It's a small forest between Buxa Tiger Reserve and Jaldapara National Park, an elephant corridor. Once it was the hunting ground of Koach kings. In ancient past it was an outpost fortress of Gupta Empire, and was the capital of Nal Kings. It has a ruin structure inside the forest, in front of the structure there are few trees, which... More

It was the hunting ground of the Koch Dynasty of Cooch Behar. I have not seen such a dense forest any where. Elephant, bison and rhinoceros are seen in this forest. A special tree named 'Ramgua' is found only in this forest , the gum comes out from such a tree is red and thick like blood.

On our return journey we saw a group of 17 bisons. In between those journeys we stayed 2days in Chilapata and variety of wildlife, beauty of Bania river, early morning view of Kanchanjunga peak made... More

The jungle of Chilapata is quite dense compared that to Jaldapara. Its on the other side of the river Torsa. Jaldapara is known as the grassland & Chilapata is the woodland. Chances of sighting, is more in Jaldapara. You will love the density of the forest. The "Ramsupari" tree is an unique tree you can see, which bleeds when cut.... More
