Siliguri is called as the gateway of North East India. Location of Siliguri is unique as it is the border area of more than three country such as Bangladesh, Nepal, Bhutan and Chaina. Bangladesh Border is just adjacent to Siliguri. it is not more than 8-10 Km. the distance of Nepal Border is not more than 25 Km. where Bhutan is 125-130 Km and Chaina is not more than 150 Km. Siliguri is a place of excellent scenic beauty as North side of Siliguri is bounded by high hills, too many tea garden is located surrounding Siliguri. One may also can take the charm of icy hills like Kanchenjunga range from some places of Siliguri city. Siliguri is the fastest growing city in India. it is a metropolitan city too and the 2nd largest city in West Bengal. The only oil refinery of West Bengal (New Maligaon Oil Refinery) is situated in Siliugir.
