Awesome Place to visit...

The place is great for bird watchers with a variety of migratory birds making their way from around the world, especially in winters. For those of you who are not so much into birding, spend a couple of days away from the busy city life and enjoy the calmness. The Teesta barrage constructed to boost irrigation is ad added attraction. For lunch enjoy the local catch from the fishermen cooked fresh right in front of you...
