Eco Park in Kolkata is a tourist hotspot.You have number of activities to choose from when you are inside the park, how ever one thing that stood out for me was Zorbing! Yes you heard me right, Kolkata now has its own water Zorbing!!
It was Christmas Eve and we decided to go for a laid back walk in the Eco Park..but who knew this walk wouldn't be laid back anymore! You get to zorb in the lake inside the park at 300 INR per pax.pretty cheap!
Unlike the round ones that we usually have for Zorbing ,this one was cylinderical in shape. So at one go,3 pax could zorb.
We zorbed almost 100 meters from the jetty where we got inside the zorb ball. It was such a fun experience! At first you feel like you have the control over the direction where you are heading to ,but after a certain point you start going hayway!
It was me along with two Delhi boys and I think we did a pretty good job with the zorb!
Across the jetty where I zorbed,you get to see this wonderful cafe named "Ekante". The setting of this cafe is simply superb.
We gorged on some scrumptious Bengali meal at Cafe Ekante and I believe the dinner here was an icing on the cake after the zorbing!
