Susunia Hills, Bankura

3.5
Susunia (Bengali: শুশুনিয়া) is a hill of southern West Bengal, India. It is known for its holy spring, its natural beauty, its rich flora and the rock faces on which many of the famous mountaineers of this region started their journey. It is one of the rich reserves of medicinal plants. Susunia is situated at the north-western part of Bankura District.

Susunia Hill is a known archeological and fossil site. Fossil remains of lion, giraffe, hyaena and many other animal species have been discovered from areas around. The so claimed 'oldest' rock inscription of West Bengal is located here. There is an ancient carved monolith (Narasingha stone) standing at the point where the spring water is coming out of another stone gargoyle or curved projected spout. It is a good location for camping and rock-climbing. Susunia village itself is home to honoured master craftsmen of exquisite stone-carving. Susunia is an important archaeological site in Bankura district yielding stone age tools. It is believed that there earlier was a fort built by King Chandravarman. Some 4th century inscriptions are there, referring to a place called Pushkarana, once the capital of Chandravarman. Modern-day Pakhanna is considered to be ancient Pushkarana.

  • If you are imagining rock climbing or a cool place to hang out, this place is not for you. Though after total maintenance the place can be as good as any oher good hills of India but it seems that government doesn't give a damn to make the place more attractable to the tourists.
  • The scenic beauty of the place is good, but my only concern is people are making the place dirty, and government is not taking any proper step to maintain this tourist spot. If local authorities will take proper care of this place it can emerge as a good tourist destination.
  • Its a beautyful place. Need 1 hour to climb top of the hill. There is a water flow. You can drink the water directly and its very good for health. There is a garden also. A fair held during the winter season. The way is full of stones to climb top of the hill.
  • Nice place. tough to ride. Little water falls where local people baths and drink that water.
  • Nice place... One can test his /her stamina by climbing the rocky hills of susunia. It's a plastic free zone as declared by the government and a conserved place under forest department but one will get to see plastic packs bottles littering the beautiful place. We should keep it clean and it's our duty.
