It is an unknown gem in North Bengal that boasts of an adrenaline-filled adventure strewn with waterfalls, deep jungles, a paradise for Butterfly lovers, River Camping, and Trekking & the best of these is the River Canyon Cave.
The only river canyon trek is done here, which is about 2 km long. This type of trekking is very rare not only in West Bengal but also in India. This trek was invented by Mr. Francis Rai. He is a local mountaineer from Yelbong.
