“Suntalekhola - Nature Retreat”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 May 2014

Suntalekhola is located around 6 Kms from the samsing tea estates and is an ideal nature retreat, getting lost amongst the lush green environment, continuous melody of the flowing river water and the chirping of the birds around you.

There are accommodation facilities offered by the West Bengal Forest Department in this location.The place could be visited for couple of hours as a part of Jhalong-Bindu-Samsing road trip.

“Suntalekhola”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 March 2014

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

“Best short distance tour from kolkata”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 January 2014

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.

“Peace and tranquility”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 December 2013

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.
