ABOUT SUNTALEKHOLA RIVER CAMP
Suntalekhola is a small hamlet located at an altitude of 750 meters in the Dooars Himalayan foothills. It is a calm and serene place that we experience upon the silent and vast elevations of great mountains. West Bengal Forest Development Corporation (WBFDC) maintains the Suntalekhola river camp with four tents near the stream of Suntaley. Swiss and Popinjay tents of Suntalekhola River Camp are perched at a significantly higher elevation, giving more privacy and a breathtaking view of the isolated area.
The forest surrounds the river camp that provides the feel of being alone and a sense of calmness. Early in the morning, you can enjoy the peacefulness of nature along with the sweet chirpings of the birds like Orange-bellied Leafbird, White-naped, Grey-Nightjar, Chestnut-crowned Warblers etc. The murmurs of flowing waters of a rivulet breaking over the stones enhances the serene ambience.
Its tent accommodation is the best one for travellers who want to experience the wilderness of the place. There is a suspended footbridge in front of the camp area that chances the tourists enjoy the flowing river’s beauty from there. The refreshing breeze blowing across the hills, sweet fragrance of the flowers, chirping of beautiful birds make the Suntalekhola River Camp a unique place for the tourists.
