Gorumara, situated in Jalpaiguri distrct in West Bengal, is located near River Murti and Raidak. Gorumara National Park is rich in vegetation with sal trees being most common. Teak, siris and jhair are also found here.
Forest officials speak of presence of a variety of animals in the forest. But realistically speaking, please visit the place only to enjoy nature, greenery, river and rural life of Bengal. Do not expect to see any wildlife except in summer season when visibility of wild elephants become easier; even while crossing highways. Peacock and some deer is what guests should realistically see on jeep safaris. If guests decide to visit Medlahat Watch tower, there are chances they can see some rhinoceros.
Visitors can use Gorumara as a base to explore Jhalong and Bindu on the borders with Bhutan.
Bengali is the main language in Gorumara. However, general population can understand and speak fair bit of Hindi. Some educated people can also understand and speak English.
