Long drives

The suntale stream best place for long drives with your friends or family . This road is just relaxing with all the tea plantations and orange trees around and you need to visit there to know what it really feels like . Away from the city for a perfect weekend. Seeing is believing.

Mental Peace

We travelled this place in the year 2014. Place was awesome. You will find mental peace here. We stayed at Rocky island Homestay (Sukhen Da- 9434012590) just beside the River Murti. The sound of the river and the fresh air created an awesome ambience there . . We hired a Bolero and went too hydral project Suntalekhola and Neora Valley forest. Bengali Cuisine available here. Great place for 2 days stay. We booked ticket in KanchanKanya Express from sealdah to New Mal junction and called Sukhen Da to pick up. The ride from New Mal to Sam sing is awesome. Between the tea gardens.
