Gorumara National Park

Gorumara National Park one of the best National Parks of Dooars. Sighting frequency in Gorumara historically has been more in comparison to other National Park’s of Dooars, the reason behind this is probably the size of the park – 80 sq km, much smaller in comparison to Jaldapara and other wildlife destinations of Dooars.

Jaldapara National Park

Drained by rivers Torsa, Malangi, Hollong and Buri Torsa, the park provides extensive grassland which is the abode to a wide variety of mammals, amphibians, reptiles and avian life.

Jaldapara is the home to one-horned rhinoceros and one of the last few refuges of this endangered species. Elephants, Gaur, Deers, Leopard, Wild Boar and host of avian species like Hornbills, Eagles and Raptors play their games at Jaldapara.

Buxa Tiger Reserve

The park lies in Alipurduar district of West Bengal. Its northern boundary runs along the international border with Bhutan. The Sinchula hill range lies all along the northern side of BTR and the eastern boundary touches Assam.

Buxa Tiger Reserve was established under Project Tiger in February 1983 and was the 15th Tiger Reserve of India. In 1992 Buxa was conferred the status of National Park. The name Buxa Tiger Reserve was coined from famous Buxa Fort.

Dolomite extraction used to be the main economic activity, but after the declaration of Tiger Reserve, it has come to halt.

About 67 mammal species are reported to thrive in the reserve, including 21 endangered species. Indian Gaur, Leopard, Elephant, Barking Deer, Sambar, Hog Deer and Wild Dog has found refuge at Buxa. The Chinese Pangolin and the reticulated regal python are endemic to the Buxa forests.

One of the oldest organizations of India – Bombay Natural History Society conducted a survey on birds of Buxa which mentions 500 different species are present at Buxa Forest. This year from 6th – 9th January 2019 Bird Festival was conducted at Buxa. Eminent wildlife photographers, naturalists and tourists gathered in huge numbers. Avian species like Great Hornbill, Serpent Eagle, Brown Fish Owl, Honey Buzzard, Scarlet Minivet, Hooded Pitta, Indian Roller are often seen at Buxa.

Sikiajhora

Sikiajhora is called the “Sunderban of Noth-Bengal”. Sikiajhora is a rivulet which meanders through the Buxa Tiger Reserve and enters the plains of Dooars to meet another stream Bala, which too originates from the Jayanti Hills and Buxa Forest.

There is a small park maintained by local women group. You can take a tour on a country boat here on a narrow channel (which is the Sikiajhora stream) and go deep inside the forest, watch birds, reptiles and sometimes even wildlife from the boat.

Full day sightseeing to places like – Murti, Samsing, Rocky Island, Suntalekhola, Matelli, Laligarus, Jhalong, Bindu and Lal Jhamela Basti.
