The last words in Nature Tourism. Experience whisper with forests, mountain streams, and orange orchids.there are two beautiful forest bunglow in Suntalekhola. Suntalekhola is truly an offbeat destination in the Himalayan foothills of Dooars in the backdrop of glistering green and blue sky with touch of everlasting beauty

Very peace and good for honeymoon couple. We stay at WBFDC cottage with 20+ people. It was a official trip but we all like it. Only suggestion there are no light in the street so we can't move from hotel at night.

We visited Suntalekhola and opted for Suntalekhola river camp owned and managed by WBFDC. The area is still devoid of any tourist and is still untouched. We stayed there for one night. We could here the cluttering of the small stream throughout the night. The tents were clean and well lit and spacious. the bathroom had a geyser. Blankets and quits provided were clean. It is the best place to run away from your daily madness. Make sure you ask the local cook to prepare the desi murgi (of late it is the best chicken curry i had). The food was simple and delicious. The pokoras were the addons to the visit. Please be advised this is a remote place and you wont get any amenities.

Very few people have ever heard of it. Fewer go there. That is the beauty of this place. Some stereotype tourists visit this place for 15 minutes or so, take a few snaps (although they are not allowed to enter in the WBFDC cottage premises) as a proof that they have spent money or to post in facebook (which is again has become a craze for middle class bengali travellers). But if you really want to enjoy the serene beauty of the place, you have to spend a night or two in this place. Private hotels are not available. A few homestays are avalable, but not recommended. Avail Kanchankanya Express from Sealdah in the evening, and get down at New Mal Junction next morning at around 9.30 am. Private cabs are available at Rs. 1000/- or so during peak season. An hour journey through various tea estates and you reach the real paradise on earth. You should not expect all modern amenities at this remote place. But the essential things are available with a bonus of the smiling faces of Nepalese staffs. No cigerette, no wine, nothing is available within 5 km. So you have to take everything, except the food, which is served at very reasonable rate (controlled by WBFDC) and the quality is good enough.

I made no honeymoon at Suntalekhola but I wish I could - the small picture post card set up of this village is just splendid - thanks to West Bengal Forest Development Corporation few cottages with very basic amenities are available here - this is an ideal spot for weekend.If you are in a group please ensure that in evening an open adda session takes place under open sky with streaming coffee & hot veg pakoda.A melancholy of R D Burman number will be just a cherry over the melting ice cream - go for it.
