Tripura: Lone Butterfly Park drawing tourists, turning hotspot

The lone Butterfly Park in Tripura located at Chottakhola near the Trishna Wildlife Sanctuary has turned into a major tourist hub for people.

The place has also attracted tourists from Bangladesh.

The park, inaugurated in 2016 on 5.5 hectares of land, is home to 250 species of butterflies. Deputy Conservator of Forest, Krishnagopal Roy while speaking to media said that due to the close proximity of the endangered bison park at Trishna wildlife sanctuary and Indo-Bangla Maitri Park which was established to commemorate the Bangladesh liberation war, visitors can witness three spots in one visit, Assam Tribune reported.

The park provides all possible habitat requirements for the elusive and fascinating creatures, including a breeding facility, artificial foods and plants which are favourite to the butterflies. The forest department is working to promote the butterflies in the state which is rich in natural resources. In recent survey by the forest officials it was found that such parks could be set up in twenty more places. Hence they are trying to increase the number of butterflies to make the tourism industry of the state more attractive, forest officials were quoted as saying.
