This forest is famous for elephant. I saw group of elephants while traveling through the state highway, which is passing through the forest. Also saw an wild single elephant standing on the road. That was really a scarry one.

Very good place, Chapramari Wildlife Sanctuary is under Gorumara National Park range. There are also 3 ranges(Pardon me I forgot the names).If you want to cover total 4 place then you have to stay over there and don't worry you will find a hotel/resort at Gorumara.

I visited this sanctuary once and found one of the best place to see wild elephant across Dooars. The location of FRH is excellent but could not get the booking done in advance.

The home of diverse avifauna like green magpie, Indian treepie, hill myna etc and also migratory birds including teals. We are fortunate that we see mammals like elephant, gaur/bison, barking deer and wild boar in this region.

I consider Chapramari as one of the popular forests in West Bengal for watching wildlife especially elephant, bison, wild bores, peacock etc. The watch tower is the best place to watch the animals, both in the morning and the afternoon. Forest Department run accommodation is available in the forest, with prior booking. Jeep can reach upto the forest accommodation and... More

I enjoyed my trip to Chapramari Forest with my family. There is a very well maintained Salt Pit where you can very easily find many wild animals of the forest. Bisons, Elephants, Deers and various species of birds.

This place is located very near to the highway. It is lush green and has magnificent sights. Although it is very near to the villages but the locals informed us that there was never any accident caused due to animals. In fact I got a feeling that wildlife here was disturbed due to human presence.

Being a Nature lover, I wanted to enjoy this location during Monsoons. Again stayed at the Forest Bungalow for 2 nights. This was a completely different experience. The days were reasonably dry, but evenings brought torrential rains, with its sound on the metal roof, a constant roar!! And the play of the fireflies! Millions of them everywhere!

It's situated in North Bengal ( The famous northern region of West Bengal ) . Amidst green is there to settle shelters of cheetahs , elephants , bison , deers etc. Also, you will love to see peacock in rain.
