The location of the Lodge is quite unique, it is neither in the hills or in the plains, but at the junction of the two. The steep hills goes up just a stone’s throw away from our accommodation, whereas the Dooars plains is visible just a few hundred meters away. The unique location allows for unique comfortable weather throughout the year. Summers heat never becomes unbearable. In fact in the village very few houses use traditional ceiling fans even today. Even if the days are warm, by the evening cool breeze makes the weather comfortable. Winters are cold but not as much as you would expect in the hill stations. It rains quite heavily here as the cloud from the plains first receives resistance from the hills just above.
