- The people of North Bengal are also a varied lot. The tea gardens brought in Tribals from Bengal and Bihar. The hill stations attracted people from neighboring Nepal, and the partition of 1947 brought in Hordes of Bengalis from Bangladesh.
- The Hills, the jungles and the serene beauty of undulating tea gardens spread to the horizon.

Chilapata is a forest of Dooars adjacent to Jaldapara National Park in Alipurduar district of West Bengal. The forests of Chilapata is a continuation of Jaldapara forests and is separated by the river Torsha which flows through the West of Chilapata forest and East of Jaldapara National Park.
Chilapata forests were relatively less visited by tourists until recently. During the last few years the forests of Chilapata has gained tourism prominence as many small and medium sized resorts have come up near it.
The major attraction of Chilapata is the forest and its wild life. Forest safari in Jeep is available inside the forest. Sighting of Indian Bison (Gaur), Elephant, Rhino and various types of Deer is most common here. The forests are also known to be home for a variety of avifauna.
Chilapata is also has historical significance. The famous Nal Rajar Garh is a fort from the Nal Kings of Gupta age. Although the fort is mostly in ruins today, it is a place worth visiting while in Chilapata.
Jaldapara is the nearest tourist destination. Madarihat, the entry point for Jaldapara National Park is just 15 kms away. The largest forest of Dooars, Buxa Tiger Reserve, is also close by at a distance of 30 kms. Chilapata is located between the two forests of Jaldapara and Buxa giving it an unique advantage of tourists being able to visit both the forests from here.
