Gajoldoba is perhaps the best-kept secret in the state and is situated in Oodlabari in the Jalpaiguri district of West Bengal's Dooars region. Gajoldoba is a very beautiful village that is situated between the Teesta River and the Mahananda River.

Gajoldoba is currently primarily well-liked by local tourists, but this will soon change. Shikara rides will soon be added to the village's list of tourist attractions. More domestic and foreign tourists are intended to be drawn in.

Babul Supriyo, Cabinet Minister of Information Technology and Electronics and Tourism, Government of West Bengal, stated, "We will endeavour to make these houseboats better than the ones in Dal Lake, and deliver the best experience to the tourists."

Did you know that Gajoldoba, a quirky town, is a haven for birders? A sizable number of migratory birds are drawn to the enormous, beautiful reservoir on the Teesta River and the surrounding lush woodland each year. The bar-headed goose, greylag goose, cotton teal, Eurasian wigeon, northern lapwing, and grey-headed lapwing are just a few of the birds that birders who are aware of this small paradise enjoy visiting here to observe.

If you are seeking for a unique place to begin the year, Gajoldoba is a hidden gem. This peaceful countryside will welcome you with a mesmerising view of the snow-covered Mount Kanchenjunga far from the noise and bustle of the city.
