My first suggestion is to remove your “luxury tourist” hat before stepping into the Forest Rest house – yes, although it is called a “Nature Resort”, this is no more than a Forest Rest House. Located in the deepest lap of Suntalaykhola – a mountainous stream or rivulet, you’ll find yourself surrounded by hills and gulped by deep thickets of... More

This is another hidden gem at Doors. Some may say it's just a stream passing by but the place is very beautiful for those who love nature and love to be in a serene place away from the crowd. You can just spend hours sitting by the stream or even follow the stream for some distance (one has to be... More

Suntaleykhola is a small village which is about 40 minutes drive from Chalsa via Metli and Samsing. The cottages of WBFDC is about 1 km ahead of the small village. Unless you stay in the cottage for a night or two you wont't enjoy. The place is recommended for nature lovers who loves to stay in peace. The cottages are... More

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

Well, the reviews are so true - " Good for Jungle lovers" .Well, who would not want to be in the wilderness away from the encroaching crowd that nearly leaves no space in your mind for peace while you are drowned in your hectic schedule back in the city life? If that was the question the preference would be for... More

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.

I have been in this place more than 6 times in the last couple of years. The only place to stay is WBFDC nature resort. 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
