Route Map of Monchasha

The Road Route From Kolkata :

Kolkata – Vidyasagar Setu – Uluberia – Bagnan – Kolaghat – Nimtori – Nandakumar – (Towards Digha) Chandipur – Henria – Kalinagar

For Your Reference :: Nandakumar To Kalinagar Bus Stop Is 35 Km only


* If you miss to track the KM at “Nandakumar Island” then please note that the distance between “Henria” (A Major Crossing before Kalinagar) To “Kalinagar Bus Stop” Is only 7 Km.

Take A Right Turn From Kalinagar Bus Stop. A Pink Coloured Kali Temple Is Situated On The Crossing. Drive 5.5 Km Straight Along A Blacktop Road. Ask for Paushi Village. Enroute Cross A Rail Line (Without Level Crossing) & 2 Small Temples (Nagraj Basuki Mandir & Kali Mandir). After This 5.5 Km Ride You Will Find A Moram Road (Laterite Red) On Right Side (Condition > Bad :: Length > 400 Meter). At The End You Have To Cross A Bridge Which Has 2 Exits. Take The Left Exit & After 7 – 8 Shops Take A Left Turn Once Again. Go On For 100 Meters, Crossing A Sluice Gate Along With “Bagda River” & You Will Find “Monchasha”.

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.

On 15th March 2014 Ashish Kapur Wrote:

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.

We started from Kolkata for Monchasha with great enthu but last times of drive changed my mind and mood but as soon as we entered the premises I was tongue tied seeing such a peaceful place in midst of nature. My depression vanished and mood changed & we all were glooming with happiness. Out of the world hospitality, with a personal touch. Good organic food & well cooked. Wishing Monchasha all the best.

On 13th March 2014 Ishtiaque Ahmed Wrote:

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.

It was a dream comes true. I never expected such hospitality in this place. The design of this place is very good. As an architect I really liked your design. At last a heart full thanks and look forward to stay here in future.


To live with the head held high amidst the lap of sylvan pastures, where the mind becomes fearless, where the swings ushers in our childhood & the heart feels free to explore in irrational pleasures …. It’s that place where our soul streams out loud, away from the maddening rush & hustle & bustle of the man made forest  made of concrete ….
