  • It was the first hydel project to come up in West Bengal, with the assistance of the Canadian government. Very beautifully situayed.  more »
  • Baskichak (Massanjor dam) Very calm and peaceful place. Best time to visit is around sunrise and sunset for an awesome breathtaking experience.  more »
  • The vast land full of water surrounding by small green hills is really a fantastic view. Far away from locality, the place is ideal to spend a day with dear company. The beautiful curvy paths leading to the villages far away and suddenly lost from view in the zigzag hills are so beautiful. You can enjoy boating too in the water. If visiting in monsoon, you can experience the amazing view of opening lock gates and the demonic rush of water.
  • It is a very nice place for short trip. Nature is very beautiful. If you come that place at morning or afternoon noon time it will be more enjoyable. It is too hot place at mid day. There is a boating facility you can enjoy with river. Can come with family or friends.
