Katwa Jol Baari, awarded the best homestay by the West Bengal tourism.
Connecting with nature, they say, is one of the most therapeutic alternatives for those stressed out with an ever demanding urban lifestyle. Amidst the humdrum melancholy of the routine life, a weekend gateway providing an opportunity to stroll alongside a river, raft in a nearby lake watch dolphins in their natural habitat is a blessing to behold, more so if it is barely a 3-hour drive from Kolkata.
Katwa Jol Baari offers to the travelers a truly genuine experience of life in a rural Indian set up. There are two waterfront cottages which are well decked with all the modern day amenities from inside. The travelers can also experience spending the chilly nights in tents over the grassland.
The best time to visit would be during the monsoons, when the dark clouds rolling over the green fields, the experience of fishing in the flowing Shibai River offer a never before experience to travelers.
