    Excellent photographs, sandipan_r15. It is unfortunate that your Punto could not make it up to Bhutan.

    Thanks J RAVI sir. It's unfortunate that we had to scrap our programme to BHUTAN. Hopefully I would make it next time. Thanks.

    DAY--6///30.05.2013///TOTAL KM--160Km///kmpl--18.4
    Today spotted the first PUNTO in the trip so far.No was 'MH-43-XXXX'---(TUSCAN WINE)----could not read the full No. Any TFI-AN knows this one?

    Today took a jungle safari in the JALDAPARA national park .Saw some peacock, one hornbill, one barking deer----pretty disappointing. After returning from the jungle safari we went to COOCHBEHAR(the district town of coochbehar district).It's a more or less planned city with many beautiful & big water bodies, lots of greenery and very good level of cleanliness. BUT ABOVE ALL THE BEHAVIOUR OF THE PEOPLE OF THIS CITY IS REALLY NICE.THEY ARE SO HELPFUL & POLITE.Anybody,whom we asked about some spots or route, they are eager to help. REALLY NICE.

    COOCHBEHAR PALACE has now taken over by ASI & maintained beautifully. A museum has also been setup in the PALACE.
    Visited MADANMOHAN TEMPLE in the city.


    We also visited BANESWAR temple ,few kms from coochbehar city.This temple(of lord SHIVA)famous for it's tortoises.

    On the return trip to JALDAPARA we took the route through CHILAPATA FOREST. Beautiful forest,lush greenery.
