This place is on way from Bagdogra to Sikkim and is a real dense forest, which has some rare species of birds and good number of elephants. One can stay here for hours and breathe fresh air.

I visited this place during May 2016 for bird watching and it was a very pleasant and memorable walk through the sanctuary. We have taken a guide from Latpanchar guest house and walked down.

Except during rainy season when the sanctuary remains closed for tourists because of the mating season of animals ,this place is a wonderful getaway from busy life.
