you should stay in Hallong rather than madarihat.. your 3 daystay atjainti seems a bit longer than usual,, u can cut it short by 1 day and add chilapata in that.. otherwise u add 1 day in hallong and see chilapata from there..

lataguri is fine ..

I visited Jayanti recently with my wife and three and half years old child.I stayed there at PHE bungalow.Here are some informations which may come useful for future visitors.
Jayanti though not far from Alipurduar,is a remote place and except vodafone signal at night you will not get any other mobile signal.But if you hire a car from Alipurduar and keep it with you during your stay at jayanti you would not face much problem as all basic facilities except medical are available there.there are 3/4 local cars but it would be better to bring one from outside.
Hire sumo or similar car because maruti van can not reach to the point a sumo will reach at mahakal and buxa fort routes.you have to walk more in case of a maruti van.It is also not safe for jungle safari.
Best place to stay at jayanti is undoubtedly the forest rest house.the surrounding is great.next best is CESC guest house ABAKASH.PHE bungalow is also very good.Staffs are there very friedly and cook for the tourists if requested.Generator and aquaguard(water purifier) facilities are also available.
All the private accommodations available are in side the village and surroundings are not very clean.however,booking forest or PHE have risk of cancellation due to official requirements.
Few local guides are now offering package.If you take one you have to pay more than if you book every thing separately.Also guide may arrange program the way which suits his schedule(they handle multiple customer).There are no dearth of guides and you can get one from raja bhat khawa or jayanti bus stand easily and cheaply.Every one is equally good.
Booking address of Forest and PHE are available here.I am giving ph no. for booking rovers'inn whose appearance is most decent among private accommodations.Rent starts from rs 1000 which is negotiable.9434754349,94341102 45.
I am attaching few photo also.

Hi Santos.
Jayanti is really a lovely place...for those who love to explore forests.
Its not necessary that you have to go there with a group...I visited Jayanti alone in June2009, and stayed there for 6 days. I m basically into birdwatching and wildlife photography...and i spotted many varieties of forest birds including the Great Hornbill and Asian Fairy Bluebird.
And i had encounter with wild elephants twice in the forests...near the Bala river. Unfortunately i cudnt spot the leopard..as its avery secretive cat and generally comes out at night. I spotted Indian Bisons during jungle safari...and also got a lone Barking deer near my resort at Jaynati.

If you go alone, then you have to take a guide while even while walking along the mainroad that runs thru the forest..becoz the entire Jayanti area falls in elephant zone..and so there is always the chance of an encounter with elephants here...otherwise this area is a safe place.

I wud suggest all nature-lovers to spend a few days at Jayanti-Buxa if they wana enjoy the true wilderness...

PHE bungalow is in an excellent place and offers a panoramic view of the mountains, river and forest. Though we stayed at Jagadish Oraos guest house which is practically on the river bed..9800602717. This guy is also a man Friday when jayanti is concerned and he helps immensely in terms of arranging safaris and selecting guides.. he also raves up simple yet delicious grub

Hi marshaltit

Thank you for your info sharing, I am planning to go to Jayanti with my family and friends (5 adults + 1 kid) during the Lakshmi Puja this year, please advice how safe is the place? Where from should I get the vehicle at New Alipurduar? Dipnarayan gave me the idea that the place is quite safe.

@Marshalltit
You will see plenty of vehicles around the station or near the bus stand which is about 1 km from the station. dont worry about the vehicle and safety of Jainti. It is very very safe..and so is buxaduar and around..

Hi mons09
sorry for the delayed reply.I didn't login in between. jayanti is indeed a safe place as Deep said.but communication is still a problem. I will recommend you to contact a guide in advance who will arrange vehicle and other things for you or come with your own vehicle hired from outside.it is true that there are few local cars but you may not get them at you wish.I found that many tourist were visiting there under package tour provided by some local guides who have arrangement with resorts and vehicles.though availability of accomodation is sufficient it is better to have advance booking to avoid any problem.

Jayanti/Buxa- Acco & Security

My advice is that u book at jainti forest bunglow as early as possible.
Deep,

I am planning to visit Jayanti, etc. in Mid. Dec. I am planning to stay one full day at Jayanti, next day trip to Buxa, any other place, but night stay at Jayanti. On 3 rd. day stay there in Morning and leave at mid day to board K Kanya from APDJ. Many thanks for your advice regarding Kanchan Kanya route. I was searching hard for a scenic rail route.

Could you please guide me on following:

1. Can I book FRH at Jayanti by letter and sending draft? What are the exact steps for booking? Do I have to call first and then send draft? Pls. send me the exact postal address and telephone No. for FRH booking. Are there two FRH and if so which one is on river bank?

2. There are certain reports (e.g. Wikipedia)that Bodo militants, timber mafia are operating in the area. So pls. let me know if there is a threat to tourists from these type of people. I wish to visit very much and do not mind the threat of elephants, but scared of militants.

3. Is there a WBFDC acco. also?

Many thanks
