passes through Chalsa. From here the road to left leads to
Samsing which is about 15 km. The
road to the right goes to Lataguri

Till only recently the small village was
mostly known for the weekly market at Mangalbari Hat and as
a stopover for buses plying in Dooar. In the last few years,
Chalsa has gained in prominence as a tourist destination due
to its proximity to the Gorumara National Park just 10 kms
away. There are private accommodations available near Chalsa
from where you can visit the Gorumara National Park.
Chalsa can be your base for visit to other
tourist destinations nearby including Samsing, Bindu,
Murti etc. Arguably one
of the best resorts of Dooars, the Sinclair's retreat is located
on a hillock close to Chalsa. The place is also famous for
the many tea gardens surrounding it. Apart from the Chalsa
Tea garden, you can also take a stroll inside the beautiful
Ivill tea garden.
