Thanks Arunabh! Long time heard from you - how are you doing by the way? True..The green of the hills and forests are really soothing to the eyes !

Thanks Pawan! Even though I have spent my childhood years in Cooch Behar (and still visit once or twice each year) , my knowledge of the Dooars was very limited. Being close to home I had never really bothered to explore these places. But reading up those travel blogs on North Bengal - and articles by Golam-da or the one by SS-Traveller were eye openers!

Thanks Supratim-da! I am now looking forward to your (forthcoming) Darj travelogue. Most probably we will be in the queen of hills almost at the same time. So, it we can meet up there, it will be a fantastic rendezvous.

I am just getting jealous of seeing people travel around the world.

Sadly, my work profile has becoming very demanding off late and as a result has restricted my leisure trips vastly.

There's so much to do and never enough time !

True, you have probably stated the thoughts of 85%(if not more) of BHPians. But then again I try to think it around, work gives me the money to travel. And like try to maximize the travel time

Best Regards,
Sayak

We chose the later just to try out the route.
One thing I've wondered about from time to time is why no one comments on or takes picture of the canal passing over rivers. Aqueducts - flyovers of the waterworld.
