I was planning to explore tripura but not through their govt. packages. So what i did ..

9th March - Wednesday..

Reached at agartala by jetlite with my family.. at 8.45 morning and took a cab (Rs. 300) to agartala Railway station. I cut ticket to Dharmanagar (Rs. 22/) general class. Actually my plan was to visit Unokoti and Roa from Dharmanagar.. If I have planned to Visit these places from agartala or by govt packages I have to travel arround 300 kms more by road.. Reached at Dharmanagar arround 16.45 and shifted to a hotel in the main town.
10th March - Thrusday
Booked a Van for Rs 1200/- for Unokoti and Roa Wildlife Santuary. Unokoti was a suparb place to visit and has got its rich historical value. Then visited Roa (10 Am - 2 PM), came back to hotel.

11th March - Friday
Took the Same van to Jampui - the only Hill station in tripura and board into Eden Tourist lodge.. I have got only the Phone no of it and without any prior booking I have got A double bed room (Rs. 660/) Only I have called them in the morning about the accomodation. After reaching there we finished our Fish Meal( Rs 60/-) and forwarded to Phuldangsai.. ( Almost to Mijoram Border) Both the places are good with its natural beauty. Then Return Back to the Hotel by Evening.

12th March - Saturday
In the morning we moved to a village called Vangmun to visit their lifestyle.. its a good village to see that how they have kept their village quite clean and green. Its one of the oldest tribal village. Then we came back to hotel and took launch and return to Dharmanagar.

13th March - Sunday.
In the Morning 6.15 we availed a train to Agartala with same fare and reached three at 11.30 and finished the launch at the station compound. Hired a Van and ahead to Kasba Kali Bari.. Its a Kali temple near Bangladesh Border where you can find the Bangladeshi Trains.. its so Close. Anyway from their we moved to Melagarh- Sagarmahal Tourist lodge.. to visit Nirmahal - A Summer Palace of Tripura Kings.. It's Situated in the heart of a big lake called Rudrasagar. Here also we got a Suit (Rs 825/-) by requesting them through telephone without prior booking.
What we did is We cut the ticket to Nirmahal and asked the boatman to return without us. Because we allready booked light and sound program of nirmahal after reaching there. We visited the whole palace then L & S program Starts at 6.30 pm. They described their history of their state and how Nirmahal connects to them through L & S. Anyway after visiting this we came back to hotel by Govt. Boat through Rudrasagar at arround 7.30 pm. The Boat journey in the dark night is a awesome experience.

14th March - Monday
Had our bath and ahead to Tripurasundari temple through Kakraban and reached there at 9.00. We gave our Puja there. This temple is a "SatiPith" and has big pond near the temple. Where you can feed fish. From there we visited Bhubaneshwari temple, Vishnu Temple, Tepania Echo Park, Sipaijala , Rose Vally Park and came back to Agartala Main Town and took a hotel (Hotel Heaven - Surya Choumani at Rs 800/- Ac-Suit)

15th March - Tuesday
At morning 9.00 we ahead to Baramura Eco park and then came back to Agartala and visit Local Rajbari, Jagannath Temple, Neheru Park, Chaturdash Devta Temple etc. and came back to hotel.

16th March - Wednesday
Reached at Kolkata via jetlite by 11.00 am.

Thats a short description of my visit to tripura from kolkata.
What I realised is the road condition of tripura of almost everywhere is suparb, people are very helpful and you will get good food over there.
If any body has anything to ask for pls give me a msg..
I hope you will also enjoy this trip.
Thanks..

Thank you sandy for this report. Very helpful information, especially since you put some prices for hotels and renting the van into it. Much appreciated.
How was the weather while you where there, did you encounter any rain? Was it already hot?
cheers FX

The following thread might help you:

http://www.indiamike.com/india/forum...tures-t107519/

But do it fast as the original thread won't be editable after 48 hours of posting, so after 2 days you can't insert snaps on the actual post, definitely add later in a separate post though!!

Theyyam, it's not at all sounds difficult from what you wrote but the large thumnails is a new word for me, have to check it out.

Hi Sandy,
You can either post pics in your Photo Gallery, or you can post here in the thread.

For the first option, to go "Photos" and to "Upload". You must be sure the photo is not too large, less than 2mb, in order to comply with the norms of the galleries.

For the second option, now that any size is automatically "thumbnailed" to a large thumbnail in the thread (since 2 days ago!), you go via the "Go Advanced" option in replying to a post here, then you press the "Paperclip" and download your attachments.

It is not as difficult as I am making it sound.

Thank you for the interesting trip report.

Have you shared it for public viewing or it's private? I can't view them by clicking the link, it's asking for uid/pwd.

any idea about the Metre gauge train running to Tripura, as I love train journeys, specially the scenic ones.

@drk

As far as I am aware there is no Meter gauge rail line in Tripura. Tripura has only one rail line linking Silchar (Assam) and Agartala (Capital city of Tripura) and this is (in all probability) a broad gauze line. There is only one Passenger train which commutes between Silchar and Agartala daily. The details of train is as follows:

52564 SILCHAR AGARTALA PASS SCL DEP 10.45 AGTL ARR 20.00

@shareefahmad1981

Eden Tourist Lodge at Kanchanpur (Jampui Hills) is owned and managed by Tripura Tourism Dev Corprn Ltd. and its Headquarters are located at Agartala. I think you have to approach TTDC Office at Agartala for booking at Eden Tourist Lodge. Their contact address is as follows:

Tripura Tourism Development Corporation Limited
Swetmahal, Agartala-799001
Phone: (+91381) 232-5930/3893, FAX. (+91381) 231 7878,
E mail: tripuratourism09@rediffmail.co m

Hope, this helps.
