Sundargram

“Sundargram” Is a concept to promote sustainable rural tourism by nurturing the nature and creating livelihood opportunity for the rural local people. We believe that nature has a strong hold in human life. If we want to develop a healthy life a healthy nature is obvious.

Sundargram is situated approx 30 kms from the Scient City, EM Bypass, amidst the mother nature where our guests can enjoy pure and natural life of the village. The serenity of the mother earth is all around Sundargram.

Only here one can wake-up in the morning by the sweet whistle of birds, experience the smell of the earth and the lush green surroundings. Here you just close your eyes and feel the peace prevails all around.

Sundargram is created with a special attention not to disrupt the village atmosphere and restore the age old concept of natural living in mud house with wooden top. Our guests can enjoy the mud-house stay and open dining in Gazibo on bamboo tables & chairs. Can do fishing at the pond.

It will be a lifetime experience to interact with the local villagers. They love to talk with people and share their age old belief and thought with others. Guests can experience local sightseeing and can go for famous fish market at Malancha.

So in a nutshell, for those who are fond of village life or interested to experience the way of rural living, Sundargram can be a ultimate destination with a package of raw nature surrounding by ethnic village life very close to Kolkata.

Our pond is teeming with fish like Mrigel, Rohu, Katla, Mourala and few others. You can enjoy “catch and release” angling with local fishing rods made of cane. The local village boy can also give you some lessons on how to cast a fishing net. If you have your own angling equipment, then you can bring them too.
