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.

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...
