Situated at a distance of about 110 km from Darjeeling, Jalpaiguri can make one's jaw drop at first sight. The lush green forest cover, and large tea farms, along with gushing rivers through narrow ridges, coupled with the grand Himalayas in the background make it a paradise. The place is indeed a goldmine for tourists.
