8)Adventure Treks in Neora Valley National Park


When you plan to unveil the unexplored places of North Bengal, or plan your adventure tour in North Bengal, then skipping the nature abode of beauty- Neora Valley national park would make your stay in North Bengal a meaningless tour. As a traveler, you must have the inclination towards the artistic beauty created by the nature’s own hands. In this context Samsing and Kumai, which are the two beautiful places of North Bengal adjacent to each other divided by the river Moorti, are still virgin for many of the explorer’s adventurous experience of North Bengal in India. The place acts as an entry point before entering Neora valley national park. Samsing in the perspective of sustainable eco-tourism has really achieved appreciable results, that can not only be rated on the basis of commercial rankings but also the feasible conditions it has created for the ecological balance of the nature pertaining to the place. Samsing home stays, are the best example of the close relation people have with the nature, and in this endeavor the compliments of the travelers in form of income generation have brought more villagers close to the nature.


When the season for trekking the most beautiful places of India arrives, then Neora valley national park trek in India can be the best educational and adventurous trek of North Bengal in India. Among many trekking destinations of North Bengal, we have pioneered a new trekking destination in Neora valley national park that can either be started from Kumai, a beautiful hilly village adjacent to Samsing or directly from Samsing. The destination can be called Tonotongay, a huge rock standing erect amidst the dense forest of Neora valley national park. The stone has some amazing features, where with the altitude of more than 50 feet it has 7 huge holes on its surface. The holes are cylindrical in shape with smooth inner surface. The local villagers call it “Tongtongay “because of the sound it produces when banged with a wooden stick “Tong”. The villagers believe that the stone has some sacred spirit in it and duly worship it taking it as one of the miracle of nature.


So the jungle trek can be a real adventure where you would really experience the adventure of being in wild away from the sonorous streets of your city. The trek will also be an integral part for the growth of the community tourism in the areas, where you can stay in Kumai Home stays or  Samsing home stays and mingle with the culture of North Bengal before mingling with the culture of wild nature.


;)We herald your arrival with a true sense of traveler to enjoy the beauty of North Bengal with us proclaiming our slogan ……support community, support environment.
