The diverse prospect of tourism in India is what sets it apart when it comes to scrutinize
the reviews about India
from the best nature travelers of the world. It has amalgamated the true colors
of Asia, and also a true glimpse of it which
can be felt when you visit its north-eastern states. Amongst the so-called
seven sisters that unite the matchless beauty of seven north-eastern states
of India, there is one
adorable unofficial brother that can not be in oblivion- North
Bengal. It’s the model of Eco-Tourism West Bengal in its real
perspective, when it comes to strictly consider the environmental facets of
eco-tourism sites in the world. The offbeat places of North Bengal, that are
seldom decorated in the colorful books that describes the unavoidable tourism
destinations of West Bengal, have primarily now set up as the true model of Social-eco
tourism sites of Bengal.

Samsing is one such destination that has been upcoming as
the replicable tourism site, strictly run with the peaceful collaboration of Forest department and the community forest villagers.
However, the collaboration is not just restricted to Public model but it also
has taken up the model of both the Public-private partnership and the private ownership.
There are many spots in Samsing that again leaves the travelers with their
multiple choices about their preferred destination. So with this perspective if
we look at the renewed site of Samsing- Rocky Island, it takes away the badges
of all the categories of tourism that either includes the high potentiality of
agro-tourism in India.

 The lusciousness
of Rocky Island:

The destination shares the best features of Samsing that no
other spot in Samsing can deliver to its fullest. The glimpses of green
carpeted tea gardens, passing through the window of your car, with the
heralding rain of flashing grass yellow butterflies will tempt you with more
curiosity about the place while you’ll be approaching the destination through
Samsing. It’s an isolated destination so you have to take a right turn before
you take the route to Suntalekhola or fari village. The difference in the
perspective will then axiomatically reveal the place’s beauty. If people ask
for oranges once they reach Suntalekhola, then there is none other place than Rocky Island,
so they come back and take a left turn to cross themselves through the bushy
trees laden with sweet orange mandarins. The houses beside the roads will seem
like beautiful flower vases blooming with their glittering colors and hypnotizing
aroma. The music of the clear water kissing on the uneven rocks and terrains
will give you the sign that you’re nearing to this picturesque destination. The
beauty of Moorti River in its young and dashing stage is
what makes the place adorable with the sight of orange laden tree on its bank
creating a valley for X-mas trees decorated with glowing lights. The hilly
landscapes with terrace fields will remind you of your childhood days when you
made sand hillocks with terracing surface. The huge black stones are another
mesmerizing sight that again seems like nature saving her marbles in a place.
The nights can be spent strolling on the bank of river where you can see the
reflection of moon on the water dazzling with its white streams. The flashy playfulness
of Parris peacock butterflies paddling on the small streams can be the best
captured shot for the nature photographers.

for the nature lovers. The place has beautiful home stays that’ll again turn
your traveling expense into a social contribution towards nature.

the river, the place has huge potential in agriculture. The size of oranges, vegetables
that purely gown under the conditions of natural farming is another additional
aspect that’ll leave you with no comments about your stay in North

Rajesh Bhujel runs the show as a local initiator to save the
beauty of the place. The formation of RPC ( River protection committee), is one
effort that reveals the environmental awareness of the place. He runs a home
stay including his fellow mates like Buddha Lama and Bablu, (who was an outsider
but due to the hypnotizing beauty of the place has made himself a part of the
place). Therefore ultimately if you’re seeking for the best unexplored places
