Chilapata, Dooars

Chilapata

Located 28km from Alipurduar, Chilapata is a dense jungle near the Jaldapara Wildlife Sanctuary at Jalpaiguri District in the middle of Eastern Dooars. Chilapata jungle is well spread out along the banks of Bania and Torsha rivers that bring in the fresh monsoon alluvial, thus support and protect the grassland ecosystem and the astounding diversity of flora and fauna of the park. Chilapata was once infamous for dacoits, but now it is safe and a popular destination for tourists.

Chilapata forms an elephant corridor from Jaldapara National Park to Buxa Tiger Reserve. Chilapata is the home of elephants, one-horned rhinoceros, leopards and wild pigs. Bedsides that more than 20 species of snakes are found in Chilapata and it is also famous for the large variety of butterflies found here. The watch tower in the Chilapata like Kunki along the river Torsha lets you spot the wild elephant, Bison and one horned Rhino and even watch the unparalleled view of the Chilapata forest. Apart from attracting the nature lover through its mystical charisma, the remains of the Nalraja Garh or the fort of the Nal Kings built in the Gupta period in the 5th century CE also known as the Golden Era of India has catch the interest of many archeologist and lured them in the Chilapata jungle. While exploring this site one can encounter the “Ram Guna Tree”, the tree which bleeds. There is a myth that some loyal guards of the fort were transformed into trees while the fort was getting destroyed and till date they are still guarding the remains of fort. The surrounding formidable ambience of the ruin fort is highly enjoyable for the tourists. There is a different charm in each season to relish in Chilapata but the best time to visit Chilapata forest is during March-April when the chances of spotting one horned rhinoceros are greater apart from monsoon season when the forest remains closed.

Dwell in the remains of the Nal King’s fort and learn more about the story behind the bleeding tree or indulge in the boating at Bania River while listening to the alluring sound of the flowing river and watching the awe-inspiring sight of the Chilapata. Chilapata is the place for the people who love to be amidst the nature and blend into the nature while learning more about the historical event. Chilapata is a place to bust all the stress of the urban lifestyle.
