Awesome road journey to Mandarmani...

6.50/7

on February 15 I traveled to Mandarmani, West Bengal by my own car. It was a very pleasant journey. It took nearly 4 hours due to rush hour traffic. The road is awesome. Though it is very dangerous at night time. You should travel at the early morning thus you can save at least 1-1:15 hr from your journey. Do not stop for any stranger and look out for the cattle. Road from Chawalkhola to Kanthi is filled with breathtaking views. Now the administrations is widening up the roads. Thanks to them. There have plenty of hotels. So do not worry about that.

Excellent food available on the way!

Driving is fun on the trip to Mandarmani, specially on the beach. Could be dangerous during high tides. On the way, one can stop at Sher-e-Punjap dhabba for excellent food and relaxation. It is advisable to hire a driver or at least two people are good at driving to make the rotation on the long journey to avoid tiredness and enjoy the nature.

On time journey

6.00/7

The train was on time and the coach and seats were quite spacious with good leg space, clean and comfortable. The station of digha from where mandarmani is around 23 km is also good and from there we journeyed through a rented car to our resort. The roads were average. Nothing special can be seen in the train as well the car journey.

Hassle free journey to Mandarmani

6.00/7

It is always a decent journey, not too long not too short. Not much to shared for the journey. The bus leaves at 7 in morning from Esplanade and also from Golpark. You can get down at Chaulkhola and take a cab (easily available) or tractors (economical).\r\nYou should choose an AC bus which costs around 250 to 300 INR (depends) on the owners. That way, you can have a relaxed journey. But do not expect pillows, blankets, water bottles to be distributed. But you can have a good journey!

You can take super first train ticket during day journey (for second sitting) but for AC chair you have to reserve ticket before. This is only morning train you can reach Mandarmoni with in 11 am. Toilets are clean, in train food, water and other refreshments is also available. You can take Maruti from Contai Station for andarmani.
