Post Your Comment Back To Oxygen
Address: North of Begunkodar, Jhalda Block, Purulia, West Bengal 723212
How to go: From Purulia one should take Ranchi-Purulia road to avoid rush and get smooth road and take left from Garh Jaipur. You can visit Deulghata on the same road after you take left. I always recommend use google map properly to reach your destination, also get information about alternative road.
Pros: Amazing view point of dam, the environment is very peaceful., Ayodhya hill is nearby
Cons: Only Jio or BSNL network connection will work properly, nearest local market is 10-12 km away in Begun Kodar
What to visit ? Muruguma Dam, Begun Kodar village, Ayodhya Hills
Company: Friends and family
Minimum day/time to visit: 2 days 1 night is enough for this place
Locality: Village
Expenses: Approx. 4500 rs for 2 days per head if you are going by car with a small team of 4. Now you can get some idea.
More Information: It can be a lovely weekend destination to stay at Muruguma for 2 nights and enjoy the aesthetic beauty of the village. Roam around the village, feel the beauty of nature. In the evening enjoy the sunset and then take a little bit liquor and have adda with friends. In the morning during season (February March) you can ask for "Mahua", local drinks. You may get the fresh one by request which will be fetch by the local from nearby village. Wake up early and roam around the water body and get oxygen as much as you can. Also can go for the sightseeing to Ayodhya, Charida, Khoyrabera, Deulghata etc.

Season

I have visited this area in two season i.e. in post Winter as well as Monsson. I prefer to go in Winter because of the clear blue sky, clear sunset, blueish water of the dam, green Muruguma valley across the water body and the climate. In Monsoon that valley will go under the waterbody. Muruguma is famous for sunset, in monsoon you will miss sunset most of the time because of the cloud. But you may get the vivid color of the sky when it is not raining. Another best season is Autumn, when you will find Purulia red everywhere you go because of "Palash" flower. That is in March April. Choice is yours.

Stay

In Muruguma there are few cottage has been built up. Among those Bon Palashi and Palash Bitan Jungle(Eco)Huts are the oldest. Both are situated very near to the dam area. They have tent, cottage and various kind of accommodation. The area is pretty vast, inside of the campus they installed open dinning, planted trees, siting arrangement, solar system etc. Besides these there are another eco cottage i.e. Muruguma eco hut. Except that there are Mahulbanee Jungle Eco Resort, Murguma Nature Camp, Eco-Cottage Aranya Kutir (Around 20 min walking distance from the water body). They have their websites and phone numbers and tariff mentioned. You can google it. All ask near about 1300 - 2500 rs per cottage or tents excluding food. It will be best if you go with a team of 4/5 people to share the amount equally.

Begun Kodar

One who stays in Muruguma must visit Begun Kodor village, beautiful railway station and aesthetic vegetable market. You will like it most in Winter. Don't judge the village by the rumour rather find the beauty in each corner of the village and markets. Vegetable market of Begun Kodar is very unique by it's color, people and stuff which are being sold.

    বসন্তের পুরুলিয়া মানেই লাল পলাশের বিপ্লব আর তাকে ছুঁয়ে হলুদ কমলা বেগুনি বিভিন্ন ফুলের উপস্থিতি জানান দেওয়া উঁকিঝুঁকি। মনে একরাশ আশা নিয়ে গেছিলাম পুরুলিয়ার কিছু গ্রামে, তবে হতাশ করেছে পলাশ। এবার সে বেশি দেখা দেয় নি। তবে হালকা শীতের চাদরে ঢাকা সবুজ গালিচা বিছানো মাঠ, ক্ষেত আর টলটলে নিস্তরঙ্গ ড্যামের জল, গাঢ় নীল মেঘমুক্ত আকাশ, সোনালী সূর্যোদয়, নানান কালোর শেডে নেমে আসা নিকষ রাত, অনেক রং একসাথে দেখে ফেললাম, মেখে ফেললাম। সাথে তিন বন্ধু ও এক সহযাত্রী চারপেয়ে রথ, ঠাট্টা তামাশা, হাসি হুল্লোড়, বন্ধুত্বের প্রগাঢ় নিবিড় রং, তাতে আছে সব রঙের বাহার। তাই ফুল ফুটুক বা না ফুটুক, পুরুলিয়া ভ্রমণ সার্থক। পরিকল্পনা মাফিক পৌঁছে যাওয়া এক এক করে। তেলকুপি ও বান্দার দেউল, দেউলঘাটা ও চেলিয়ামা গ্রাম, সবশেষে রাত্রিযাপন মুরুগুমা ড্যামের কাছে ও হাতের কাছে পাওয়া এক দুটো গন্তব্য যেমন বেগুনকোদর স্টেশন **, আদিবাসী গ্রাম ও নরাহরা ড্যাম। রাস্তায় কুড়িয়ে নেওয়া অনেক আনন্দ, সূর্য্যের মিঠেকরা রোদ, ঝরা ফুলের পাপড়ির রং, আর মুক্ত সুস্থ বাতাস। আর বেগুনকোদর স্টেশন। তথাকথিত ভূতুড়ে স্টেশন, সেই ভেবেই কৌতূহল নিবারণ করতে যাওয়া, কিন্তু না। একটি ছোট্ট মাটির খুব কাছে থাকা নিরীহ গ্রাম্য হল্ট স্টেশন। ভৌতিক নয়, খুব সুন্দর এক স্টেশন শিশু। রটনায় কান না দেওয়াই ভালো।
