The guides were trying so hard to spot some wildlife but the jungle has really faded away. Just spotted a pair of rhinos about a kilometer away from one of the watchtowers

Two entry points of this forest 1. Kodalbasti (Mendabari) and 2. Barobari (Malangi). This forest can be explored either by Jeep safari or by elephant ride. The Chilapata Forest is really a dense forest near Jaldapara Wildlife Sanctuary in Dooars, West Bengal. Few KM away from Hasimara town. It is in between Jaldapara and Buxa Tiger Reserve (BTR). Elephants, Leopards... More

Chilapata jungle struck me as a serene jungle. Not a lot of birds or animals squaking and calling out. But please do not be disheartened by this illusion. The animals are there, very much there and in plenty. We had started off a little before 0500h to catch the first gypsy in to the jungle. We caught glimpses of Peacocks... More

I was not able to see any wild animals. The place definitely has a peaceful ambiance, but I couldn't get the thrill of watching any big animals. Though, somehow, I spotted the Rhino.

We toured extensively inside the Chilapata Wildlife Sanctuary including the Buxa Tiger Reserve in an open vehicle. But, were not fortunate enough to see any Big game.

This thick forest is an extension of Jaldapara mainly which is bifurcated by River Torsa. The vast expanse of the dense forest has given the WB Goverment a nightmare thus the division for better administration. The jungle is calm & serene. It's a good place to spot the Indian One Horned Rhino. This place is also full of butterflies &... More

Chilapata Wildlife Sanctuary is situated on the banks of River Torsa opposite to Jaldapara Wildlife Sanctuary. The forest is very dense and will definitely attract the Jungle Lovers, it is a must see destination if you are visiting the forest of Dooars. The range of thick vegetation with varied flora and fauna and the aura will definitely attract persons who... More
