Trip to scenic forest village!!

Mainly known for being adjacent to Buxa Tiger Reserve, Rajabhatkhawa has more to offer. It has some of the most beautiful ancient temples, nature centers and more.

Rajabhatkhawa is often ignored while people make their way to the Tiger Reserve. But taking out a day or two, apart from this time may be worth it!

Best time to travel!!

Rajabhatkhawa is the best place to visit during winters between October and March. The temperature is lower which makes it easier for you to travel in the sun.

Also, the Buxa Tiger Reserve remains closed between June and September. So going during the monsoon becomes pointless!

How to reach!!

By Air: If you want to fly down to Rajabhatkhawa then Bagdogra airport is the nearest airport available. Distance: 180 kilometers Time: 4 hours and 26 minutes By Rail: Much like the airport, Rajabhatkhawa does not have a train station of its own. The nearest airport is Alipurduar or NJP station. Distance: 170 kilometers Time: 4 hours and 3 minutes By Road: Being the most famous eco-tourist destination, Rajabhatkhawa is well-connected through a network of roads. Distance: 170 kilometers Time: 4 hours and 17 minutes

The story lies behind the name!!

In 1800, the king of Coochbehar vowed to never eat rice if he did not manage to remove the ruler of Bhutan from the area where the actual village is situated now. After some time, the monarch of Bhutan himself agreed to leave the village and as a victory, the kings celebrated by having a rice feast amidst the dense forest. This is how the village got its name!

Hold on!! Let’s explore the places now...

1.Nature Interpretation Centre: The Nature Interpretation Centre is at a short distance from the Buxa Tiger Reserve. The place houses numerous birds and animals in the reserve, along with various plants and their medicinal properties.

2.Animal Rescue Center: It is one of the popular tourist attractions of Rajabhatkhawa. This is a destination where the injured leopards and tigers are treated well enough before they are released back in the forests. You can also watch tiger, leopard, bison or other animals. Also, an excellent place to know the behaviour of the animals!
