Local train from sealdah to canning are not so crowdy as we thought, it took about 1hr and 20 min to reach canning. We took the train at 8. 30 in the morning and reserved a auto rickshaw form there and boarded the houseboat at Godkhali at 11 Am and the journey was started.

A journey worth going for once in a life time

Jan 3, 2016
Mode of Transport: Car

We travelled by boat for the entire journey. Thats the only transportation available. Be sure to carry some drinking water on the boat. And best to take this journey in Dec month as in summer it will become terribly hot and unbearable. Also no chance of spotting tigers as they are very rare.

Roads were bad at some points and decent journey

May 13, 2015
Mode of Transport: Car

This wasn't too bad a journey given that I got to see the West Bengal countryside in all its beauty. The roads were bad at some points and half-decent at others. However, it really helps to take a trusted driver rather than hire a cab service.
