Serving as a crucial link between mainland India and the North East, Siliguri (Shiliguri) serves as a pitt-stop of immense variety when heading to hillstations like Gangtok, Kalimpong and Darjeeling. From the spiritual calm of monasteries to tracing scientific development in a Science Museum, from malls to a wildlife sanctuary and from natural beauty to man made beauty, Siliguri (Shiliguri) has it all and more.

Famous for its tea estates, Siliguri (Shiliguri) (Shiliguri) is the Gateway to North East India as it lies on the thin strip of land connecting the mainland and the latter. Tourism is one of the capital industries here, others being Timber, Tea and Transport. Offering scenic views of the lofty Kanchenjunga mountain, the landscape of Siliguri (Shiliguri) (Shiliguri) is perhaps the most refreshing in India. The Mahananda Weir Wildlife Sanctuary is located nearby and is a haven of flora and fauna. The Science City makes for an interesting educational excursion, displaying various scientific experiments and equipments. The Coronation Bridge is a must visit, for it is a fine example of architecture and can be called art in steel itself. Apart from the local artifacts and handicrafts, one can also buy cheap China-made electronics here. The Salagura and Kalchakra Monastery are important Buddhists centers here.
A variety of animals and birds make their home within the 100 sq km area of jaldapara wildlife sanctuary. Plans are afoot to merge the sanctuary with Buxa Tiger Reserve under the title of National Park to ensure a better conservation effort. The best way to explore Jaldapara is by taking the one-hour elephant safari. A maximum of four people are allowed on each elephant. The safari from the Tourist Lodge at Madarihat is subject to the availability of elephants. The park authorities don’t provide vehicles for safaris, so you’ll have to rent one from the Madarihat Lodge or a tourist agency. A forest guard must accompany the jeep.
The best time to visit Siliguri (Shiliguri) are the dry seasons : March-May and October-November.
