Bankiput is an unexplored virgin sea beach nearby Contai (Kanthi). Bankiput is perfect for people looking for a quick weekend gateway from Kolkata, away from the maddening crowd at Digha and/or Mandarmoni. Although our plan was to visit Junput, which we thought to be another pristine sea beach nearby Contai (Kanthi), but upon enquiring with Mr. Roy regarding accommodation at Junput Resort, he informed us that the resort at Junput is ongoing renovation and the same is not available for booking as of now. Instead he suggested us to try Bankiput and also informed us that they have a...Read More

The idea was to do nothing and just relax that also within a shoe string budget requiring no more than a weekend, as we all had to join office on Monday.

As usual, I took up the charge to scan through the details and fix on one of them....Read More
The idea of exploring Sundarban, the other part of the nature was silently implanted in my mind long ago from updates in various travel forums that I follow. Finally the idea was nurtured by my friend-cum-philosopher-cum-(mis)guide Avik on a casual gathering at Dilip Da’s place.
