The western most district in the state of West Bengal, Purulia is a beautiful destination blessed with mesmerizing natural beauty.
Purulia is slowly becoming a popular tourist spot amongst national tourists, the township is well connected with the rest of the country and gifts a breakaway from the monotonous routines of the day to day city lives. The serenity in the air gets onto you and in a mere moment, you are relieved from your stress. Its not the air which is magical, it is the majestic landscape which does it for you. Hills, lush greenery, clear water, fresh air, warm hospitality. You will like it.
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.

Purulia is very well connected through Indian Railways. The main junction is connected with many long distance trains coming from major cities. The nearest airport is the Birsa Munda Airport which ... (Read More)
