Photographer's Note

The 5 KM trek from Santrabari to Buxa Fort is enjoyable for the picturesque surroundings. First of all, the trek is within comfort level; secondly, the track through forested hills is full of unknown birds and butterflies.
Once it was a terrible and dreadful route and the fort atop the Buxa Hill (Sinchulla range) was once used as a high security prison and detention camp. It used to be treated as the most unreachable prison in India after the Cellular Jail in Andaman.
The fort is at an altitude of 867 meters in the Buxa Tiger Reserve, Jalapaiguri district, West Bengal.
