Buxa & Cooch Behar

How long does it take to reach Buxa from Cooch Behar.
I'm considering to hire a car for a day trip to Buxa and hope we have then enough time to enjoy it.

It should take around 2-3 Hrs (One way). If you hire a car from there u can easily make a Good Day Trip.

4 days and 3 nights for Jayanti, Buxa, and Jaldapara

Thanks everyone for the very helpful and inspiring posts. I have booked my train tickets and now in the process of booking hotels. My first failure is Hollong. I did not get it, already booked. So, I have booked Madarihat Tourist Lodge for November 27th night. I am now looking to book the Forest Department bunglow.

I am reaching New Alipurduar on November 25th morning and returning on 28th November Saraighat Expr. 4:47 p.m. from New Alipurduar.

Please kindly advise on my tour planner and where to stay on 25th and 26th night.

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
well.. sorry for being late to answer ..

1. You have to send the letter directly to following address..

Deputy Field Director,
Buxa Tiger Reserve, Alipurduar, Dist- Jalpaiguri, PIN-736122
mentioning how many days you are willing to stay. They will book and send you a confirmation over post. All money will have to be deposited at the time of the stay and not at the time of booking.
Rates I can't stay.. we stay for official duty @350/- but they may charge outsiders atleast 1200/DBR

Only one FRH and ph no. is 03564256005/255129 of BTR director

Don't call 1st because even you are told there is no booking yet you get one as they wait for last 10-15 days before giving you permission.

2. Militants are a thing of past. absolutely safe now.

3. No WBFDC available..in Rajabhatkhaowa there may be. but dont stay there as it is near the village and outside of the entrance gate.

only in BUXA Fort Dormitory you can accommodate all under single roof. no way you can put all in one in Jainti.. But can try FRH,PHE bunglow and CESC guest house all combined

I want to add some more information to what dip wrote, as I visited jainti recently....
Booking FRH is a difficult tasK for tourists.I tried hard to book but they kept me waiting till the last moment.By then I got confirm reservation at PHE bungalow and decided not to book the FRH.

Now there are a number of private accommodation available at jainti. I will particularly name a hotel ROVERS IN which have enough rooms to accommodate 25 persons.But for that it may be needed to book them advance.
