Raichak On Ganges

Raichak is a pretty unknown place though it is very near to Kolkata, just 9o minutes away. It is not so famous in Bengal and only known for the fishermen dominated area of Bengal.

It is a kind of traditional river side village where shops are very little in quantity, the houses are made of muddy soil and the main economy is on fishing. Fishing nets are spreaded all over, '8' O clock at night means the end of the whole day and most them are in deep sleep.
Some benefits are there though like clean air, no noise at all and endless greenery.

51 K.M. away from Kolkata and you are in nature heaven Raichak Ffort. It is a luxury resorts with seven star hotel, bird sacntuary (Pakhiralaya), Ganga Kutir. The idea behind this great architectural creation is to have all kind of complete infrastructure there with resorts, spa, residential units, business conference and infinity pool.
