Next KAC Trip - Purbasthali 21st Feb'16

Postby arnab » Mon Jan 25, 2016 12:34 pm

After the successful collection trip we had earlier this month, we have decided to explore more habitats this winter.

Our next destination would be Oxbow Lake at "Purbasthali" (Bardhaman district). You may search internet to explore more on the place.

Here's the wiki link - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Purbasthali

We would try to post few pics of flora or fauna captured by our forum members only who already have visited the place.

So here you go with the details:

Destination- Oxbow Lake at "Purbasthali"

Date- 21st Feb'16 Sunday

Reporting Time- TBD (it should as early as possible)

Reporting Place- TBD (people can board train from their convenient stations as well)

Journey Route- Train to Purbasthali station, then Cycle Van. (early morning train from Howrah or Sealdah. To be decided as per everyone's convenience)

Cost / Expenditure- We may need to hire local boats for roaming around the habitat and accessing ideal places to collect specimens. As confirmed by forum members (frequent visitor to the place) we can only cover 1/20th of the lake on walk. Hence hiring boat could be necessary. Hence there would some expenses involved of Rs.150-200 per head (lunch + breakfast+ Train/Van fare excluded).

We can assure you it would be another wonderful trip close to the nature :)
-----------------------------------

Hurry up and post your names if you are interested in joining us. If you are unsure of your participation, then please hold on and post your name only when you are confirm. I would really appreciate a list of confirmed participants rather than a long list of tentative entries.

Also please don't hesitate to give your suggestions and post your queries. Lets all make this another successful trip :)

5:30 am may be a bit early, Couldn't make the last one due to health. Hence playing it safe. If things go alright, I will join the group. Will confirm 1-2 days before.

no problem dada. Hope you join us :)

As I said all depends on which Katwa local we take, from Howrah or Sealdah.

From howrah, timgings are 5:45, 8:00 and from Sealdah it is at 8:00. More earlier we go, more time we spend. Again, it would be difficult to get 5:45 train from Howrah. People can also board from places like Bally, Bhadreswar, Bandel etc. Nothing is confirmed, if max of us is not able to avail 5:45 train from howrah, then we would take train from Sealdah at 8:00. Sealdah is far more convenient for all than howrah.

remember that most katwa locals from howrah and the one and only from sealdah and are galloping in nature and dont stop at less popular stations.make a note of that.
