Beautiful daughter of the hills ....... that's what 'Bangriposi' means in Oriya




Before sharing my own experience, here are some IMPORTANT information for the future travelers.


How to Reach Bangriposi -



By Train - From Kolkata to Balasore-
1) Form Howrah - There are many trains from Howrah to Balasore. Some better options are :
Dhouli 12821 (D-06.00; A-09-26);
Falaknuma 12703 (D-07:25; A-10:35) ;
Howrah - Puri Shatabdi 12277 (D-14:25; A-17:32)

2) From Shalimar -
Shalimar-Chennai Central Weekly SF Express (22825 - D-12:20; A-15:38) ;

3) From Howrah to Rupsa Junction -
East Coast (18645 - D-11:45; A-15.24); Reaches Balasore at 15.45;
Howrah-Bhadrakh Bagha Jatin Passenger 58003 (D-15:30; A- 20:22); Reaches Balasore at 20.47;
Howrah-Puri Passenger 58001 (D - 23:50; A- 05:23 +1 night); Reaches Balasore at 5.40.

4) From Shalimar to Baripada -
Similipal InterCity Express 18007 (D-18:35; A- 23:50)

5) From Howrah to Kharagpur-
Many Express trains, MEMU and local trains run from Howrah to Kharagpur.



A) 2nd phase - By Train -
From Balasore to Bangriposi-
DEMU train no.78013 from Balasore to Baripada (D-10.05; A-11.40)
DEMU train no.78015 Baripada to Bangriposi (D- 11.43; A-12.30) (the same train actually).

(* So Dhouli from Howrah can make you avail that train from Balasore)



B) 2nd phase by car -
From Balasore (106 km);
From Rupsa (115 km);
From Baripada (53 km).
From Kharagpur (110 km).

Cars are available from Balasore OR Baripada OR Rupsa OR Kharagpur to Bangriposi.



By Road -
1) From Kolkata one can go by car via Balasore following the route Kolkata-Dunlop - Bally Bridge - Uluberia - Kharagpur - Chichira - Bahragora - (crossing Subarnarekha River) Jarpokhoria - Bangriposi. The road after Kharagpur is really troublesome

2) A Bus runs from Esplanade to Keonjhar via Bangriposi.




How to return from Bangriposi

Cars can be arranged to reach Baripada OR Balasore OR Kharagpur Railway station from Bangriposi. Then trains are available to reach Kolkata.


1) By Train from Balasore-
Here are some better references -
12074 - Bhubaneswar-Howrah Jan Shatabdi : D- 09:03;
12278 - Puri Howrah Shatabdi : D- 10.17;
18646 - East Coast : D- 11.42;
12704 - Falaknuma : D- 13.52;
12822 - Dhouli : D- 16.20;
22826 - Chennai Central-Shalimar : D-17:32; (reaches Shalimar at 21.30)


2) From Baripada to Shalimar -
18008 - Similipal InterCity Express : D- 03:45;


3) From Kharagpur -
Many Express trains, MEMU and local trains run from Kharagpur to Howrah.

4) By bus -
A bus runs from Keonjhar to Esplanade which passes through Bangriposi.

So, Sutapa, another colorful, multifaceted, crisp, detailed, resourceful, uptodate (ekdom hate gorom) TR is in the offing.... and that too from a master blogger like, Duronto Jajabar. I'm on my toes, really. Let it pour!



I have a humble submission to you. I see you are this time a group of 21 adults besides some kids. When I first learnt the number, I only said to myself - Oh my God! I don't know who is the manager of this group, is it you? Whoever it is, my hats off to her/him. I know what a stupendous task it is to handle such a large crowd with diverse needs. For some inexplicable reasons, I am always assigned this thankless job, but managing 21 adults?? Oh no, I would have gone crazy...!! But the point that I want to make is that this story of handling such a large crowd in a travel mode would surely be a good read, absorbing, educative, hilarious, and may be, at times, disastrous also. Why not create a separate thread and share the story with us. I bet it will be a great story. Think it over. Thanks.

Really a thankless job often has to carry extra burden .

Well, I never met too must much problematic situations, as the group we have, are all from same locality having day to day relation.

Besides traveling together, we meet twice/thrice or more every month on the occasion of birthday/ anniversary/ puja or even on first rain of the year or on the coldest day (obviously more than one in a season ) or for having a new microwave or for 'khichuri' / 'illish' / 'pithe-puli' etc. etc. etc. and etc.

I must follow you.

Thanks a lot PKanti (hummmmm, I also missed your special comments so far ), Ronak and Soumik.

Thanks to Sayak and Rajat for liking.

There are already two nice threads on Bangriposi with charming description ...... tempting enough . But I liked to post a photo story again.

Now, Asishda provoked me (really ) to say something more about the tremendous stupendous chaotic group tale

I think, you all can bear this

The plan




Bangriposi was in our 'to do weekend trips' list since years.

Current posts in IM helped me utilize this winter end trip there, I must admit.


What we booked first were the train tickets. Though there were enough seats (2s only) in Dhouli, we needed close allotments for our group - 20 adults and 5 kids (all below five) - so I just fixed the dates and booked tickets. Indian Railways never offered adjacent compartments for such a healthy group, never . This time we got 8 seats together in one and 12 in another just leaving three compartments between , though in a single coach - D2. As we chose the dates including Swarasati Puja, four kids (above 5) strongly objected going with us ..... they preferred taking part in 'kite-flying' which is very enticing among kids in our locality in this time of year. So they were left in home with grand parents (my son was one of them ).


During January, we had a picnic in Haringhata Dairy firm and this big-fat group was the main participant. In that merry gathering, one couple, who refrained me from buying their tickets, got so much cheered up by that 20 (having tickets booked already) that they started rethinking of their planned programme . Finally just on 13th, they made me log on again to irctc.co.in and I got two seats in WL for them. But Dhouli again proved herself as a good option for last minute passengers (as we found earlier too) and they got confirmed seats in D3 !!!!


One bachelor (confirm) of our team canceled the trip just the night before - so finally we ended the count at 21+ 5




Departing time of Dhouli from Howrah is 06.00 . So it was dark when we left home. No traffic jam, no waiting at signal, no queuing ...... we reached Howrah well ahead.

As the sun started kissing the sky, the lights in Howrah station started feeling end of their duties, morning lazy station started turning into busy one ....... we started our journey towards Bangriposi- the beautiful daughter of hills.




Leaving Howrah Station.

Eagerly waiting for your detailed trip report, DJ. Please continue. Is this place worth paying a visit in summer, now that winter is gone? Please also give some information to us about the hotels and nearby places of interest.

Rahul, thanks a lot

Summer will not be so good for - 1) mosquito, 2) the area will be too dry, lack of green - the beauty, 3) less water in ponds, river, dam and 4) day outing will be troublesome.

I'll say about accommodation soon.
