This wasn't too bad a journey given that I got to see the West Bengal countryside in all its beauty. The roads were bad at some points and half-decent at others. However, it really helps to take a trusted driver rather than hire a cab service.

I went for a holiday with my cousin to this resort and needless to say, it was an enjoyable experience.

The bus was arranged by Sundeep Chourasia and they book it online. It was very satisfying experience and had a very comfortable journey. Nice delicious breakfast/snacks on-board with mineral water and fruity. It's full value for money.

Natural beauty on the road side is excellent. Food shops are available on road side. Toilets are also available on the road. Journey is comfortable. Journey from Kolkata via Minakha to Godhakhali takes little over 2 hours, thereafter you have to go by boat. This is shortest route.. Taking snacks and light food along will be an advantage for sure.
