- The Hills, the jungles and the serene beauty of undulating tea gardens spread to the horizon.

30 km from Alipurduar town and about 40 kms from Coochbehar, Rasik Bil is a large marshland and a lake close to Kamakshyaguri town near the Bengal Assam boarder. The large lake is ideal for eco-tourism activities. What attracts tourists here is the wide variety of avifauna that includes cormorants, different varieties of storks, ibis, spoonbill, kingfisher, parrots, owl and many others. There is a large aquarium, a Deer Park and a Crocodile rehabilitation center at Rasikbil.
From Rasikbil, you can go on a day visit to the famous Buxa Tiger Reserve. Rasikbil itself is part of the buffer area of the tiger reserve. The historically significant town of Coochbehar can also be visited on a day outing.
Where to Stay
The only decent tourist accommodation at Rasikbil is the tourist cottages of West Bengal Forest Development Corporation. There is a large dormitory in the main building apart from a few cottages.
You may also visit Rasibil as part of a day trip from Buxa or Coochbehar area.
