  1. Indelible impression etched. The green welcomes and soothes your tired soul….far from the madding crowd, this journey is an attempt to explore your hitherto unknown emotions……I am now a diehard “Monchashaite”!

  2. I would love to visit within 1-10 of June. I want to take my parents who are both heart patients. Will a doctor on call be arranged on emergency. Moreover I would like to know what activities can a child below ten can look forward to in Monchasha? My husband is into angling, will we be charged for it? Please let me know.

    1. Monchasha is closed now for schedule renovation. Will be opened on July. Yes, We can arrange doctor on emergency.
      Angling can be done free of charge but in a “Catch & Release” model.
