Chapramari and Gorumara are one big forest, but have been divided for administrative purpose. Chapramari is more dense and larger in size. The Forest Bungalow is also a beautiful place where you can watch animals at night. The other attraction is the Tribal Dance. We were lucky to escape a herd of elephants which was migrating. Should book the Forest Bungalow if you donot get booking at Hollong. Ideal Period of Stay : 1 to 3 Days Sightings: Elephants
