While travelling to Lava or Lolegaon region from Dooars, one needs to pass through Gorubathan. The place is well-known for its market where people from adjacent villages and tea gardens assemble each Monday.
The name locally known as Sombarey as the every week market is organised on Monday. Gorubathan and its neighboring region offer exceptional natural treasure on show.
