Pleasure Trip to sundarbans


Local train from sealdah to canning are not so crowdy as we thought, it took about 1hr and 20 min to reach canning. We took the train at 8.30 in the morning and reserved a auto rickshaw form there and boarded the houseboat at Godkhali at 11 Am and the journey was started.

Delicious breakfast & mineral water served on-board


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.

Roads were bad at some points and decent journey


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.

Good journey and roads are decent


Roads were good. All food and water was supplied by our tour programmers. 25% of the way was on water. It was a good experience. Gone from Kolkata. So it took a minimum time approx 4 hrs. There other ways are also available by train or bus.

Travel with food and water


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.
