Hi friends,

During coming mid-July we, 4-5 friends are planning for a 3-day trip. hence, it could be a short tour. we can start in the evening from kolkata and may start for coming back on 4th day evening. Any suggestion?

It is monsoon at that time, so I think north Bengal hill is not suitable due to landslide; again digha, bokkhali, tajpur etc seaside points are visited a lot; so can be avoided. But any suggestions and combinations are welcome. Places can be from west bengal, orissa, jharkhand any where, but need to keep in mind about the unrest on the west due to Maoist activities.

Please suggest and share your experiences.

Thank you...

An alternate 3 day tour in Jharkhand will be..Ranchi (a number of waterfalls), Rajrappa (famous Kali temple plus wonderful landscape) - you might have read about it in a Satyajit Roy's feluda story, though I can't remember the name right now; and Hazaribag.

May I suggest an alternative route? It is Kolkata to Panchalingeswar, Ghandipur, Talsari, Digha &a back to Kolkata. It is an excellent circuit for 3 N/4 Days. For more details and photograph please go to: Kolkata to Chandipur, Panchalingeswar, Taalsari, Digha

@anupam, the Feluda adventure story was "Chinnamastar Avishap"
Panchalingeshwar is a nice place coupled with Chandipur, but the temperature will be quite hot
@PKanti, can you provide some more details on how to reach Masanjore?
I remember a place called McCluskieganj, i believe i read about it in a Neellohit novel, seemed very nice, experts may comment further
Thanks,
Deep

McCluskieganj is in the state of Jharkhand. You can reach there from Ranchi by private bus or by exclusive cab. The place has forest, hillocks, small springs etc. Many writers like, Budhadev Guha, actors like Aparna Sen, had, once upon a time (don't know the present condition) had their Bungalows. The place was originally built as a Colony of Anglo Indians. But then most of its original residents had either died or had migrated to Australia or other countries. When I visited the place long time back, these Bungalow pattern houses are lying in dilapidated condition like haunted house! I understand now a days tourists are not going there because of terrorists' activities around that place.

Now that you had referred to Kechki, it reminds me of my unplanned stay of one night at Kechki Forest Rest House many years back, which was used beautifully as backdrop for Aronner DinRatri movie by Sayajit Babu and become famous by then. Ketchki Bengalow is strategically located at confluence of Koel and Auranga rivers, with vast span of water and equally vast sand bed. However, if Kechki has come to consideration zone, why not then (1) Netarhat, (2) Daltongaunj, (3) Betla National Park etc.? There is a forest road connecting Netarjat and Betla. Travelling on that road is both wonderful as well as thrilling, unforgettable experience!

As regards Kiriburu (you should have taken the name of Meghateburu also (the SAIL Guest House is located at Meghateburu only). The place is no more sleepy, serene village as it used to be long time back. Both the places have been converted as modern Township of SAIL for their employees working in Iron Ore Mines. However, watching sun set from the campus of SAIL Guest House is an unique experience.

Daringbari - we made a plan, traveled up to Taptapani (the same road takes you to Daringbari), but somehow the plan had to be abandoned. May be we will do it some other time. Thanks for reminding beautiful memories.

Majumdar Niwas is the name of the Rest House owned by DVC and is located on a small hillock inside Maithon Dam, a narrow road connecting the Rest House with the Dam Road. The property is built in such a way that it looks like floating on the Dam water.
As far as my knowledge goes, a few rooms of this property are given to public on nominal rent and the booking authority in Kolakta is CPRO, DVC, DVC Towers, Ultadanga (at least it used to be so a few years back).
Maithon is situated in Jharkhand State just at the Bengal-Jharkhand Border. I understand that there is some confusion: I don't remember exactly, perhaps the Maithon Township is in Jharkhand and the Dam is in Bengal or vice versa. Another attraction nearby is Devi Kalyanswari temple. According to me it is really a good week end destination during winter and monsoon.
