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

Room Tip: Carry your own towels if you are not used to the "gaamchha". NO A/C

If you are a person who can communicate with mother nature in her language, Monchasha is the perfect place for you...refreshing, serene, peaceful. the place where you can re-discover your own swwet self in the cradle of mother nature. It has captured the real essence of Eco-tourism, peserving the real meaning of " ecology" & "ethology" in all respect. If you are a keen bird-watcher or entomologist, this place is a must visit since you can find a lot of birds & insects that too in their natural habitat. This is definately a place for people who prefers cool composed environmentthat can nurture hidden or long forgotten talents like- art music or writing..... Both Nilanjan & Debjani Basu are always at the edge of their seat to make you feel at home ....... for foodies " Good News"- excellent bengali cuisine and sumptuous portions- definately the taste " maa-er hath-er ranna" . Air feels light loaded with oxygen. And when you come back you are full with lovely and lively moments which are worth treasuring.... Would always love to visit Monchasha again and again!!!!

I visited Monchasha during Nov 2013, with my family. Heard a lot about this place, so expectation was high. After 02 nights & 3 days of stay, I was overwhelmed by the experience. I travel a lot throughout India & have stayed at trekkers hut to star hotels. Believe me, the personal touch they add to their hospitality is the best I have ever experienced. Food is excellent, authentic bengali cuisine. Meticulous about combination & varieties of foods.
Interacting with their staffs, Kanai Pal - the rickshaw puller, Kanai Bhaumik & Tushar Maiti the artisans will make you feel like you know them for years.

Had several adda sessions, with Nilanjan & Debjani Basu, the proprietor of this property. These people are really "jolly good fellow". Thanks for creating & maintaining MONCHASHA in West Bengal. Thanks for everything !!!

Room Tip: Select Corner room. Visit Paushi Village & interact with the people & artisans, it will be...

In bengali chash means cultivation. good cultivation gives us good crop. I usually tell people that, Mon-Chasha is also a place for cultivation. Here the crop is your mind, your sole. Going there, I bet, one will get the opportunity to cultivate his sole/mind for a new/fresh journey.
thank you Mon-Chasha, keep your journey on...............

This is not another eco-tourism project to me. I find so called eco-tourism a fashion to urban people who mostly dont feel the nature. Its a good topic nowadays to discuss in a living room or any urban gathering. One should not grade Mon-Chasha with those so-called fashion topic. Because, it means really drive to the nature and feel the sole with lots of good food, ethnic bengali culture etc.
somebody may feel that the tariff is high. But I differ. because you would get a good double bed room in hotel not less than rs 2000 minimum. here @ mon-chasha, accommodation is rs 3000 for 4 persons and the rooms is enough specious.
now come to food tariff. that is also less than any other hotel package for a day. here you may get some good local sweets from a nearby shop.

still, somebody may think, it is not worthy. But I bet, you cant get a nice place to feel your root.

Vast greens under a light blue sky ~ waking up to the chirping of birds~ intriguing huts made of bamboo and thatch, with all modern conveniences inside ~a balcony which overlooks a gurgling rivulet ~ the air smells more fresh ~ the breeze feels more smooth ~ Mon Chasha is an experience everyone living close by should treat oneself with!And lest I forget the sheer gastronomic delight laid out, in true Bengali style complete with " kashar bash on" from "ghee bhaja to chutney mishti". If u happen to meet the wonderful owners duering your visit who are often there, they will tell you that it was their dream project, proceeds of which go to the orphanage next door. It might have been their dream project but it will also be your dream holiday ~ close to Kolkata and capturing the essence of Bengal
