Can you suggest an itinerary for Durgapur?

Once you step into Durgapur, the first thing you do is sort your accommodations. The city centre area is full of hotels. Next, you could probably grab a quick lunch from one of the local restaurants. Then you head for the Durgapur Barrage. The beautiful place will take at least a few hours to explore and take in. A local fisherman can be hired, who'll take you into the waters. After that, proceed to the next unique place Durgapur has to offer- The Steel Plant. The plant offers a variety of breathtaking views. Visitor area is restricted in the fully operational plant but it is worth your time. If you get free really early, then head towards Bhabani Pathak's Tilla, but only if you get free by 4:00 PM - 5:00 PM as the Tilla closes at night. The maze of tunnels has its own unique charm. Else, close the day with a relaxing stroll in Kumarmangalam Park
