Unique concept of village tourism perfectly blended with heartfelt hospitality has ensured tourist leave with a lasting impression. Not to miss out the sumptuous food and musical extravaganza which was truly, enjoyable. Full moon night, bright colors of holi, songs, adda river cruise and pottery classes. We all enjoyed all of it. Hope to come back with friends and family many more times.

In a word very excellent in all aspects. Hospitality as well as the ambience after Monchasha will be remembers for a long time to come. Creativity of the organizers demand some new approach. I stayed here for 2 nights and 3 days. I go to my destination keeping this impression in my mind that I shall have priority to hope this spot while I shall think over staying for weekend tour near Kolkata.

Great concept and well executed staff was very friendly and hospitable. Entire stay felt like being at home. Excellent food- authentic Bengali food (especially liked the cchicken & the luchi/alu). Only comment would be to create someactivity if we were to stay more than I visit. First passed by easily but need to do something if we stay larger …..may be some trekking trials or cycling etc. other than that everything was excellent.

Being to monchasha is like being to a distant relative who lives in a village and who loves to be host to the hooligans of the city and give them a lesson on what is life is about i.e. love, simplicity and nature. Monchasha gives you a impression of being your second home where you come to recharge your soul. It was a repeat value for nature friendly crowd. A gem of a place in West Bengal.

“idyllic experience”

Review From A Friend

if you are looking for an offbeat peaceful weekend getaway from kolkata – this place is definitely worth a consideration.

aesthetic, artistic & minimalistic (covers the basics) the ambience transcends to a serene bengali rural hamlet in its full natural glory.

the proprietors are too eager to look after all your comforts + needs. the veggies are garden fresh. the taste of local fish is also an attraction for foodies like me

the elevated cottages with one room + bathroom + balconies is good enough for 4 adults

Carry your own towels if you are not used to the “gaamchha”. NO A/C

we have developed four octagonal bamboo huts, fully covered with local hogla leaves, straw thatched roof and windows with north south cross ventilation. attached bath area with all modern amenities, local styled bamboo furniture, general utility tools, neatly crafted river facing verandah and common areas will certainly please your mind.

keeping in mind the local climatic condition we have used local products as hogla, khor (straw), bans (bamboo), tal (palm tree), jhau (tamarisk) which made “mon chasha” more eco-friendly. according to the local experience both hogla and khor have a natural power to control the room temperature. as we use, we have already planted new palm plants & bamboo grove over and near the  project site for providing a comfortable shady area and maintaining the balance of ecological replacement. using 100% local labour & artisans we have tried to focus upon the rural development & positive poverty alleviation factor.

When the bricks and mortars of the city life start taking a toll of your sensibilities and you get fragmented in balancing yourself between work and life, reclaim your life with a detour from the deadpan city life by taking a three hour drive (from Kolkata city) to Monchasa.
The property and its natural contours are a clear departure from the luxury of a resort but the amenities aren’t frugal. The details of the personalized attention will certainly ensure a sense of accomplishment of having decided on a property that clearly qualifies as ‘home-away-from-home’ but for the tranquility that brings the child in you. Sumptuous food, adequate provisions, uninterrupted village walks and the bonding are a sure bonus. Lens happy guests will have no complains for the variety of subjects outsmarts the limitations of light and the silhouette. Cleanliness, security and promptness are the hallmark of the place. Go and reclaim your life!

If you are seeking peace of mind and want to rejuvenate, Mon Chsha is an ideal place for you.
Or if you want to experience rural living far away from the madding crowd, swim in a pond, spend the afternoon laying on the hammock and listening Rabindra sangeet, or want to replenish your fishing skill then you must visit Mon chasha. Its only two an half hours journey from kolkata ( on way to Digha). They have four cottages each of which can accommodate four people. Each cottages have a balcony overlooking the river(stream). The washrooms maintain a proper degree of hygiene. We (my wife and myself) visited in the month of march. We were under the impression that it will be too hot. But surprisingly it was quite pleasant and we enjoyed our stay very much. The food was good and tasty.They serve the food at their dining place which itself is a nice place to relax. The sky at night is full of stars. We enjoyed a lovely evening chatting with the owners. Really appreciate the way the owners are keeping this place. Hospitality is worth a mention. We will definitely visit again.

Monchasha is a wonderful place for weekend trip near Kolkata. The place is full with fresh air, fresh food and lot of other freshness. After the hustle and bustle of city life we have been rejuvenated staying there. The stuffs of the place is very well behaved and helpful. The food is very tasty and authentic village food. There is orphanage in the Paushi village, it is also a must see destination, One can see that even a middle class person, along with a small but dedicated workforce can help not less than 70 orphan boys and girls, a great work for humanity to my understanding. In short it is must see place to visit.

Stayed May 2013, traveled with family

Just a three hour drive from Kolkata city via Kolaghat, there lies nestled on the river side of Baghda, a beautiful eco-village called Mon Chasha. It was a hot and sultry May morning when 8 of us left for this little known destination. I was frankly quite doubtful about the prospects. being a complete city girl , I could not imagine living in a thatched bamboo hut without air-conditioning and other comforts.And am I glad I actually visited the place ? Oh my god, a thousand times yes!!it is picturesque, tranquil, clean and offers excellent service. The location is amazing.Each of the four cottages have an attached bath with modern toilet facilities and yet the walls are made of Bamboo and even the stands are wooden or handcrafted. The cottages have en-Suite balcony facing the river and one can spend hours sitting there watching the dykes, the not so distant villages and hear the occasional honking of a car or trekker passing the highway a mile away. It’s a photographer’s paradise, with a variety of birds, a purple sunset or the slow sunrise changing the sky from dark blue to streaks of orange and then a bright gold.

