The Dooars or Duars (Bengali: ডুয়ার্স; Nepali: डुवर्स) are the floodplains and foothills of the eastern Himalayas in North-East India around Bhutan. Duar means ‘door’ in Assamese, Bengali, Nepali, Maithili, Bhojpuri, Magahi and Telugu languages, and the region forms the gateway to Bhutan from India. This region is divided by the Sankosh river into the Eastern and the Western Dooars, consisting of an area of 8,800 km². The Western Dooars is known as the Bengal Dooars and the Eastern Dooars as the Assam Dooars.

The Dooars are famous for the tea gardens which were planted by the British. For working in the gardens, they imported labour from Nepal and the Chota Nagpur and Santhal Parganas. The Oraons, Mundas, Kharia, Mahali, Lohara and Chik Baraik are the tribals from these areas.

  1. I believe my father was the manager of newlands tea Estate in Assam in 1954. I would love to travel back there with my brother who was also born in India. We did return together a few years ago but due to in fighting were unable to visit Newlands Tea Estate. Would it be possible to visit now? I am now 65 and have random memories or Newlands. My greatest wish is to return.
