General Information About Jayanti জয়ন্তী

Jayanti is a small picturesque forest village at the fringe of the Buxa forest. Located along the Jayanti River, which forms a natural border with the Bhutan hills, the hills on the Eastern Side of the river and the small village on the western side are also named after the river as Jayanti Hills and Jayanti village respectively. With its serene ambience and pictorial view, Jayanti is often referred to as the "Queen of Dooars". This forest village is about 30 Km from Alipurduar.

Jayanti village is one of the oldest towns of the Dooars region but in present time you can't see the town but instead what you see is a decaying village within a vibrant ecology. Nature has thrived here, the forest is green and the wildlife is aplenty. Although in the deep jungle sighting is not very common. A tour of Jayanti, away from the monotonousness of city life is an ideal leisure holiday destination where time seems to have slowed down its fast pace. Music of the swift-flowing Jayanti River, the chirping of unknown birds, sweet fragrance of nature and refreshingly cool breeze at Jayanti will make you feel completely rejuvenated. Though the river remains dry for most of the year its white beds with pebbles all around imparts an unmatched beauty to the place. Way to Jayanti through the densely forested Buxa Tiger Reserve is a fascinating experience and another huge attraction of Jayanti tour. Meeting a herd of Elephant or Spotted Deer or plenty of Peacocks are most common sights on the way to Jayanti.
