Raimatang Tourist Spots

Raimatang is a newfound tourist destination in the Dooars region and is blessed with an abundance of natural beauties. There are no so-called tourist interest points to see or visit in Raimatang since its natural beauty and serene ambiance is the only thing it has to offer. The astounding beauty of Raimatang can only be appreciated by the true nature lover. Nature here is rich with wildlife and various types of Flora and Fauna. Angling, Birding, and Safari are the few options. The forest used to be home to large Rhinoceros populations. Hunting expeditions in 1892-1904 by the Maharajah of Cooch Behar recorded killing one and injuring Rhinos leading to a dwindling of the population but the sighting and population of leopards and deer have remained the same.

There are few activities apart from angling, birding, and safari which the visitor can partake in for instance trekking toward Lepchakha Village, the unparalleled view of Buxa Forest and river streams flowing through it can be seen from Lepchakha. Raimatang is the safe haven for all the people who want to seclude themselves from the hustle and bustle of the busy city life and spend some quality time amidst the lap of nature. The journey towards this forest village in itself is a mini-adventure traveling through the dense rain forest of the Buxa Tiger Reserve and crossing the Raimatang River it's a journey full of pictorial sights.

Being amidst the lap of nature while taking a stroll by the rocky bank of Raimatang with the backdrop view of the mountain range of Bhutan can be a wondrous sight. Raimatang is the armory of spectacle sceneries within the Buxa Forest offering its visitor a serene ambiance far away from the mundane life, listen to the sound of the flowing river and feel at peace and tranquility while inflating your lungs with the untainted air or spot some wild animal with some astounding view of Buxa forest from the watchtower in Raimatang.

Getting There

By Train: Raimatang lacks a railway station. It relies on the nearest railway stations like Alipurduar Junction, New Junction, etc. The distance from Alipurduar Junction to Raimatang is around 40 km and the distance from New Jalpaiguri Junction (NJP) is 155 km.

By Airport: This tourist destination relies on its nearest airport which is located at Bagdogra near Siliguri. The approximate distance between them is around 170 km. Just after landing at Bagdogra Airport, a rented car will help you reach Raimatang.

By Road: You can quite comfortably reach Raimatang by road. Once you will cross Kalchini, a small village known for its tea gardens and forests. From Kalchini you will be driven through Chuapara, Gangutia, and Mechpara tea gardens to finally reach the riverbed of Raimatangkhola. You have to go through the riverbed to finally reach the village. Hence, during the Monsoon season, it becomes inaccessible.

Raimatang Resort, Homestay and Forest Bungalow

There are many accommodation options available to stay in the village. Homestay is the most popular staying option available. The homestays in Raimatang offer all the basic amenities. To make your stay a hassle-free one, you will be getting facilities like neat and clean rooms, attached western bathrooms, electricity, running water, LED television, geysers, room service, and more.

Best Time to Visit Raimatang
