The Buxa National Park and Tiger Reserve, located in the eastern Indian state of West Bengal at the foothills of the lower Himalayas, is full of adventure and excitement with rich bio-diversity, evergreen forest canopy, and glimpses of rare animals.

Buxa is known to be one of the oldest settlements in North Bengal. The Buxa National Park gets its name from the Buxa Fort, a historic fort amidst the dense forest used by the British rulers of India as a high-security prison during the Second Dooars War with Bhutan and later used a detention camp for Indian freedom fighters. Because of inaccessible terrain, some parts of the Buxa hills in the Sinchula range are still unexplored. The park acts as a corridor for elephants to migrate between India and Bhutan through the fragile Terai ecosystem of the area.

Buxa National Park has many adventures routes where one can enjoy a trek. It also has a great collection of rare orchids and medicinal plants, making it a must-visit place for adventure lovers and botany enthusiasts.
