- The people of North Bengal are also a varied lot. The tea gardens brought in Tribals from Bengal and Bihar. The hill stations attracted people from neighboring Nepal, and the partition of 1947 brought in Hordes of Bengalis from Bangladesh.
- The Hills, the jungles and the serene beauty of undulating tea gardens spread to the horizon.

Offbeat Tours - Travel off the beaten track
Have you ever felt like going off the beaten track? Traveling in a train, have you seen a small lonely hillock and imagined a small nest on its top where you could leave, away from the maddening city life? Looking through the glass pane of your AC hotel room, have you ever thought of staying in the forest visible in the distance? Getting close to the nature often means leaving some of the comforts of modern life. Be it traveling on mountain bike, trekking on foot, or sitting on a watchtower for a glimpse of the elusive wild animal. If that is your idea of travel, join us on an offbeat tour through the most exotic destinations of north-bengal. We have all the options to appeal to you, and the best part, all of our tours are customized. So you tell us what you want rather that we telling you what are on offer. Here are some glimpses to help you decide.
The most common trek in the region is Sandakphu, but there are plenty of other options for you to explore. You can go for a trek from Sewak-Loleygaon. This trek starts at the bank of Tista and in 4 days you reach the beautiful village of Loleygaon. You can go for a trek in Samsing including Neora valley national park. The possibilities are endless. more
North-Bengal is bestowed with some of the best natural forests in India. This include Jaldapara Wild Life Sanctuary, Mahananda Wild Life Sanctuary, Neoravalley National Park, Gorumara National Park, Buxa Tiger Reserve and a host of other smaller forests including several reserve forests. In our tour we take guests to all these forests. Check our forest tour package
North-Bengal is the paradise for bird lovers. Numerous varieties of birds, both local and migratory, can be seen in the forests and surrounding places. There are several wetlands and water bodies, attracting thousands of birds of different species. Kulik Bird Sanctuary near Raiganj is famous for the migratory birds that come here every year. There are a large number of other places including Rasikbill, Gajoldoba, Tista and others where you can spend a few days watching the birds.

Ethnic Tourism and Homestay
This is a new concept in the region. naturebeyond actively encourages guests to stay with local villagers and understand their culture. Organised home stay with local community is arranged in the village of Tinchuley near Darjeeling. naturebeyond can also organise home stay in other places in North-Bengal depending on guest requirement.
Regular camps are organised by naturebeyond for students as well as seniors. We have permanent camp resort at Samsing where you can visit any time even if you want to visit this region as part of a small group. more
Mountain biking is one of the safest and the most enchanting ways to visit this part of the world. To start with, you no longer need to miss the beautiful whistle of a hill myna or the innocent smile of the village boy because your car is traveling too fast. You can travel at your own pace and enjoy the surroundings. The mountain bikes also allow you the flexibility to occasionally go out of the beaten track and venture into an uncharted path. We have special mountain biking package tour. But as with other offbeat tours, you can decide on a tour as per your preference and convenience and we will provide you customized service. more
Tista in the mountain provides excellent scope for rafting. naturebeyond organises half or full day rafting tour in Tista. Depending on your requirement, longer duration rafting tour can also be organised. more
