Jaldapara Wildlife Sanctuary

Jaldapara Wildlife Sanctuary is situated in the Alipurduar sub-division of Jalpaiguri district in north Bengal, very close to the Bhutan border. The sanctuary, established in 1941, is home to an estimated 60 to 80 mighty Indian one horned Rhinoceros, which can be distinguished from its African counterpart, known for its two horns. Besides the fauna, the jungle of Jaldapara Wildlife Sanctuary presents an amazing sight with dense trees that rise up to the skies and allow very little sunlight to penetrate through. All this gives an eerie feeling to the place and a sense of excitement and uncertainty to the visitors. Jaldapara National Park remains open from September 15 to June 15 and closes down during the monsoons. The best time to visit the park, however, are the months from October to April when the weather remains excellent and animals can also be spotted quite easily.