Time passes slowly at Mon Chasha but entertainingly. The host couple- Nilanjan and Debjani are charming. They warmly welcome you and soon make you forget that this is a hotel and you have met these people just a few hours ago. Like long lost friends or oft encountered ones, they share a camaraderie with young and the old and they welcome pets just as they welcome people. Our dog, all of 5 months, quickly became firm friends with everyone there and has promised them with joyful barks to return soon.

And for activities–why not take a dip in the pond with stone steps or see fish frolicking in the dark waters of it? Maybe your inner child will take you towards the Tyre-swings or if you are a little less rebellious chose the sedate, sturdy swings and slowly rock yourself.There’s a potter’s wheel for inspection and a “Dheki” which works! If you plan earlier, the hosts will arrange a pottery class or a ride in a small boat in the river . When the sun slowly disappears in the horizon, no one even remembers the small t.v. set kept in the cottage. Young or old, everyone sits around the courtyard, chatting with a cup of hot ” chai”(tea), muri(puffed rice) and pakoras while strings of bengali songs float in the air. Want a soiree? Pick up the harmonium , mridanga or other musical instruments kept there and have an impromptu jam session.The food is excellent and served in quaint brass utensils which remind you of a forgotten era. Maybe it’s the homely touch that increases your appetite or the water, but you end up eating every morsel and after a second helping don’t regret the excess at all!!

The place literally blew me away, as the wind was fast and continuous but the surrounding, the tranquility, the greenery and the service all added to the experience.
Kudos to the developers. Spare a few moments of your busy lives and visit this beautiful , quaint place. You will feel rejuvenated as I was.

A story telling performance in the form of rhythmic songs by showing their own hand crafted pictures of gods is the most important rural art of Bengal. The picture is called as “Pot Chitro” – a traditional and rural art form of Bengal since middle ages. It is also a tool of villager’s entertainment solution. Amazing!

The painter is called as “chitrokor” or “chitrakar”. In most of the cases the painters act role of a poet and present ancient mytlogical stories related with gods of india. On a cloth based canvas the artists portrayed these verses with natural colours and motifs. The age-old folk art survived centuries to tell the tale.

BHIM PUJA :: a rural festival of bengal


puja pandal of bhim mela > year 2013

“Bhim Mela” – a popular fair of rural bengal is happening now over at Dakshin Baroj area very near to “mon chasha ecotourism project”. The special event will continue for 9 days from 21st February till 1st of March 2013. Every year on the Bhim Chaturdashi Tithi – Bengali Month Falgun the festival used to commence with an extraordinary enthusiasm of the local folks of East Midnapore District, West Bengal, India. The management invited us and I have visited the fair on the starting date and enjoyed the opening cetemony with my wife Debjani. Got to know some imporyant informations about this unknown tradition of rural Bengal. Please go through the pictorial story for some detail of “Bhim Mela”.


the idol of bhim & duryodhan @ bhim mela

According to the epic “Mahabharata” – “Bhim” used to be the most strongest person and one of the brother of reknowned “Pandav’s”, who won the war with “Duryodhan” – the most important person of the 100 brother and one sister “Kaurav Family”. At the end Bhim killed Durjodhan. The village people celebrate this auspicious event as a festival now from their core of heart. They think that their beloved “Bhim” will save them from all the evils and enemies and they used to attend this fair to offer a “puja”. Now-a-days this simple “puja” turned to an eventful festival for the entertainment lovers of East Midnapore villagers.


decorative models @ bhim mela

Lot of this type models decorate the event arena which can be an added attraction for the fair visitors. Each model symbolises the facts of “Mahabharata” and also some contemporary issues of modern life.

game counter at bhim mela

Soft gamble related to Playing Cards, Number games add colour to the said “Bhim Mela”. This games are very much popular to the local people. Over at Bengal, festivals are one of the major entertainment tool for the farmers, fishermen, potters, shop owners, suppliers and the daily waged labour groups. Not only them but also to the housewifes these fairs are the most important event after their daily life schedule. So still now “Jatra Pala”, “Kobir Lorai”, “Kathokata”, “Kirton – Sonkirton”, “Mela”, “Parbon”, “Sonkranti” plays important role to supply direct oxygen to the local hard lifers of rural bengal.




You can also enjoy the cultural programs performed by local villagers and their guests coming from outside. The festival management arange different “Jatrapala” based on both ancient and modern topics with traditional cultural events, games in this continue 9 day fair.

With the “Puja Rituals” you can also experience the “Bom Gaach” – a bomb tree, which is fired as an offering to “Bhim God”. In this corner of rural Bengal this is one of the important factor of all puja festivals where “Manasik”s are done with these amazing bomb tree offerings.


In Bengal “Mela” (Fair) means “Milan” (Social Attachment) which cannot be completed without “Paapar Bhaja” (Fried Papad) and “Hot Jilipi”, “Kotkoti” – types of sweet item. So according to the demand local villegers operate small stalls with the support of mela comitee and sell their items. You can have a look over to these Food – Costume Jewellery – Cooking Utensils – Sports Items and also vegetables, fish shops in this festival arena.


We are overwhelmed by the welcome note we got from the Mela Management and Local Panchayet. They have given us a grand welcome on stage and the
guests of “mon chasha” enjoyed the fair a lot – also suggested some new ideas to the fair comitee for the betterment and future planning of “Bhim Mela”.

Please visit this event and you can experience the hidden treasures of bengal villages. Through these fairs you can feel the rustic but romantic village life of Bengal.

Behalf of “mon chasha ecotourism project”, we have already supported this wonderful event in every aspect. In future also we will spread our hands to them.

To “mon chasha” – Bengal is Beautiful, Bengal is Simple, Bengal is Live here. – Still Life in Bengal.

See you there. mon chasha.
