whom learning, appreciating and exploring the bounties of nature are an endless journey. Surrounded by tea gardens with lush green bushes running far, the resort offers a gorgeous view of the Himalayan Mountain range.
