This is a beautiful valley surrounded by high mountains. After months of monotonous work schedules, this place will bring the untouched pristine beauty and peace of nature to your heart. The cottages are well built, looks very beautiful both from inside and outside. These are all built of wood and some parts from concrete. There is one large hanging bridge... More

Suntalekhola is located around 6 Kms from the samsing tea estates and is an ideal nature retreat, getting lost amongst the lush green environment, continuous melody of the flowing river water and the chirping of the birds around you.

The last words in Nature Tourism. Experience whisper with forests, mountain streams, and orange orchids.there are two beautiful forest bunglow in Suntalekhola. Suntalekhola is truly an offbeat destination in the Himalayan foothills of Dooars in the backdrop of glistering green and blue sky with touch of everlasting beauty

Very peace and good for honeymoon couple. We stay at WBFDC cottage with 20+ people. It was a official trip but we all like it. Only suggestion there are no light in the street so we can't move from hotel at night.

Very few people have ever heard of it. Fewer go there. That is the beauty of this place. Some stereotype tourists visit this place for 15 minutes or so, take a few snaps (although they are not allowed to enter in the WBFDC cottage premises) as a proof that they have spent money or to post in facebook (which is...
