Karagpur

Kharagpur is famous for IIT and although there are no major tourist attractions in Kharagpur. However, if you move somewhat 150 km around it, there are places like Kolkata, Digha, Haldia and Sunderbans that serve as excellent weekend getaways.

Sanjay: Visit to Sunderbans is a must for nature lovers. What I like most is the peaceful and noiseless environment of Sunderbans. Here you will get to listen the music of birds is you are a bird lover.

A Trip to Munger

I had been to Munger by road in the month of August 2016. Munger is a must-visit in the tourism circuit of Bihar. The must-visit attractions around Munger include the Bhimbandh Wildlife Sanctuary, the Bihar School of Yoga and the Munger Fort. The Bhimbandh Wildlife Sanctuary derives its name from the fact that Bhim of the grand epic Mahabharat built a dam here. The Sanctuary is spread over a land mass extending to 682 square kilometers. Lot of wild animals can be easily spotted here. There are a couple of hot springs also in this natural wonder. The Bihar School of Yoga is of profound assistance in medical research and development of Yogic Science and is located on the banks of the Ganga river. The Munger fort is built on top of a hill and has 4 gateways and spread over a land mass stretching up to 222 square kilometers.
