dooars wildlife - Animals/Nature

Ref : TOUR-5/ Dooars / W.B

JALDAPARA WILDLIFE SANCTUARY a lovely natural wilderness strewn with a number of perennial streams and flanked by the rivers Malangi and Torsa from the east to west. 65 km of lush panorama of mighty trees interspersed in a sea of tall grasslands. This is Jaldapara, 121 km from Siliguri, the permanent abode of wildlife and that of the one-horned Indian rhino. Here also roam the Indian bison, elephant, tiger, birds and reptiles.

The sanctuaries at GORUMARA and CHAPRAMARI also have forest bungalows.
Six m from Nainaguri is the Jalpesh temple housing in its sanctum a
Sivalingam called ‘Anadi’ (without a beginning and hence the original). The
temple, with a dome like a mosque, was built in 1665.

There is a big Shivratri fair near the Jalpesh temple early in the year, and
there is a Gopastami fair at Patakata, Jalpaiguri in October-November.


From Kolkata to Bagdora by air of to New Jalpaiguri / Siliguri by train.
From Siliguri to Madarihat by rail or road. From there Jaldapara Wildlife
Sanctuary is quite near.
