One can falls for the jungle of Bethuadahari, situated near about Krishnanagar in Nadia district. It takes more or less 4 hours from Kolkata through NH 34. The forest of Shal, Segun gets deep to deeper from the entry-level, which is actually perfect enough for nature photography. But if it's about Wildlife, then, No, it's not satisfying atall. The only pond, we have seen (though the map tells of 4 ponds) reserves 4-5 Gharials. More to say, an enclosure is there, shown the Peacocks, some other species of birds , which is merely attractive . Only one 'Nilgai' is there, where maintenance is not so good. Allover, lack of maintenance has vividly shown in the sanctuary. Plants, shrubs are not properly signed in the board. Even in the bird enclosure, u can't locate the unknown species, other than the Peacocks. Unfortunately, we had with some disappointing experiences from the forest staffs. The museum near the entry gate(entry charge 2/-), will help you to reveal the stories of Nadia as well as Murshidabad district. Ticketing only with 50/- , this 170 acres of Jungle aka sanctuary, definitely can be a destination for a One day trip. (Note: arrangements are there for night stay, only then you can experience the wondering of Spotted Deer (Chital Harin), or Lengur etc.)

I went to this sanctuary with my family on 25th December, 2020...we were so exited about the place but after going there we were not satisfied by the sanctuary... N here is my honest review.. 👇 The place is not as good as other Forests because the security guards were not allowing us to go to the front of forest with foods..we know that & we were not going with foods.. We were going to forest with Christmas Cake to cut the cake... They didn’t allow that!! They started argument with us n behaved badly...when my father was going to quarry with other police or security, the main security guard started argument with him also...we were dumbfounded to see that that security was checking my father,uncle with thermal scanner n we were 7 in no. He didn’t Thermal checking with us... After that when we went to forest to see the nature n animals, we found nothing.. We only saw some beautiful peacock, a nilgai,gharials nd trees,but we listened that there were deers upto 250,butterflies, langurs...we didn’t found these😑.we were mostly dumbfounded to see that some visitors were eating, how they carried the foods??!!! Their checking process was not as tight as they were showing, saying! The maintenance of forest is not good... There were many sits to sit down but they didn’t allow us to sit there😑...we r not so much satisfied by the place... We thought that we will be satisfied but we r not...I can recommend the place for photography 🙂

I went Bethuadahari wildlife sanctuary 16-18th Aug'18 with my family. We booked WBFDC cottage by Rs. 500/- Per day through their Online booking mode. The jungle is very beautiful and dense. We felt very thrilling. You can see deer only if you stay in the forest cottage. They come near cottage after 6.ooP.m. From 8.00a.m. to 9.00a.m. before coming outside visitors you can see deer having their food at some fixed places. We could see one ''Daras' Snake the security captured from outside and freed it in the jungle in front of us and saw a small ''comodo' or ''Gosup' except the deer, 'Gharial' and some birds in the jungle. Food facility is very poor. Caretaker of the cottage can provide food but it is very costlir than outside. You only get breakfast bread, butter, omlet, benana, Ghugni and tea, cake, biscuit outside the wildlife sanctuary. For other food you have to go to Bethuadahari station or opposite side market. Auto fare from Station Rs.10/- per head. The forest cottage room & bathroom is good. Indian comode system. But there are two single bed of different size and torn bed covers and mattress. Windows are not covered by nets so it is very risky to keep open the windows at night in the jungle. Insects were entering in the room in the evening. Small type Mosquitoes are there. We could not sleep 2 nights for hotness since we had to go to bed by closing all the windows and doors. There was suffocation but we were unable to open the windows. One small 'bat' entered our room at first night and we saw it was moving outside our mosquito net. My wife got fear & screaming. Later it was flying into the room and got hurt by the running fan in the room and fall on the floor. Very much horrible. In the morning I throw it away by broom. The Securities there are very much helpful, but some of them ask for some 'Boksish' at the time of departure. We went from Kolkata station to Bethuadahari Station by Hajarduari Express. Returned by EMU local trains from Bethuadahari station to Ranaghat to Naihati to Bendal to Howrah line. You can go straight to Sealdah by EMU locals or passenger train Lalgola-Sealdah except the Express trains. You can also go by buses. You can only book 'Beduin' from Salt lake ''Aranya Bhavan' and Krishnanagar, rate Rs.1000-1200. A/C. Non A/C. facilities are there. Saheb Bangalo which is very much inside the jungle can only be booked from Salt Lake, Kolkata Aranya Bhavan which is used for Officers, MLA, MPS, ministers. You will only get it if there is no such booking. You will also get one good hotel 'Swastidipa' outside and opposite of the gate of Wildlife Sanctuary..
