Hello everybody, greetings for New Year.

I am doing a plan for Chilapata, Jaldapara and Jayanti in this January.
Our train will reach New Alipurduar station near 11.00 am and we will hire a car from there and want to do chilapata jungle safari with this car in the late afternoon, after that we will stay at Jaldapara private hotel.

My query is:-
Is outside car allowed in Chilapata jungle for safari?
Distance between New Alipurduar and Chilapata, how long it will take by car?
Any suggestion for private hotel in out site Hollong (Jaldapara).

Yes, outside car is allowed in Chilapata jungle safari. But you need to make the permit for entering the jungle and you need to take a mandatory guide with you. I have been there last week and heard that at 1 time only 12 cars can enter inside so make sure you make the permit as soon as you can. Also i would recommend doing the afternoon safari over there.
Not sure about the distance from New Alipurduar and Chilapota. We stayed at Malangi Lodge at Baradabri and from there Chilapota was around 20 mins by car. In jaldapara i stayed at the WBTDC Lodge. I would strongly recommend this as an option. Other than this i spotted some private hotels beside the highway & madarihat station. Looking at these from outside not sure about the ambience of these small private hotels.
