Chilapata Forest 1/1 by Tripoto

Chilapata Forest

Madhurima Mazumder
At first we saw the Chilapata forest. It was possibly a part of the Jaldapara Wildlife Sanctuary. When the cars speeded through the desolate forest in the afternoon, the entire ambiance became incredible. We stopped at a place where a tiny foot-track went into the forest and I was greedy to just follow the trail and explore the silence of the forest in afternoon light. I have never been to such a forest before and it was majestic. The curved high road that went through it, was unspeakably alluring, but we had to hurry for Phuntsholing. Near the entrance of Chilapata forest there was a pretty army campus amidst all the greenery and even that simple thing looked beautiful in the glow of the sun.
