“nice place to spend 2 days”
Review of Biharinath Hill

Ranked #2 of 22 things to do in Bankura
Attraction details
Reviewed 30 March 2018

nice place to spend 2 days. Not much to do but just spend days by travelling on foot, climbing hills a bit. I stayed at WBSEDCL accommodations. Rooms are small compared to price but clean. No phone, No TV, No Wifi. The AC suits consist of two bedrooms and a common space and these rooms are provided to different boarders. If you book the whole suit for family and friends it is good. Foods are provided by outsider. Locationwise this is the best property. A good initiative of West Bengal governmen.t .Overall, I enjoyed the simplicity fo the people around and the location.

After reading few reviews of Biharinath Hills, last week visited the Place. To reach Biharinath Hill one can hire private cars available outside of Asansol Station, roads to the location is good and in few places there are rough patches. The USP of the road to travel from Station to Biharinath is the wooden bridge on the Damodar river. Travelling time will be near about forty five minutes approx.
Nearby area to the hills are serene, pleasant and full of greenery. One can stay at the private hotel or at the hotel of Forest department which needs to be booked through their website.
There are very few options of shops and eateries, people generally close their shops by 07:30 pm.
Particular in Biharinath there is much to see but one can move around nearby areas making Biharinath as the halt.

This was my first visit in Biharinath. The hill is the tallest in Bankura district of West Bengal. Lush green and pleasant surrounding soothing to the mind. River Damodar is nearby. Do not try to venture or swim in this river, there may be quicksand here and there, better ask locals.

Biharinath is near to Raniganj station around 50 minutes drive. Road condition somewhere OK, some places BAD particularly in monsoon, but splendid atmosphere mesmerizing anyone.

There is a temple of Lord Shiva, known as Biharinath Dham. One can trek up to the
top of the hill with the help of a local guide, 1-2 hrs it may take. Be careful in monsoon, the path to the hill is slippery.

The staying option is very limited and basic. We stayed in Biharinath Tourist Point. OK for 1/2 nights but irritating mosquitoes are ready to bite! No mosquito net provided by the owner.
There is another good option for staying is in WB Govt. forest Guest House. Online booking is possible, service is not good as well as a problem in power backup. Location of this guest house is very nice.

There are many nearby tourist attractions, like Joy Chandi hill, Garpanchakot, Baranti etc. We visited nearby places and our base station was Biharinath.

This place offers the killer combination of Temple, Jungle and Hill. There's something for everyone ranging from nature lovers to worshippers.
Located at the foot of the hill the temple is a popular one among the locals who come here to offer their prayers.
If someone is coming by bike I would suggest to come via Saltora of Bankura as the road offers great view and winding roads every biker craves for.

Had been Biharinath many times even when there was no existence of Biharinath Tourist Point(8017202499), the only true accommodation of Biharinath. I along with my family member had to stay at other accommodation but went Biharinath for its unique natural beauty. High hills, dense forest, water bodies, springs, river Damodar and above all most revered place of entire Rarh Bengal, the place of Lord Biharinath(Shiva) where every wish gets fulfilled.It is a salubrious place and water is panacea. But very few people are aware of this place. But one should visit the place as early as possible because once there will be a concrete bridge over river Damodar(may be a year or two), the place will be populous as many people from Asansol and Burnpur will constuct there house here.
