There are three distinct routes that will take you to Humro Home Chilapata depending on where you are coming from.

Most visitors come here from Siliguri, or western Dooars. Chilapata forest distance from Siliguri or NJP station is about 120 kms and takes about 3 hours depending on present road condition. To reach here you will follow the National Highway to Hasimara. From Hasimara Hasimara Gurudwara crossing take the right road from the bifurcation to immediately enter into Chilapata forests. About 19 kms drive through dense Chilapata jungle will bring you to the other side of the forest where you will reach the Chilapata forest check post. Take a right turn from here to reach the resort about 200 meters ahead.

If you are coming from Alipurduar / Coochbehar or Jalpaiguri area, drive through National Highway 27 to reach Sonapur crossing. From here take the North East bound road that will take you to the same Chilapata forest check post in about 10 minutes (11 kms).

The third route to reach the area originates on the National Highway 317 which passes through Buxa Tiger Reserve. If your previous or next destination is a resort in Buxa area or nearby, this will be your shortest route. Reach Nimti Domohona and take the south bound road to reach the check post about 10 kms away. Dont forget to ask the locals in case of confusion as this route has a few turns that are easy to miss.
