We booked our Dooars Tour Package in December, 2019 with NatureWings and it was a fascinating experience. It was the first time that we travelled for Dooars after much postponement. The best time for Dooars Tour Plan is from October to March as the weather remains very pleasant during that time. Our Dooars Tour started after reaching Bagdogra. The first place that we went in our Dooars Trip was Lataguri. We did Jeep Safari in Gorumara National Park on the next day. We stayed there for 2 nights. Our next stop during the trip was at Jaldapara. We did the amazing Elephant Safari in Jaldapara. This was the first time we travelled Dooars so we were very excited and Naturewings also made very good arrangements throughout our entire trip. We shall recommend everyone to travel Dooars with NatureWings for the best experience.
Me and my wife went to Dooars in the 2nd week of February 2020 and this our first experience of a jungle safari. We were confused about the Dooars Tour Plan. We decided to go on package within a very short notice. So I contacted NatureWings. They planned the entire Dooars Trip for me in couple of days, confirmed my hotels, and confirmed a car for us for the entire Dooars Tour and plan out a detail trip for me for 6 days.
On the first day of our Dooars Tour, we went to Jaldapara. We did Elephant & Jeep Safari during the tour. We visited Buxa-jayanti, Gorumara and in between visited some interesting places like Coochbihar Rajbari, Buxa Fort, Rajabhatkhawa. Our entire tour was well planned by NatureWings for every location. I will surely recommend NatureWings for their excellent service.
We, a group of 6 people from 3 families went for a Dooars Tour. We booked our Dooars Package Tour through a Kolkata based Dooars Tour Operator - NatureWings. They provide us a good stay, good food throughout the tour. We visited Jaldapara and Lataguri. Jaldapara tourist lodge we booked by our own and Lataguri hotel and entire transportation we booked from NatureWings. In our Dooars tour we did Elephant Safari at Jaldapara and it was arranged by the NatureWings Tour Coordinator at lataguri Mrs. Mousumi Raha, She helped us to book the Jeep Safari. She and her team was continuously in touch with us throughout our dooars tour. Overall our experience was nice and memorable. We are eagerly looking forward to do Bhutan Tour with NatureWings. Best wishes to NatureWings from our group.
Me, my wife and my parents had dooars tour with NatureWings. Our Dooars Package Tour was for 3 Nights and 4 Days. We stayed at Hallong Eco Resort (Private) and The Reserve Gorumara at Lataguri. Me and my wife enjoyed the Elephant Safari at Jaldapara as we spotted lots of famous one horn Rhino, Wild Elephant, Barking Deers and lots of peacock. We also visited Samsung, Jhalong, Bindu, Suntalekhola in the lap of Himalaya. The fresh air of hills and jungle mesmerize our heart. Evening time we enjoyed local tribal dance organize by our resort. We also enjoyed Jeep Safari in our dooars tour planed by our tour operator. Thank you team NatureWings and Mousumi Madam for a wonderful hassle free Dooars tour package.
My family and I visited Jaldapara during winter last year with Naturewings. We stayed at the Holong Eco village resort. It was a beautiful resort very close to the forest. Naturewings arranged for all the accommodation and traveling and paid attention to every detail of our trip. The highlight of our trip was the Elephant Safari in Jaldapara National Park, where we were right in the vicinity of a one-horned rhino. From Jaldapara, Naturwings also arranged a day sightseeing trip to (insert places). It was a very smooth trip and we are grateful to nature wings for it. We highly recommend it.
I recently went to Dooars Trip, right before the lockdown. Our entire trip was planned and organized by Naturewings. From car pickups to hotels, to sightseeing, Naturewings looked after our every need. Jaldapara in February is very beautiful. It has comfortable weather, and the forest looks magnificent. We stayed at the (hotel name) which was very comfortable. The Jeep safari and elephant safari have to be booked by customers, themselves. However, nature wings provided us with all directions on how to go about it, which made our trip a lot easier.
From Jaldapara, we went for sightseeing to (insert place) arranged by Naturewings.
It was a great trip and we will go with Naturewings again for our next Sikkim or North Bengal Tour.
Finally three friends family decided to explore forest in last winter and close to Kolkata, Dooars was the best forest destination. Based on inputs from one of our friend, who already visited Dooars suggested NatureWings as they are the best for the Dooars Tour Package. So we called NatureWings and they guided us with a very well planned 5 nights 6 Days program. Our Dooars Tour started from New Mal Jn (NMZ) Railway Station and as per the plan, our car was waiting just outside the station. We then proceed to Lataguri and in the afternoon we took the Lataguri Jungle Safari by Jeep, where we spotted Wild Bison, Wild Elephants and few peacocks. Next day, we took the whole day excursion to Jhalong, Bindu, Paren, Rocky Isalnd, Samsing and SultaniKhola. Next Day we went to Jayanti forest inside Buxa Tiger Reserve. Jayanti homestays are very nice just in front of Jayanti River. Next day morning we took the Chilapata Jeep Safari, the jeep entered into very deep jungle, where no sun light reaches and after completing Jeep Safari Completes, we proceed to the Jaladapara Forest, where NatureWings arranged a nice resort, Hallong Eco Resort. From the resort back gate, we entered into the forest for an afternoon walk. The best part of Dooars Tour was the Elephant Safari in Jaldapara and we took at 5 am slot. It was an amazing experience as Elephant entered into the Jeep jungle and we could see a most coveted Indian One Horn Rhino from stone throwing distance. A great thank you to NatureWIngs for arranging such our wonderful Dooars Trip and will certainly recommend my friends and families to NatureWings.
