The plains of Buxa Tiger Reserve mostly witness mild temperature except for a few days in May when the weather may become quite hot. The highest temperature rarely goes above 30˚c and the lowest rarely touches 5˚c. The Monsoon months between July and September witnesses heavy to very heavy rainfall. Average annual rainfall at Rajabhatkhawa is about 3750 mm. Average rainfall in the entire Tiger reserve is about 4100 mm with the northern part having slightly higher rainfall than the south. Humidity remains between 80 to 90% with the monsoon months having highest humidity and the winter months having the least. Heavy wind and cyclone is a rarity but may occur occasionally during April-May and sometimes during September-October period.
November – February
The winter months are the most comfortable for travel to Buxa. The day temperature remains between 12˚c to 21˚c. This is the dry period with December being the driest. Night temperature may go down well below 10 ˚c. Worm clothing is a must. Dense fog lingers in the morning and early evening.
March – April
The day temperature varies between 22˚c to 26˚c. Occasional showers may occur, so it is safer to carry an umbrella.
These are the summer months and the hottest. Average temperature 27˚c to 32˚c. Carry light cotton clothing, sunscreen and sunglass to travel during these months.
July – September
This is the rainy season. The forests are the greenest and looks most beautiful. But this is also the mating season for wildlife and the forest remains closed for tourists between 15th June and 15th September every year. Average temperature 25˚-30˚c. Heavy rain occasionally leads to minor flooding. The last major flood occurred in 1993. In the past the roads were often damaged and the Reserve remained cut off during Monsoon months. Presently the road condition has improved and accessibility is better.
This is the beginning of the festival season and start of the high season for tourism. Weather is mostly pleasant with clear sky and good visibility. Evening weather begins to get little cold. Day temperature varies between 23˚-26˚c. Rain stops by the first week of October.
Humro Home Buxa is a sustainable tourism initiative of naturebeyond with Mr. Lal Singh Bhujel, a forest villager of Buxa. It is located strategically at Rajabhatkhawa forest village and has the unique advantage of being just 100 meters from the forest. Yet Rajabhatkhawa market is just 10 minutes walk away.
The Homestay is located at Rajabhatkhawa inside Buxa forest, about 12 kms from Alipurduar Junction railway station and about a km from Rajabhatkhawa rail station. Humro Home Buxa offers five rooms all with attached toilets and running hot and cold water. The rooms are in an wooden Bungalow that is constructed in traditional Dooars style.
Out of your cramped city life, we understand you wouldn’t want to stay at a hotel that is cramped as well. Our resort offers some of the most specious rooms in Buxa.
Spread over several acres of land, you can walk in the garden or even go beyond to take a stroll among the agricultural land. Two small streams flowing on both sides of the resort are the source of fishes and crabs for the locals and you are welcome to join the hunt. Or you may simply seat on the deck chair in your veranda and watch the forest and the hills of Bhutan beyond. There are Television sets in some of the rooms and geyser in all the toilets.
There is a small food joint next to the bungalow where we serve some delicacies you won’t get in much pricier hotels. The serving is generous and the smiles are complimentary. We will help you savour local delicacies such as Momo or Thukpa. Try local milk or curd which is of the purest form.
For groups, we organise cultural programs, bon fire and barbeque against small extra charge. Your driver and car will be taken care of adequately as well.
Buxa Tiger Reserve is spared over about 760 square kilometre area. It is the largest forest in North Bengal. Rajabhatkhawa is located in the Northern fringe of the tiger reserve and is the entry point to the core area of the forest. Our eco-resort is about 1.5 kilometers from the Rajabhatkhawa rail station and is located in Rajabhatkhawa forest village which is surrounded on all sides by dense forest.
If you are travelling by train, you may get down at Alipurduar Junction rail station which is just 16 kms from our eco-resort and is half an hours’ drive. At Rajabhatkhawa market, cross the rail line and drive about 500 meters before leaving the main road and taking a left turn to travel inside the Rajabhatkhawa forest village. The Humro HomeRajabhatkhawa is just a kilometre from this point.
From NJP / Bagdogra
For most visitors NJP is the railhead and Bagdogra is the airport where they alight. From here our resort is about 160 kms and may take between 3 to 4 hours depending on road condition. You have to travel through Gorumara and Jaldapara forests till you reach Hasimara. From here take a left turn and travel through Kalchini and Hamiltonganj before reaching Rajabhatkhawa. Alternatively you may skip the left turn at Hasimara and drive straight on the National highway till you reach Alipurduar. From here take a left turn and drive on for about 20 minutes to reach the eco-resort.
