"Best holiday destination to a short trip"

Travelled as: Group

We started the journey on 12 ­Nov 2015 on a train journey by Purulia express with my 5 friends. Reservation was done before 20 days. We started the journey from Howrah station to Bishnupur, it seems to 3.45 hour. Then hire an auto to go to hotel laxmi park. Our journey was short but very enjoyable journey. We were not faced any problem on train journey. At Bishnupur we hired a car for sightseeing.




"Beware of the dangerous potholes on the way"

Road condition up to Bishnupur via Arambagh is very bad except a very small stretch through the jungle at the last lap of the journey. Best approached through Durgapur/ Bankura and then towards the Bishnupur route. This road is again a bit rough. You can however, drive down up to Dugapur peacefully through NH2. Beware of the large number of dangerous potholes which can make your ride like a roller-coaster.

We started our journey in Nov 14 by Rajya rani express from howrah station to Bishnupur. It's a very high quality train and it's taken about 3.5 hours. The train fare about 90 rupees that very cheap. We saw beautiful crop land besides the train line. Most amazing thing in that trains were vendors, selling various foods, books, many domestic thing. Overall, the journey is good.




"Smooth 4 hour journey by road, good to start early morning "

We took off at about 5 Am in the morning and reached there at about 10:30 (including a 1 hour break). The condition of the NH is pretty good and taking off early means you can avoid the truck jams. There are not much visiting places en-route. So there will be very less interventions, thus you can reach there pretty fast. Do not forget to carry sun glass and drinking water and some snacks in your car.

The journey was fascinating . As time passed by and the trip metro rolled down , the terrain , the colour of soil changed . The road is exceptionally beautiful and well-maintained . Had a smooth drive . there are plenty of dhabas in the highway where one can quench his thirst and hunger . Shaktigarh's LENGCHA is a must taste cuisine , specially when travelling from Kolkata to Bishnupur via Durgapur Express Way . Overall, rating - 9/10
