If you are a nature lover, one of the best areas to visit in North Bengal (LaliGuras Picnic Spot) is the lower hills region and the foothills flanked by three beautiful rivers – Chel, Neora and Murti in Western Dooars. The major tourists’ spots on the Dooars belt are all found in this terrain. These include Murti River Resort, Garumara Forest, Chapramari, Lataguri, Chalsa, Samsing and its adjoining attractions Rocky Island, Suntalikhola and Lali Guras – serene, lonely and flanked by green forests, blue rivers or hills on all sides.
As a picnic spot, one of the biggest attractions undoubtedly is Lali Guras (also pronounced as Laali Guras), situated above the Murti river valley near Samsing.
Samsing is located at an altitude of 3000 feet above Chalsa, a tiny hamlet eight kilometers away from Malbazar. Samsing is surrounded by tea gardens, forests, hills and valleys, and witnesses foggy weather with high rainfall during the monsoons.
Lali Guras is located en route to the valley below and attracts a large number of tourists. Along with Rocky Island and Suntaley Khola, Lali Guras is a wonderful picnic spot.
Lali Guras lies near Suntaley Khola and the Murti river viewpoint about three kilometers from Samsing. Flanked by the river and a serene, green landscape, the spot offers the perfect relief to weary city dwellers looking to escape from the drudgery of their daily mundane routines.
The view of the blue water of the Murti river is a delight to tourists while the lonely green, meadows and lush green tea gardens provide a soothing view to your eyes. From the Samsing View Point, one gets an excellent view of the long stretch of the Murti river flowing below through a valley with hills flanking its two banks.
In winter the place is a preferred haunt of rare migratory birds. Lali Guras offers the perfect choice for anyone looking for a day’s relief in the pure lap of nature.
