Visited in the mid of monsoon. Really enjoyed the rain. Before visiting Suntalekhola didn't enjoy rain so much. the only problem we felt was of insects and leech. The awesome hanging bridge,the brook, forest patches of cloud and hide and seek of Sun and cloud.... heavenly feeling

Suntalekhola is an awesome hilltop village. The road to the destination is amazing. Few minutes of shower can gives you a completely different view of this place. Fresh and Mesmerizing.

Sadly, the maintenance and cleanliness of the resort has degraded over the last couple of years and now they have come up with some tented accommodations also to make the place even more clumsy. If... More

You can hear the parrots, nurture the trees, and spend quality time with your loved one or family. Roam around.... in between full greenery.... with the... More

After reaching New Mal station, take a Cab, which will cost around Rs.900 and again tell the driver to take you back on... More
