Please book online from WBFDC site. Remember that the booking starts exactly 90 days in advance from 12:00 midnight and there is substantial rush. It is advisable to book Cottages 3,4,5 or 6 for a wider view. Good Luck!

Hi I want to visit this beautiful place Suntalekhola. I understand that it is possible to book the WBFDCL River Camp online. I plan to go by driving my own car. So I want to know how is the road? Is it good enough to drive to the camp? Also how are the facilities? Is this place safe for a four years child? Thanks in advance.
