**Chilapata is the mid-point of all the below mentioned tourist places with access to every spot within an hour by road, making Chilapata the ideal destination to cover many important places of Dooars in one go.
Chilapata extends to the north east to Buxa Tiger Reserve situated at the foothills of Bhutan. The Buxa Tiger Reserve is the only of its kind in North Bengal and is the home to Royal Bengal Tigers, elephants, several species of deer, birds, butterflies, many of which are the pride of the East-Himalaya bio-diversity hotspot. The classical tour of Buxa touches the destinations of Rajabhatkhawa, Jayanti, Twenty Eigth Mile and Santabari with a short trek to Buxaduar. The ACT organizes homestays in the above destinations along with niche areas of Buxa Tiger Reserve like Lepchakha, Chunabatti, Adma and Raimatang.
Chilapata also extends to the Jaldapara National Park, where the habitat akin to rainforests, is spread over a riverine tract criss crossed by Torsha, Holong, Reti, Malangi, Sissamara, Bhaluka and Chirakhawa rivers and punctuated by rich grasslands. The major fauna of Jaldapara includes one-horned rhinoceros, elephant, deer, wild boar, and other species of mammals, reptiles, amphibians, and birds.
Totopara is a small village on a hillock in Alipurduar district that is home to the unique Toto tribe, a one of its kind in the world. Totos were becoming nearly extinct in the 1950s, but recent measures to safeguard their areas from being swamped with outsiders have helped preserve their unique heritage and also helped the population grow. The Totos are descendants of a fugitive tribe of Bhutan who had been driven out from the mountains by the early Bhuanese-cum-Tibetatans from the period of Sabdrung Nagwang Namgyal. They have fled from that country to take shelter in a cluster in the forests of Dooars. They are of Mongoloid origin.
A unique endeavour in the entire north east to rescue and rehabilitate tigers which were used in circuses. Tourists will also find cubs and grown up leopards which were rescued from illicit animal smugglers on the hills. There are 18 leopards and several tigers in this center. The environment is serene and tourists will find it interesting to watch the animals enjoying themselves in their home.
The breathtaking Sikiajhora river boat-ride lets tourists explore the less trodden destinations of the Buxa forest which cannot be travelled upon foot. Exploring the dense forest area riding upon a boat while listening to the sound of gurgling river streams and chirping of exquisite birds and if lucky, tourists might even spot some wild animals drinking water at the bank of Sikiajhora, the 4 km boat safari is filled with the utter thrill of encountering untamed animals of Buxa forest.
The starting point of Bhutan trip. The India-Bhutan border of Phuentsholing clearly separates two very different peoples and cultures. What one can't miss is the stark contrast between the Indian and Bhutanese sides, and the Phuentsholing market (paradise for shopaholics).
The heritage town of Cooch Behar has a lot of tourist attractions including the Cooch Behar Rajbari also known as the Victor Jubilee Palace, built during the reign of Maharaja Nripendra Narayan, the historical Madan Mohan Bari, Rasik Bill and Raas Mela.
There are some additional tourist places like Bhutan ghat, Lataguri, Gorumara, Murti, Jhalong, Bindu, Rocky Island, Samsing, Suntalekhola, etc. If you wish to visit these places, no need to think twice, we will guide you in this also, and arrange everything, as we have done for our previous guests.
