If you have been to Gorumara and Jaldapara or Rajabhatkhawa sanctuary then I think you can easily give this a miss.Its good for people who stay close by. However, you get to see wild elephant herds,some bisons,dear and monkeys in abundance!!!

We did a safari while we stayed at Lataguri this time to Chapramari. Enjoyed beautiful nature. But not lucky as far as sighting is concerned. The Guide informed its not a good time. Best time for sighting Elephant or Rhino is November to March.

I visited this sanctuary once and found one of the best place to see wild elephant across Dooars. The location of FRH is excellent but could not get the booking done in advance.

The home of diverse avifauna like green magpie, Indian treepie, hill myna etc and also migratory birds including teals. We are fortunate that we see mammals like elephant, gaur/bison, barking deer and wild boar in this region.
