- Pack according to the climate you're visiting in. Mukutmanipur is a serene town, a vacation here would be largely about spending peaceful time in the company of nature. A drive over the damn must be undertaken, to enter this road, free of cost passes are issued just by the road between 10am to 4pm. - If you're planning a weekend trip to Mukutmanipur, book your accommodation well in advance.

It was simply a terrific HIRRIBLE experience. Absolutely nothing to enjoy over there. Mython & Punchet Dam is far far better than Kanshabati Mukutmonipur Dam. And Govt will not allow to visit if you go Saturday / Sunday / Any holiday. Peerless resort is just a horrified experience. The entair cottage was covered by ANT, MOSQUITO and lots of Insects. Rate is too heigh as per as facilities concern. B/F as per their will and wish, even they will not serve you Tea and will not even let you know that Tea is included in package untill unless you you specifically ask for it. Food is too much expensive.

Holidify's Opinion

  What's Great?

Less populated, and more natural beauty. A perfect amalgam of technology and forest reserves. Less crowded tourist attraction. A serene location which provides a few moments of peacefulness to you.

  What's not so Great?

A little difficult to reach. Cannot be visited during the summer season. Fewer options for local sightseeing. Limited options regarding cuisine. If you are used to more happening places, Mukutmanipur might come off as a little bland.

For Whom

Mukutmanipur is a good place for those people who want an elegant amalgam of nature as well architectural marvels. It can also be of interest to religious people, as Mukutmanipur is an abode to beautiful temples dedicated to Jainism,
