The Jaldapara National Park, located in the foothills of the Eastern Himalayas, is the second-largest home for critically endangered Great one-horned Rhinoceros in India.

Jaldapara National Park has a thick forest that makes it difficult for the sunlight to penetrate the floor in many areas. The majority of the park is in the flood plains of River Torsa and other small rivers & rivulets, creating large tracts of grasslands sustaining a population of Great Indian One Horned Rhinoceros, as well as other animals like Elephant, Gaur, Sambar, etc.

The park is home to many endangered species and is considered a paradise for bird watchers.
