Jhalong(36 km from Lataguri) is situated on the bank of the river Jaldhaka on the Indo-Bhutan border. It lies at the foothills of the Himalayas, on the way to Bindu in Kalimpong sub-division. Jaldhaka Hydro Electricity Project on Jaldhaka River is a major attraction in this area. Bird lovers can enjoy a varied collection of hill birds as well as migratory water fowls here. Visiting Jhalong is one of the best part of the Monsoon Dooars Package.
Bindu(47 km from Lataguri) is the last village of West Bengal before one enters Bhutan. It is a beautiful valley on the bank of the river Jaldhaka. This river serves as a natural physical boundary separating West Bengal and Bhutan. Bindu is also famous for its Rubber and cardamom plantations on the way. Visit to this place in Duars is an experience worth remembering.
Thereafter we set off for the Murti River trail. Murti is a small village by the side of the Murti River. It is an ideal picnic spot where one can enjoy the scenic beauty. Lucky ones can even catch a glimpse of elephants and other animals by the side of Murti River when they come to drink water.

Samsing is a tea estate in the Dooars, a small locality of about 100 houses which has grown around the tea gardens. On the top of the hill there is a beautiful Guesthouse. The silence of the place is disturbed only by the noise of the gurgling river Murti, which flows about half a kilometre below. The drive to Samsing is through lush green tea gardens and the descending mist on the tea gardens during the monsoons is a sight to behold. It is a great spot to watch birds.
Suntalekhola or Suntaley Khola (also Suntaleykhola) (41 Kms from Lataguri) is a small village and a tourist spot in the Darjeeling District of West Bengal. The altitude of the place ranges from 650 to 950 m. It gets its name from a small stream: Suntaley Khola. In Nepali, Suntaley means orange and khola means stream. This place is nearly 5 km from Samsing.  The green patch on the left side of the way to Suntaleykhola is amazing and holds many rarities of birds and butterflies.
After visiting Samsing and Suntalekhola, we drop you to NJP station for your onward journey. Your short trip to Dooars ends with sweet memories.
