Gorumara National Park, located in the Dooars region at the foothills of the Himalayas, is a relatively small park majorly famous for its Great Indian One-horned Rhinoceros population.

Gorumara National Park lies on the flood plains of the Murti and Raidak Rivers, and the main river of the park is the Jaldhaka River, which is a tributary of the Brahmaputra river system. Thus, Gorumara is a significant watershed area between the Ganges and Brahmaputra river systems. The vegetation of the park includes riverine grasslands and savannah woodlands and is most famously called the Dooars of West Bengal. The park has many watchtowers through which tourists can observe the animals and birds in its premises, and Lataguri, a small town adjacent to the park, is its entry point.

Gorumara, along with other parks in this region, is famous for ecotourism. Many inhabitant ethnic villages surround the park who depend on jobs in the forest department and ecotourism for their income.
