  • Best place for photography & wildlife safari.. Nice hotels and home stay.. All are dood and honest people.. Perfect time is any time of year..
  • It's well-known as Bhutan-Ghat picnic spot. A beautiful place it is. You have to take care of it at the time of using plastic bags/polly-thine/ tharmo-plastics etc.
  • Buxa Tiger Reserve was created in 1983 as the 15th tiger reserve in India. In 1986, Buxa Wildlife Sanctuary was constituted over 314.52 km2 of the reserve forests. A must tourist attraction.
  • Very beautiful place for sightseeing in Dooars. A narrow road through the heavy jungle makes people mysterious & adventures.
  • Once famous for dolomite mining, Buxa was declared a tiger reserve in 1983 and got the status of National park in 1992. Located in the Assam-Bhutan border, Buxa has an area of 745 sq km, the largest forest in North Bengal and has the second highest tiger population in West Bengal after Sunderbans. The park holds maximum number of elephant, Indian bison, leopard, many species of deer and many smaller mammals, innumerable species of birds and reptiles. Buxa is rich with bio-diversity and has a great collection of rare orchids and medicinal plants. Because of inaccessible terrain, some parts of Buxa hills in the Sinchula range are still unexplored. Buxa is one of the oldest settlements in North Bengal. It is 24kms from Alipurduar and 180 km from Siliguri, well connected by both motorable road and railways. Several trek routes originate here.
