BIDHYANG is a freshly discovered jewel of North Bengal and the most promising off-the-beaten-path location, beside the Relli River. Bidyang is like a postcard, with breathtaking scenery and vibrant colours. It is heaven on earth, with its meandering river, endless lengths of towering oak, pine, and fir trees, narrow roads, tiny dwellings, humble population, and misty weather. The day-long chorus of birds, who never weary of chirping and singing from dawn to dark, disrupts nature’s tranquility. The village gradually sinks into darkness, and all is silent. The stillness is shattered by the abrupt night flight calls of flocks of nocturnal migratory birds flying above the village, or sometimes the owl hooting at night or the droning sound of crickets. Here glow worms fly fearlessly, flickering and making myriad patterns against the charcoal canvas of the sky. Enjoy the quiet and tranquility of Bidhyang.
