Can I plan to travel there in August ?
Krishnandu SarkarJuly 26, 2017 at 1:48 PM
Hi Pradip, I don’t think August would be a good time to visit this place. As you have to sail through the river, it can quite by risky during monsoon.
PradipJuly 26, 2017 at 2:09 PM
Can you suggest weekend destination (2-3 nights from Kolkata) in August time??
Krishnandu SarkarJuly 26, 2017 at 2:15 PM
Hi Pradip, There are lots, but it depends on your preferences. How about A Trip To Baranti & Garpanchkot?
PradipJuly 26, 2017 at 5:34 PM
I have already visited Garpanchakot , Can you suggest any other weekend destionation for August
Krishnandu SarkarJuly 26, 2017 at 8:33 PM
Haha!! Frankly speaking, I’m more inclined towards hills and thus I haven’t covered much of South Bengal. So if you are looking for something beyond the common Digha, Mandarmoni, Bakkhali etc. then you may check Bangriposi or even Daringbadi in Odisha. Or if you have around 4 days, you can even plan Chitrakoot Falls in Chattisgarh.
If you are into historic places then how about Bishnupur and/or places around Birbhum & Bankura.
If you are looking for offbeat places, you may check Bawali or Duarsini, . I’m yet to explore the same too 🙂
