Chamurchi

Are you looking for a less travelled destination in Dooars? Want to venture less explored forest side? Wish to visit one of the less talked Dooar or Duar of Bhutan? Then your search ends here at Chamurchi. 91 km from NJP the sleepy little picturesque settlement Chamurchi is located on the bank of river Diana. It is very near to a small yet very important town of Dooars, Banarhat. Banarhat is the melting pot of 23 tea gardens.

Chamurchi with gurgling river, virid tea gardens and 3 forests situated at the foothills of the Himalayas of the Bhutan. On a clear day the majestic view of the world's 3rd highest mountain peak Mt Kanchenjungha will surely mesmerise you. You can go for various short trekking around Chamurchi.

Take a 3 km walk through the riverbed of Diana River towards the base of the hill. Surrounded by dense virid forests like Garuchira, Kalapani and Rohiti Chamurchi is blessed with rich flora and fauna. While your trek you might spot Leopards, herd of elephants or Indian gaurs. Last part of your trek will go uphill and end in front of a cave known as Chamurchi Mahakal. Locals consider this cave as a temple of the Lord Shiva. The formation of Stalactite Stalagmite inside the cave will leave you spellbound. This cave is also known as musical stone cave. Tossing a stone inside the cave produces music.

You can witness one of the ten gates (Door or Duar - because of which the name 'Dooars' derived) of Bhutan with West Bengal if you visit the sister settlement of Chamurchi Samtse or Samchi located on the Bhutan side. Visit the Samchi monastery which might be a delightful experience for you.

From October to March is the best time to visit Chamurchi.
