I shall highly appreciate some contact details. If this is a homestay, shall we contact the owner of the building directly?

Wah! Mr Asishdas, your tactful "probe" really enlightened this TR ...with pictures and meaningful data!

Nice trip report
A good traveler has no fixed plans, and is not intent on arriving.

Hi Nirmalya,

If you want to stay at Garpanchkot you can look for WBFDC accomodation(Prakiti Bhraman Kendra) there. It is really beautiful and situated amidst greenery at the base of the Panchet Hill. You can book it from the WBFDC website or their booking office in Kolkata.

If you want to stay at Maithon you can stay at Mazumdar Niwas of DVC. I don't have first hand experience of staying there. But according to most of the reviews read on internet it is cheap and quite good in terms of view. Here is it's contact collected from net :

Contact: CPRO, DVC Towers, CIT Housing Complex, VIP Road, Kolkata 700054. Phone:+91 33 2333-2115.

For more details you can take a look at my Garpanchkot TR(link is in my signature) else you can take a look at the pictures in my gallery here

visit at boronti and stay at A.kaashmoni in January

Hi all,
The way Mukul has described Boronti is perfect, but I find the contact detail for booking of Akaashmoni resort is not correct. The contact no. for booking at Akaashmoni is 8017215958. No other contact is valid any more

Originally Posted by Mukul Sarkar View Post Recently I we (I and my wife) had relished a short trip of Purulia in West Bengal. We stayed in Baranti, near Muradi. Since, the check-in time at the Baranti resorts, starts early in the morning (10:00 am), we decided to make the full use of it. We boarded the Chakradharpur Passenger which leaves the Howrah Station at 11:00 pm and reached Adra at 5:25 am the next morning. From there we took a local train to reach Muradi station (The journey time from Adra to Muradi is exactly 30 minutes).


From Muradi, we embarked upon our sojourn in the lap of pristine Nature. We took a rickshaw from Muradi to reach our destination in Baranti, i.e.- Akashmoni Resort. Purulia is truly a land of Red Soil and it was vivid in our entire journey from Muradi to Baranti. My wife Susmita became really euphoric as the small 3-wheeled vehicle crossed through stone-studded path and made its way via the picaresque beautiful muddy villages. It is possible to reach Baranti by a motor car, but travelling in a rickshaw via different rural route was a new experience. It took roughly 1 hour to reach our resort. The rickshaw-puller charged us Rs.150, but it was worth the enjoyment.

At Akashmoni Resort, we virtually became alleviated from the dusty world in Howrah where we live. The beautifully-themed resort right on the bank of Baranti lake and dam and situated on the foot of a hill really threw a portrait of the many hidden treasures of rural-Bengal. The Palash trees in and around the resort lulled us to a tranquil spirit and relieved our body and mind.

On that same day, we made a short trip to Maithon-Panchet-Garh Panchkote in a Tata Sumo that costed us Rs. 1500/. The very next morning we hired a Sumo to enjoy the thrills of historic Ayodhya Hills, around 125 km from our resort. It is better to take the Balarampur route to reach the top of the hill as it passes through dense forest and 'Duarsini'. The hydro-electric power, water-reservoir and the Bamni Falls are some of the many jewels of the majestic hill. One of the premier attractions of the place is that even at the top of the hill, you will get the feelings that it is a vast plain land where several types of paddy are being cultivated and there are villages in and around the summit.



We stayed in Baranti for another day and returned with heavy hearts for bidding adieu to such a lovely place along with its kind people. One thing to note is that Susmita hardly feels contended with any pleasure trip but this time she remarked that Baranti is relatively more beautiful than some places of Kerala. So, it is a aprroval stamp on the beauty and attraction of Baranti.
