|Address:||QF72+7F5, Asanpani, West Bengal 832304|
|How to go:||If you are coming by car from Kolkata, take Mumbai-Kolkata Highway followed by Sciene City-Kolaghat-Kharagpur-Jhargram-Baharagora-Ghatshila-Galudih-Duarsini-Banduan. I feel this is the best road for them who love to drive, as most of the way it comes under national highway. (280 km approx. from Science City)
Another route is from Lodhasuli take right, take the route of Jhargram-Jamboni-Belpahari-Kuilapal-Banduan-Duarsini (280 km approx. from Science City)
Another route is after Lodhashuli go straight to the Mumbai-Kolkata Highway, take right from Chichra-Salboni-Chilkigarh-Belpahari-Kuilapal-Banduan-Duarsini. (291 km approx. from Science City)
Last two route is good for Jhargram, but if anyone wants to go to Duarsini or Banduan they can use these three routes as per their convenient.
|Pros:||Absolute nature will cover you up all the time, you will experience amazing road trip all together.|
|Cons:||Don't expect any public transport, loosing mobile network will causes issue for those who need it urgent basis.|
|What to visit ?||I would suggest if you are planning for Duarsini and Banduan, concentrate all the time for these particular places only. Additionally one the way or while coming back one can visit Mukutmanipur, Jhilimili, Jhargram, Belpahari etc. All are near by or on the way.
Additionally if you have time on the way visit Lodhasuli forest for one hour at least.
|Company:||Friends and family|
|Minimum day/time to visit:||2 days full|
|Expenses:||3000 rs for 1 person 1 day including all for a small group of company (including stay)|
|More Information:||This place comes under offbeat Purulia. If someone loves road trip or long drive, it can be considered as the best fruit for them. It is all about being attached with the mother nature. 2/3 full days are enough for a person to get enough Oxygen into them. Take a slow step, don't rush to here and there, don't make any rush full plan, rather walk through the road of Duarsini, feel the silence of the place.
Spring is the best season for this place due to Palash flowers, Kusum leaf and red all over the nature. Early morning freshness will freshen you up to it's ultimate level.
Purulia is always good for winter also, but nature may not show you that color in Winter what you get in Spring. But it is obviously a good time for this place.
Few people love these places in Monsoon due to lush green and muddy water of its rives and dam area. Choice is yours.
Duarsini WBFDC is the best option if you wants to stay in Duarsini due to its Location. The cottages are very unique and looks beautiful. It's vibrant color and the shape will attract you the most.
