One Day Itinerary

Day 1- Reach Purulia in the morning and unwind for a while. Then set out to enjoy the beauty of Doldanga. This place is slowly catching up as a picnic spot with a deer park, boat rides and a mesmerising water body around. After spending a few hours, you can head to Baranti Reservoir to catch a glimpse of the magnificent sunset.

Wonderful place. Many areas yet to discover.

Make sure to carry enough water with you since the water available in Purulia is not purified everywhere. There is a dearth of taxis. However, buses, totos and cycle-rickshaws are available. The places of stay at Purulia are not satisfactory. The guest house I was staying at had unclean washrooms and bedding. So, make sure to check-in at the right accommodation. Also, carry mosquito repellent with you if you do not want to be a victim of mosquito bites. Purulia is a dusty place so if you are allergic to dust or have other breathing difficulties owing to it, then make sure to take preventive measures accordingly.

- The connecting train from Howrah which runs to Purulia runs on all days except for Saturday.
- The reservation to the government rest houses open well in advance, find out all the necessary details online.
