In the year 1949, the small Garumara Forest was declared as wildlife sanctuary and later in 1992, it was honored as a National Park. Gorumara National park is located in the Dooars region of Jalpaiguri district and shaped on the bank of Murti River. The National Park is a large ecological unit. Garumara is famous for Asiatic One-Horned Rhinoceros. There is a watchtower inside, from where panoramic view of the entire park including Murti Valley is visible. Tower view is the best for observing wild animals especially rhino, deers, bisons, elephants etc. as they regularly come to the salt reservoir below the tower. The place is well connected to city Siliguri. Lataguri is growing tourism township in the dooars adjacent to Gorumara. To meet the growing inflow of tourists, many hotels have come up in the city. Even one can stay at Murti for making trips in the forest.
