Adjacent to Indo-Bhutan Border and inside one of the prominent national parks in Dooars named Gorumara, Kalipur is a serene village surrounded by a luxuriant forest of Gorumara. To promote tourism, government accommodation named Kalipur Eco Village or Gorumara Eco Village is constructed here.
Those who want to witness the thickly wooded forest of Kalipur and the wild animals like elephants, rhinos, leopards, tigers, bears and others can rent a car to travel to Kalipur from Darjeeling. Himalayan Wheels can provide well-maintained and clean cars at an affordable cost.
Kalipur, being a forested area has lots of attractive things to offer to its visitors and they are as follows:
Built near Murti River, Medhla Watchtower is one of the major attractions nearby. From this watchtower, elephants can be seen crossing the river. While having a great panoramic view of the jungle from the watchtower provides peace to the mind, watching wild animals drinking water from Murti River does the same.
Falls under Gorumara National Park, the beauty of this finest Wildlife Sanctuary and its large collection of wildlife such as Asiatic one-horned rhino, The Royal Bengal Tiger, Indian hornbills, Asian elephants, Indian Wild Dogs, Giant Squirrels, Wild boars, deer, cobra, python, woodpeckers and many more can be seen from Kalipur.
