Jaldapara National Park is the most important tourist spot in Jaldapara forests. Formerly known as the Jaldapara wildlife sanctuary, this park is situated in the Alipurduar district of West Bengal, proximal to the Indo Bhutan border. The forest is mainly of Savannah type, part of the heavy rainfall zone. The forest is covered with tall elephant grasses.
Situated on the banks of the River Torsa, some other rivers flow through the forest area which include Malangi, Hollong, Chirakhawa, Kalijhora and Bhaluka. They were declared a national wildlife sanctuary in 1941 to protect and preserve the flora and fauna.
The National Park has the second largest population of the Indian one horned rhinoceros in the world after Kaziranga National Park and this makes it a reputed wildlife tourism spot. While one horned rhinoceros is the prime attraction here, it is abode to many other animals like Royal Bengal tiger, Deer, swamp deer, wild pig, Indian Bison, Leopard etc. Birdwatchers can spot and capture variety of birds.
