We spent a night on 24th-25th December,2011 at Lankapara. It was a chilling night.The distant sound of drums and tune of songs of tribal people in local language in a wintry night charmed us. The shadowy light of Jaigaon-Phuentsolling lurked us in that evening. We enjoyed those rustic incidents and experience lot.As it was a family trip and kids were with us , there were little scope of daring jungle safari.Yet, we made a short trip in the dusk.But our driver Moslem Mian was fearing from tuskers and we had to retreat.We found negligible wild animals there yet it was fantastic trip to spend time together in tranquility in the midst of forest.It was the first night I spent a whole night in jungle-bungalow.
Better to avoid rainy season as rain in the hills cut the way from civilized world.Nearest town/important place is Madarihat which is well connected through Roads & Rails. Hashimara Air-base is near to it.
