Sikia Jhora is a rivulet flowing through the famous Buxa Tiger Reserve surrounded by Damanpur Range. Sikia Jhora stream can be found in North Panialguri in Alipurduar subdivision.

However, the rivulet swells up during rainy season and hence it is not a good idea to visit the place during monsoons.
