On a lazy Sunday evening we, a group of seven lads were mooching together and were pretty much exhausted with the ridiculous daily schedule. We were starving for a serious change for at least three - four days. Generally when a bangali thinks about an outing they plan for nowhere other than "Digha" most of the time. Dipayan suggested that as expected and was rebuked by everyone out there. I suggested to plan for an offbeat destination of North Bengal though monsoon has already turned out to be a Devastating Giant in the "Pahars of Bengal" and it's really hard to find the essance of elegance of North Bengal in the monsoon. Everybody nodded and agreed on the suggestion and started to surf Google, blogs, travel diaries for next few days and after a battle of deliberations and objections between several proposals we finally settled on "Kolakham, a bliss of wildness".
We planned just three weeks advanced for the same and as monsoon already became active, it was easy to settle the date and get a reservation for the train as well as for the homestay.
