The land of Bengal has been blessed with natural resources and scenic beauty. The abundance of nature and efforts to preserve it are visible at places such as the Jaldapara wildlife sanctuary, located near the city. Spread over an area of 25 square kilometers, the sanctuary boasts of a huge congregation of exotic animals such as the one horned Rhino, Indian elephants, barking as well as spotted deer.
The drive to the sanctuary is so full of life and greenery (green plateaus, tea gardens, sloping fields etc) that one is primed to spend a lifetime at the place. What more, the sanctuary also provides an opportunity to watch some of the most exotic species of birds such as the Crested and Pallas’s fishing eagles, partridges as well as the Jungle fowl alongwith the pythons, deadly cobras and monitor lizards.
